Wigan Trail 10k


Due to the current COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic we have taken the decision to postpone the Wigan Trail 10k to next year – May 2022. Any race entry fees from 2020 will be refunded. Like all event organisers (and we are runners too) we have made this decision with heavy hearts but have no choice and we hope everyone stays safe and healthy.

Event is held at the 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. To see how beautiful the area is now please take a look at our aerial footage of the 2018 race at the foot of the page.

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.

    • 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.

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