Event details

  • Date: 11 November 2018
  • Location: Bolton Abbey, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 6AL
  • Start time 11am start (after observing a minute's silence)

Following the sell-out success of the first Run Bolton Abbey, the event is back for its second edition.

In 2017, over 1,300 runners enjoyed running in the stunning scenery of Bolton Abbey and we raised almost £30,000 to support the brilliant work of Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

There is a choice of distances to suit all abilities of runners - a 10K, 10 Mile, half marathon and a fun run. This is a unique opportunity to run on parts of the estate not usually accessible to the public and we guarantee the autumnal colours will be stunning!

A unique fundaising experience

The routes are on a mixture of paths, tracks, woodland trails and open land. You'll run through Strid Wood, over Dicken Dike, climb the Valley of Desolation and the Launde Plantation and take on a stretch of Barden Fell. All routes start and finish at the Cavendish Pavillion Car Park and benefit from chip-timing.

All participants will receive a high-quality bespoke Run Bolton Abbey Medal as they did last year.

We listened to your feedback last year and have made some changes

We held our hands up after the 2017 event and admitted we got some things wrong, but these issues have been addressed for 2018.

We’ve made some adjustments to the 10K route, and added two gates where we had stiles last year. The start will also be staggered in order to spread the runners out more and the 10K route has changed to avoid bottlenecks.

To get the public into the estate quicker, the parking fee has been absorbed into the event entry fee for 2018 so you will drive straight in without stopping.

Places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment!
