Challenge Yourself on The Rivington Trail


If you’re an experienced half marathon runner and fancy pushing your limits on a scenic trail, challenge yourself at the Rivington Half Marathon. 

Last year’s race was a huge success and the organisers, Chorley Ladies FC, were able to fund training facilities, kit and transport during their 2017/2018 season in the Women’s Premier League. The ladies have had a number of successful years marshalling so know the route inside out. This event is the Ladies main fundraiser to ensure that they can continue to play in the women's Premier League.

The route covers 13.1 miles of pathed, tarmacked and rough terrain, the scenic course works its way through the rural parts of Bolton and Chorley.
