Why Meridian?

The race starts less than two kilometres from the Greenwich Meridian Line, which in 1884, became the Prime Meridian of the World; Longitude 0º. Every place on earth is measured in terms of its distance east or west from this line. If you are looking for a photo opportunity a plaque and sign can be found on Welwick Rd just after the Equestrian Centre, to the south east of Partington village.

Route Description

Route

Following the successful running of the Meridian Ultra Road Race last year we have decided to utilise this cracking venue to serve up a fast, flat 10-mile road race.

The Route starts and finishes within the Leisure park by the stunning fishing Lake. Once you have exited the park grounds you head out and back towards the historic village of Sunk Island on quiet country lanes with minimal climb and descent.
