Event Description


Don't miss a chance to be a part of Bollington Harriers' club history - sign up now to the club's inaugural Happy Valley Trail Half Marathon race:


The Happy Valley Trail Half Marathon is a new trail running event in the hills and valleys surrounding Bollignton, taking place on Sunday 15 May. With a total of 770m of ascent, the challenging route starts and finishes in Bollington and includes an ascent of White Nancy, Kerridge Ridge and Sponds HIll.


Join us, as we make an immediate ascent up to Kerridge Ridge from Adelphi Mill, kick-starting an undulating half marathon over varied terrain and with some gorgeous views included.


After making our way over to Harrop Woods, we'll be calling on all of our grit and determination to climb all the way up to the wilds of Sponds Hill, before enjoying a pleasant downward trip over Bakestonedale Moor to a welcome aid station at the road.


Bollington soon comes back in to view as we head south, but don't be deceived! Our descent back in to the Happy Valley has one more little surprise in store as we make a sharp upwards to visit our beloved White Nancy, following which it's a quick trip past the quarries to race HQ.


The route will be fully marked and marshalled, but copies of the route will also be provided. One aid station will be available on the route. 


There's a course map here


Do join us and help set the times to beat for what we hope will become an annual club fixture.

If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, please do not enter the event.

Online Entry
The applicant’s place in an event is confirmed by the completion of the transaction through the online payment system. It is the responsibility of the applicant to check that the entry details have been entered correctly.

Deferrals, Transfers & Waiting Lists
Transfers or deferrals are normally permitted up to 48 hours prior to the event taking place.

We offer transfers/deferrals to anyone with a place who is no longer able to compete in their event up to the transfer/deferral deadline as above.

When transferring entries the people must follow the process in the online entry system. On completion of a Transfer, participants understand, accept and agree to our full terms and conditions.
Transferring of entries between participants outside of our official transfer process is strictly forbidden.

When an event sells out, we may operate a waiting list. As places become free, those on the waiting list will be contacted by email in the order that they were added to the list and given a time frame in which to confirm they still want the place and the process for registering/payment. If we do not receive confirmation from them within that time frame, the place is no longer open to them and the transfer is offered to the next person on the list.

Personal health and fitness
You understand that participating in an event is potentially hazardous, and you should not enter and participate unless you are medically fit to do so.
We recommend that you consult your doctor prior to undertaking training for all events and you accept that it is your responsibility to make sure you are medically fit and capable of taking part. We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to stop any participant from taking part if we deem him or her unfit, including mid-race removal from the course where necessary
