Macclesfield Running Festival has announced that East Cheshire NHS Charity (formerly ECHO), the charity of East Cheshire NHS Trust, is the official charity partner for 2023.

The family event, which is previously known as ‘Run Macc Fest’, is organised by and is hosted in partnership with Macclesfield Harriers and Athletic Club. It takes place on Sunday 29th October and offers distances of 5k, 10k with half marathon places also available. Runners will pass through the historic town of Macclesfield and then head out into the Cheshire Countryside.

East Cheshire NHS Charity helps East Cheshire NHS Trust go the extra mile for its staff, patients and service users. They raise funds for not only Macclesfield District General Hospital, but also Knutsford Community Hospital, Congleton War Memorial Hospital and a range of community services. They support research, training, enhanced facilities and cutting-edge medical equipment over and above what the NHS funds.

The charity has a limited number of early bird charity places available, so get in early and support your local NHS charity today.

Lily Preston, Fundraising and Events Manager at East Cheshire NHS Charity said, “We’re so pleased to be partnering with Macclesfield Running Festival. It’s going to be a great event and a good opportunity for friends, family members and businesses to come together and support their local NHS charity”.

The RunThrough team said, “’We at RunThrough are proud to be supporting East Cheshire NHS Trust at this year’s Macclesfield Running Festival. We are aware that running events not only have an incredibly positive impact on the participants themselves, but there is also a far wider impact on local charities when working together to engage and support the local community.”
