Get fitter and healthier in a fun and supportive way!

We’ve teamed up with Horwich Harriers and Lets Keep Bolton Moving to offer a fantastic Couch to 5K programme this Spring.

Bolton Nightrun 2023 is a fun and friendly event with great support along the town centre route complete with a fabulous finish in front of the town hall down the famous Ironman red carpet.

Choose from the 5k or 10k route. You might even win a free gym membership at Bolton Arena Sports Village*.

New to running? A Couch to 5k programme could be perfect for you.

Couch to 5k is a friendly and fun way to get exercising that’s proven to work. It starts slowly and builds your fitness with achievable goals.

Plus, everyone who completes their Couch to 5k by running NightRun will be entered into a draw to win a three month gym membership at Bolton Arena Sports Village.

You can train on your own using the free app, or join the Horwich RMI Couch to 5k group. Whatever works for you!

* Sign up to either of these and complete the event and you will be entered into the draw to win a free 3 month gym membership at Bolton Arena Sports Village.

Experienced runners

This year, for the first time, NightRun has a 10k as well as 5k course. Also new for this year, everyone will receive their official time.

So, you can use NightRun as part of your training schedule or as a chance to earn a new personal best. Either way, you’ll enjoy the support of the crowds along the route.

Hundreds of people have already signed up for the 10k.

Run as a team

  • Designated meeting place and start line group photo (minimum of 30 mins before the run)
  • Group pack and t-shirt collection
