Bolton Abbey Running Festival 12th Nov 2017

Run Bolton Abbey is an exciting new trail-running event, sponsored by Midgley Motor Cars, with a choice of distances to suit runners of all abilities. Whichever you choose, run for Manorlands Hospice!

There was a choice of a 10K, 10 mile, half marathon or two-mile fun run.

This was a unique opportunity to run on exclusive parts of the estate not usually accessible to the public and we guarantee the autumnal colours will be stunning!

About the routes

The routes were on a mixture of paths, tracks, woodland trails and open land. “Run through Strid Wood, over Dicken Dike, climb the Valley of Desolation and the Launde Plantation and take on a stretch of Barden Fell. A diverse range of surfaces and stunning landscapes all crammed into one challenging run.  All routes started and finished at the Cavendish Pavillion Car Park, with the added benefit of chip-timing.

Well done to the 3 of you that took part in the 10k race.
