Full Tour of Tameside
The Tour of Tameside is a four day festival of running which takes in the best sights and sounds that Tameside has to offer. A variety of running routes and terrains challenge participants both physically and mentally, with all stages having been carefully chosen to be achievable for runners of all abilities.
The original week-long Tour was founded by marathon legend Dr Ron Hill MBE in the 1981, the event was a huge hit and we are extremely proud of the support shown by our sponsors, supporters and of course the participants in previous races.
