The Routes

Stairway_to_Heaven

Stairway To Heaven 5K

Tandle Hill Country Park, Royton

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!      

Nip_from_the_Nook

Nip From The Nook 8K

Daisy Nook Country Park, Failsworth

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.

Born_out_of_Medlock

Born Out Of Medlock 6K

Sportscity

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. 

Underneath_The_Arches

Underneath the Arches 10K

Clifton Country Park, Clifton

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!

Worsley_Womble

Worsley Womble 7K

Worlsey Delph

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!

Nip_to_the_Nob

Nip To The Nob

Moses Gate Country Park, Bolton​

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.
