The Easter 10 is the main open event organised by the the Club.  It takes place every Good Friday.  Typically, 1100-1300 runners compete as a useful stage in their pre-London Marathon build-up, running 10 miles on quiet lanes west of Maidenhead.

See the Easter 10 page for full details of the latest race.

The MAC Road Running Championship

The MAC Road Running Championships is a series open to all Club senior members, running April to March to encourage healthy club competition. A level playing field is assured by factoring both age and gender into the overall male and female road running champions of the year.

Seven local races are nominated as targets, typically three half-marathons, three 10k-s and a 5k.  A member has to finish at least three to quality for the the Club championship, which is awarded in July at the annual Awards Dinner (see Social page).
