Wigan Trail 10k news – one month to go!

It’s coming round fast now, it’s just one month to go to the Wigan Trail 10k organised by Wigan Harriers. It’s on 10th July at Amberswood Nature Reserve with race registration and finish line at Spring View Sports and Community Club.

Amberswood is a 160 hectare nature reserve with over 6 km of high quality paths. It’s home to a series of small lakes, ponds and woodlands and makes a fantastic setting for the annual trail race. We work closely with Wigan Council and “Friends of Amberswood” to deliver a high quality event for runners of all standards to enjoy.


For more information from Wigan Council please see here


The route itself takes in some of the best that Amberswood can offer, meadow and lake views, bridges, woodland paths & carved totem poles. We have picked the best paths to enable runners to really focus on enjoying their race and fulfilling their potential.The overhead photo below really shows off how much green you will see!

Please see the all important race route 

The route is essentially two laps with a refreshing water station pit stop just after 5 km. Some runners expressed a desire to see distance markers so this year they will be added but please note as it’s a trail race they will be an approximate guide. We have friendly marshals positioned around the course always ready to offer friendly encouragement.


The race results will be complied by the renowned John Schofield and available on the website ukresults.net. It will be the intention to make them available as quickly as possible.

Whilst runners are celebrating their success with a post race pie ‘n’ peas (free for pre race day entries) in the licensed bar the winner’s list will be compiled.


There are prizes for the first three males and females plus prizes in each 5 year vet category so plenty of opportunities for many winners.

Registration will open at 9.00am for runners to either collect their numbers or register. The race will start at 10.30am approximately 400 metres away from the club house just inside the nature reserve.

There are three different ways to enter now to make sure you get the all important PIE!
