I offer guided runs around the Bolton, Wigan and Chorley area. Sometimes it can be daunting to head out and explore on your own, so you tell me how far you want to run, and the area, and I plot a route, accompany you on your run, and provide you with a map of your route.

Recently, for example, I’ve guided runners around Rivington, showing them the main sights of the terraced gardens, Liverpool Castle, the reservoirs and, of course, Rivington Pike. I like to show people the routes that aren’t so well known, such as the hidden waterfalls and the quiet woodlands, but it’s your call – you tell me what you want, and I will organise your run.

A few ideas for guided trail runs

  • Rivington
  • Winter Hill and Two Lads
  • The Winter Hill Trig Points and Summits
  • Great Hill, White Coppice and Spitlers Edge
  • Darwen Tower and Sunnyhurst Woods
  • Duxbury Woods and Yarrow Valley (Chorley)
  • Haigh Woodland and Borsdane Woods (Wigan and Hindley)

If a guided run appeals to you, please complete the enquiry form below and I will be in touch. I charge £15 per hour, which usually equates to around 4-5 miles of running trails when we factor in time to admire the views too.
