Fit for the Wild

The Sunnywood Project are passionate about getting people outdoors in as many ways as possible.
A brand new initiative from The Sunnywood Project to encourage both “want to be” Runners and Hikers to start their journey exploring our wild green spaces supported by our friendly, Run / Hike Leaders.

Over an initial period of 6 weeks you will be supported to start running or hiking commencing with less challenging routes and distances, gradually increasing distance and elevation each week.


Combined with some basic strengthening exercises, we aim for you to see improvements in your fitness with the ultimate aim of either completing the The Sunnywood Project 5k Burrs Community Run or joining us on a challenging hike over Holcombe Moor at the end of the programme.


Ever started a programme and not finished it? why not give this a try?

We are all in this together.


Fit For The Wild takes place on a Thursday evening or Sunday morning - of you have the option to really push yourself and do both.


Fit for the Wild will take place within a variety of green spaces throughout Bury.


There are currently no Fit For The Wild courses ongoing, please check back for availability.
