Run England Hits Bolton

Run England

Run England has announced plans to launch a new group in Bolton, Lancashire, which aims to attract local people of all running abilities. The 'Jog Bolton' running group will be the second of its kind in the area and will further strengthen the Run England network's objective of getting the nation out running.

Rowan Ardill, the event director of the highly popular Bolton Parkrun, will lead the Jog Bolton running group. The group will be aimed at recruiting beginners and improvers by providing an alternative to the Bolton running group, which is held on a Monday, and the weekly Saturday parkrun.

To keep an eye on the progress of the Jog Bolton group visit the news section of the Run England website. Membership for the Run England network is free and you can find your nearest club at their local running group section.

If you would like to be part of a group but can't find one in your area, you can contact the Run England team about gaining a Leadership in Running Fitness qualification and co-ordinating your own group.
