Posted: 09/04/2014 at 09:47

Just to clarify: the medal is only for the 2.5k fun runners and the free pie and peas is for advance entries to the 10k race only.

Entries rolling in now for what looks like its going to be a record year for the event!

Online entry now open for the Wigan Trail 10k, (formerly known as the Amberswood Trail 10k).

The big news is the FREE Pie and Peas for all pre-entries is back by popular demand!

 A quick and basically flat off road course on bridle and pathways, followed by calories replenishment in tradtional local style!

The event has built a reputation for its low key, friendly atmosphere welcoming all levels of runner. Its speedy enough to keep the fast club runners happy, and picturesque enough to give a taste of off-road running without being an outright hilly mudfest!

With the rain earlier in the week it was looking like trail shoes were the way to go, and if you have them then definitely bring them!

Now we have a few warm days most of the route is fairly firm with only the odd patch of outright sogginess. I wouldnt use your best road shoes but you would get away with  an old pair if you dont have trail shoes.

Weather is looking tremendous for Sunday though!

Weather forecast looks fabulous for sunday in Wigan: Bright sunshine from 7am with a high of 14c. Trails should be in perfect condition for the races.

Hoping for as lovely day out amongst the greenery of Amberswood with the chance of a refreshing beverage back at race HQ!

Bar open throughout the day to keep race supporters happy, with a small kiddies play area for the little ones.

Forget the garden centre...BnQ can wait till another day! Get your running shoes on and come out to play!

Hi All

No medal or memento for the 10k this year in an attempt to keep the costs down. We are considering if runners would be prepared to see a small increase in entry fees for next year in return for a memento of some kind? Feedback via here welcome!

The 2.5k isnt just for kids! We do have a lot of youngsters doing it, but we already have some grown ups pre-entered! 

The 10k has a minimum age limit of 16 so definitely not kids.

On-line entry now closed but entry on the day available.

Its looking like a decent weekend weatherwise so perfect conditions for a trail run!

We went out for a recce of the course today and despite the recent tain its looking like you could get away with a road shoe if we have a few days of sun. Probably best to use a trail shoe if you have them though.

Entires on the day available but get your pre-entries into be sure.
