The Tour of Tameside returns to the borough for a fifth consecutive year in June.

With the sun currently shining, there’s no better time to start your training in preparation for the four-day event, which takes place from Thursday, June 13, until Sunday June 16.

Last year’s event attracted a record-breaking 1,200, which included 400 females.

In what was described as the best Tour to date, runners from as far as Berlin, Germany competed, along with the usual representatives from East Cheshire Harriers, Mossley Running Club and Hyde Village Striders, plus Glossopdale Harriers, Stockport Harriers and Thornbury Running Club.

Kirsty Longley and Mohammed Abureseq won the overall female and male category respectively. 

We attended the four days and captured some of the highlights.
