Run the trails of Bolton Abbey

The Solstice Saunter 2024 is a five mile run on the trails of the breathtaking Bolton Abbey, organised by the Airedale Dodgers as a fundraising event for Sue Ryder.

The event is timed for the evening of the Summer Solstice, which because 2024 is a leap year, will be on Thursday 20th June 2024.

The route

The Solstice Saunter is a circular route of five miles that starts from the Cavendish Pavilion car park and runs a clockwise loop up through the Strid Wood to Barden Bridge, then back along the river bank to the finish line at Cavendish Pavilion.

The route goes along tarmac and gravel paths with a short section on grass. Every participant will receive a Solstice Saunter medal.

There is also the option to do your own Virtual Solstice Saunter, running a five mile route of your choice on the longest day, which also includes a Solstice Saunter medal.

Our event partners

The Solstice Saunter is organised by the Airedale Dodgers, in support of Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice, alongside our partners at the Bolton Abbey Estate.

The event is kindly sponsored by Ecology Building Society.
