Wigan Trail 10k

The Wigan Trail 10k will be held again on Sunday 13th May 2018 from Springview Sports and Community Club, Wigan (formerly known as the Amberswood 10k).


The event takes place through the trails of Wigan’s Greenheart Amberswood Park, situated between Spring View & Hindley.  This former mining area has been transformed into a beautiful 160 hectare nature reserve.


The 10k Trail Race takes in many of the scenic bridleways of Amberswood, following a mixture of terrain from woodland trails to wide open gravel paths. The route is flat and open giving competitors the opportunity to challenge and beat personal bests.

Pictured below is last year’s winner Colin Thompson (180) of Helsby R.C winning in exactly 36 minutes.

  5. I signed up with my partner via the postal entry a good few weeks ago. We have had nothing back? Will we get notification via the post back?

    • Hi Jane. You entries were received safe and sound and you are both on the start list! 1we will be sending out an email to every pre entry that supplied an email address just to let you know of the final details nearer race day. Numbers are collected on the day. We look forward to seeing you!

  6. Hi
    Can you let me know if we are registered as applied by post. Names Tracy Morvinson and Neil Adams. Thanks

  7. Hi Paul. The fun run results are my respinsit. Unfortunately I had a family bereavement in the Saturday night before the race. As you can imagine my priorities, time and energy have been somewhat limited recently. I did manage to sort out the 10k results but I have been too busy to even go for a run in the last couple of weeks. I hope to catch up on stuff shortly. Until then please accept my apologies for the delay

  8. Hi There,

    When can we expect to see the results posted? Also, will they be on this webpage or an externally hosted site?

    I look forward to hearing back from you soon

    • Hi Natalie, apologies a filter stopped me seeing your comment. There isn’t a kids event now, we just concentrate on the 10k, running two events concurrently was tough. For info there is a junior parkrun on Sundays at Skelmersdale.

  9. Fab weather. Beautiful scenery. Brilliant organization/marshals. Thank you. See you next year.
