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

Organised by Sports Tours International, the iconic running event will be taking place across four days from June 13-16.

Sticking with the format of the past three years, the event will kick off on Thursday night with the Cross Trail 10k, followed by the Hell on the Fell on Friday evening, and then the Hero Half Marathon on Saturday. The event concludes with the Hyde 7 Mile on Sunday.

In a bid to prepare for the event, Up and Running, a British retailing group and sponsor of the Tour, which is located on Deansgate in Manchester, has coordinated a Social Run Group. Hannah Dabinett joined the group at the end of last year and is now ready to tackle the forthcoming challenge. We spoke to her about her reasons for doing so.
