About the Event

The Link 6 Mile Challenge fundraiser for Margaret Haes Riding Centre. 

The Village Link connects all of Bury’s historical villages and is mainly on trail paths passing by a series of iconic landmarks, woodland and open meadow - truly showcasing the stunning green spaces around the town.


This 6 mile route passes through Nangreaves and Ramsbottom, finishing in Holcombe. 

Please note that being a point-to-point route, own transport to and from the start location will be required. 

The event is  about completing the challenging distance with the camaraderie of other like-minded people around you, while raising valuable funds for Margaret Haes Riding Centre – there should be no desire to ‘beat’ anyone or break any records and our friendly guides and teams will be there to offer a supportive pep talk when required. 

What's included:

• Finisher memento 

• Finish food and drink supplies

• Secure car parking at the start line in Burrs country Park.

Kit requirements:

• Dressed for the forecast weather. Spare dry clothing.

• Fully charged mobile phone

• Map recommended. e.g. print of route, or Ordnance Survey 287. (Route links and GPX will be provided)

• Compass recommended.

• Survival blanket or bag recommended.

• First aid kit. Personal care and medicines, Compeed/blister plasters, etc

• Suitable trail shoes or boots 

• Personal snacks/food/drinks


Please find the route links below, however these are subject to change. Full route details and GPX files will be provided in the week prior to the event.

As a non-profit, charitable organisation, dedicated to using the outdoors to enrich lives, the proceeds from all our adventures help fund and sustain our youth service and other community activities that promote the benefits of embracing the outdoors. 

With the emphasis on exploration to improve physical, mental and social wellbeing and less about competitive times or distances, our adventures are all led by a qualified, knowledgeable and experienced team who will provide encouragement, support and humour along the way.
