Welcome to The Arthur James ShakERR

Previously the Saltaire Shaker


Formerly known as the "Saltaire Shaker" this years race is named as a tribute to the late Arthur James who encouraged and inspired many a local runner to "RUN BECAUSE YOU CAN". The route is slightly different this year but still approx. 13km multi terrain, mainly on canal towpath but with an undulating woodland section. There will be a technical t-shirt for all race finishers please indicate the size you would like and we will endeavour to provide.
