Challenge Yourself on The Rivington Trail


Fancy a challenge?  Then join us for the Rivington Half Marathon 2021 and push your limits on the most breathtakingly beautiful half marathon there is!

The event is organised by Chorley Women FC and is our main fundraising event … thanks to the success of the race in 2019 we were able to fund training facilities, kit and transport . The ladies have had a number of successful years marshalling and the feedback from runners has always been excellent.

All proceeds go towards helping the club  play in the FA Women's National 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.
