New Year Dash 2023

Bolton Arena would like to thank all participants who completed or volunteered in Sunday's New Year Dash 5k fun run.

Despite the wet conditions, there were over 100 people completing either the Adults' 5k and the Children's 2k fun run in partnership with Horwich Harriers.

As well as staying true to our mission of building an active healthy community, the purpose of the event was to raise funds for Urban Outreach Bolton. Following the success of the 'Christmas Dinner on Jesus' project, the partnership was once again a success.

Urban Outreach is a Christian charity providing foods for households in crisis; and person-centred support for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable adults and young people in Bolton.

Bolton Arena specifically would like to thank those who volunteered from Horwich Harriers members and the Lets Keep Bolton Moving team, both of whom we have successfully worked with before and look forward to collaborating in the future.

As the New Year Dash was originally planned to be a Santa dash, Bolton Arena can confirm that a Santa Dash 5k fun run will take this year on Sunday 10th December. For more information and bookings click here.

Head of Commercial, John Ashley said "After two unfortunate postponements for the Santa Dash, due to adverse weather, we were glad to complete the New Year Dash in a safe and enjoyable manner, allowing us to raise funds for Urban Outreach, whilst staying true to our values of building an active healthy community."

As we look forward to the summer, Bolton Arena are delighted to announce that we will be once again hosting a Community Active Day in July. Following on from last summer's success, this event offers families from the local community an opportunity to come to Bolton Arena to try out a number of sports and activities for free. More information on the event will be posted in the near future.
