HUNDREDS of runners are expected to put their best foot forward at Frodsham’s annual Downhill Run.
On Saturday, September 10, children and adults will stream down the steep lanes and roads as the 6th annual fun run rolls into town.
The much-loved race, which was threatened with closure after councillors and police considered cancelling the event due to cost and staffing problems, will see runners pound from the top of Frodsham Hill before finishing at the Community Centre on Fluin Lane.
This year families will also be able to enjoy a fun fair and live entertainment during the afternoon at a fete, where live jazz and dancers will be joined by clowns and circus entertainers to teach youngsters juggling and tricks.
Visitors can tuck into burgers and hot dogs while browsing the stalls, before heading over to enjoy the wild rides at Silcock’s fairground which returns again to the market town from September 8 - 10.
More than 250 runners are expected to take part in the race, supported by Widnes Vikings RLFC, Forest Hills Hotel, Frodsham Town Council, Lawless the Bakers, Frodsham & Helsby Rotary Club and many others, which begins at 12pm on Saturday, September 10.
Entry is now open for the Downhill Run and closes on Friday, September 9. Forms are available from Frodsham Community Centre or online at www.frodshamcc.co.uk.
