Five Mile April Run
On Mothering Sunday last weekend some 100 athletes gathered at Swains Valley for a five mile run to Werneth Low and back.

The event was organised by Jason Chapman the manager of Sweatshop Hyde.
Here the runners are leaving Swains Valley to join the Trans Pennine Trail.
Already some runners are cutting through the trees rather than rounding the pathway.
As they head along the trail towards Stockport Road, at least nobody is running down the bridlepath.
Half an hour later and the first returning runner (on the right) watches the fourth finisher come in.
The club have a facebook page which is open to public view.
A full report on the race can be found at the Kiwi Classic Events website.
Another of my photographs of the race can be found on Hyde Daily Photo.
