Littleborough, a place made for running!

Littleborough is a place made for running and many do not realise some of the great runs that can be had around it. With this in mind I have designed a fast and picturesque course that is run on good runnable roads, paths and some country lanes. The course, after the first start section is on a small gradual decline in terms of elevation (see elevation chart). This makes the race feel down hill and makes for a really enjoyable running experience.

Races are chip timed so results are highly accurate and available live as runners cross the line.
The course is certified by Course measurement and insured under UKA.

Historical results from the first to the last race.

Other Results

The route starts and finishes from the layby next to the canal behind the train station.

It starts with a 1k gradual climb, moving onto 2 laps around the lake (very flat and scenic) before returning back down the hill (that you came up) for a fast finish.

The course is pretty good for times and several people managed a PB / SB last year.

We hope you enjoy it!
