The Routes

Harborne

Wheel of Time 6K

Apedale

Staffordshire’s newest country park, Apedale, was still open cast mining back in the 1990’s. Now, here’s your chance to explore the transformed landscape. Enclosed woodland trails soon ensure that you will be upwardly mobile. The rewards for your effort are plenty. Stunning views across Stoke on Trent in the distance and a pit wheel that you’ll pass by along the route. You will also have the opportunity to tackle the ‘Cross Stream Challenge’! The lovely tea-room at the finish beckons!   

Quick Whitted

Quick Whitted 7K

Ford Green, Smallthorne

A trip to an industrial time capsule beckons, as the former Chatterley Whitfield colliery bears witness to the region’s mining history. Your gently ascending outward route has a rendezvous with what is widely acknowledged to be the most comprehensive surviving example of a deep mine site in England. Rewards aplenty too, on the surfaced downhill return leg. By the finish, and like the whole area, you’ll be transformed.  

Coyney Canyon

Coyney Canyon Carry On 7K

Weston Coyney

Weston Coyney’s Park Hall Country Park is a stunning nature reserve with small lakes, myriad heathland/woodland trails and dramatic sandstone canyons. Your mazey, meandering journey offers constantly changing trails, capped off with panoramic views! It’ll be a good workout too and the most undulating of all our SixPack routes. But, we think, possibly the most rewarding.   

The Edge of the Wedge

The End of the Wedge 8K

Wedgwood Estate

We say: “Time for a potter”. This gratifying route starts and finishes within the Wedgewood Estate. Flat throughout, it offers constantly changing vistas. The serenity of the Trent & Mersey canal gives way to forest fervour within Hem Heath Wood before some lakeside splendour and Barlaston beauty. 

Towpath Potter marker

Towpath Potter 6K

Kidsgrove

Two’s company they say, and, on this flat route, you’ll be accompanied along sections of both the Trent & Mersey and Macclesfield canals. Heading initially to Church Lawton, the canals are linked by some lovely woodland. Rural rhythm soon then gives way to tow-path serenity along part of the Gritstone Trail. True.

Wild West

The Wild West 10K

Longport

Heritage heavy, our longest SixPack route starts and finishes at the wildlife haven that is Westport Lake. Our urban escape leads you along an interesting canal tow path, city-centre bound, passing dramatic reminders of Stoke’s pottery past. It then exploits some lovely parkland and greenway spaces.  The final section delivers panoramic vistas across Westport Lake. A run that will get you stoked!
