Are you ready?

Wigan Trail 10k in it’s 5th year organised by Wigan Harriers is now open for entry.

Amberswood the setting for the race is known as one of Wigan’s Greenhearts so it should be no surprise to anyone what a fantastic area it is to run in, but surprised is what first timers often are. The ex mining land is now a blend of woodland, meadow and lakes which has developed into a very natural setting and is superb for running.


The majority of the race is on excellent tracks with the route taking in some of the fine woodland. What appeals to many runners is how good the tracks are to run on and helped by how flat the course is, it really helps produce some excellent times.


A water station is positioned halfway round the course run by some of our enthusiastic marshals.



The finish of the race is in front of the club house so an ideal spot for friends and family to watch the runners make the final dash for the line, cheering them home. They can then all enjoy a refreshing drink whilst the pies are baking in the oven. It’s usually a fantastic day for everyone.


We look forward to welcoming runners of all abilities to join at Amberswood and encourage you to pre-enter today.
