From the SEMMMS website:
The A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road is nearly finished and we want to give you a chance to come and explore it for yourself before it opens to traffic!
On Sunday 7th October, a day of community sporting activities for all the family will be taking place on the new road, giving you a chance to come along and join in the fun, as well as get an up close look at the work that’s been taking place.
Whether you like to run, walk or cycle there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
All of the events will be free for everyone to attend with most of the events taking place on the section of the relief road just off Macclesfield Road, SK7 6DT.
A free regular shuttle bus will be running throughout the day from the Hazel Grove Park & Ride and visitors and runners/racers are being encouraged to use this so that we can keep the local roads clear.
