Rivington Trail Half Marathon 2016

Information and registration

Now establised as a trail classic, the Rivington Trail Half Marathon goes from strength to strength attracting a wide cross section of runners from good club athletes to charity runners taking more than 2½ hrs to complete the challenging route.

The route is varied underfoot and gradient. Starting with a lap of Rivington and Blackrod School field to get stretched out the next mile is a climb on an old cobbled track towards Rivington Pike before dropping back down to Rivington Barns and on to Rivington Green - passing the Tea Rooms and a busy spectator spot.

From here it is partly on road before passing Yarrow Reservoir and dropping down to Angelzark Reservoir. The run along the east side of the reservoir is flat and scenic but that doesn't last long as the lakeside path climbs a steep hill and turns into a muddy trail path - remaining very scenic all the same.

At the end of the lake the route takes runners out alongside Angelzark Moor before doing a virtual U-turn and return to Angelzark reservoir at the picturesque White Coppice.

A nasty little climb takes runners up above the reservoir on the west side with great views across the water to the Moors beyond. Crossing the dam it is uphill from the 10mile point to Yarrow Reservoir and then back to Rivington Green, Rivington Barn and the finish at Rivington and Blackrod School.

Race entry fee: £20.
