A popular autumn trail-running event is returning to the Bolton Abbey Estate this November to raise vital funds for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.
Run Bolton Abbey, which is now in its fourth year, takes place on Sunday 14 November and will see people run various distances across the beautiful paths, tracks and woodland trails of the estate in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.
There are running routes to suit all abilities including a 10k, 10 mile or half marathon, as well as a 2.4 mile fun run for the whole family to enjoy. The races will start in waves just after 11.00am, following the two minute silence for Remembrance Day.
Run Bolton Abbey was cancelled last year due to COVID-19, but the previous event in 2019 saw hundreds of participants running in support of Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope, which provides expert palliative care, advice and support to people living with life-limiting conditions, as well as supporting their families.
Andrew Wood, Community Fundraising Manager, said: “We hope that lots of people will come and join us for Run Bolton Abbey this year, which provides a unique opportunity to run on parts of the estate not usually accessible to the public, all while taking in the stunning autumnal colours. The funds raised from this event will help us to continue to provide specialist care and bereavement support for local people and their families, filling their last days with love.”
Everyone who takes part in Run Bolton Abbey will benefit from chip timing to record their race time and will receive a bespoke wooden medal when they cross the finish line.
