Jackals Run 10km & Half Marathon Trail Race

Thank you to all who came and enjoyed the beautiful trails with us in 2018! ​It was lovely and muddy and it was fab seeing so many smiling faces at the end! The beauty with trail running is exploring the trails and having fun... And that in mind!


We are back in 2019...

The Jackals Run is fast becoming known as one of the best trail races in the North West and there is a reason why!

Well organised, beautifully, challenging trail with amazing bling for your efforts plus hot food at the finish line and a bar... What more could one ask for!

There is plenty of parking and the atmosphere of the day is awesome!

After a tough climb out of Sunnyhurst woods, you will head into the picturesque tockholes forest before taking on Lions Den and Aggies staircase. From there you will head across to the Iconic Darwen Tower where our event photographer will catch a memory of your day with us before a steep and fast descent back into Sunnyhurst!

There is a reason we sell out every year... Because our events are tough and rewarding with amazing bling... surrounded by like minded individuals!

​​I must tell you though, it sells out quickly with only a field of 200,, Do not miss your place!
