A scenic sortie, a woodland wonder and unquestionably the toughest hill you’ll encounter in this Greater Manchester North SixPack Challenge. But, and without a shadow of doubt, the most magnificent view that will linger long in the memory. It will be hard work getting to the top, but just remember the title of this route!
This SixPack route will give you numerous reasons to be cheerful. There is a peaceful river, a scenic canal, woodlands, industrial heritage and wildflower meadows. Multi-terrain and multi-surface on an ever-changing exploration of some beautiful running and walking terrain of which the nearby drivers on the M60 will be blissfully unaware.
The countryside on your urban doorstep. This sporty little number is very flat and packed full of bite sized points of interest. Clayton Vale, through which the River Medlock flows, is an absolute joy and a peaceful escape from the surrounding concrete chaos. Almost the whole route is on surfaced paths, and although there are a few ‘off-road’ sections, ordinary trainers should suffice.
A richly varied, scenic adventure created around woodland and water. Clifton Country Park and Philips Park bookend the route – the latter providing elation and elevation with a panoramic view of the city landscape as your reward. And yes, you do go underneath the arches!
Supremely enjoyable route that will allow you to get into a great rhythm on mainly excellent surfaced trails and paths. Fascinating heritage and first timers will be rewarded by this ‘green corridor’ loop from almost underneath the motorway!
This little creation packs quite a punch with lakes, rivers, woodland and canal-side paths and trails that weave their way over an area packed with industrial heritage. Wildlife aplenty as we take you out to Nob End. No, really! Carry on running we say.
