Explore the Wild

Our weekly adventures!

Hike or Run in safe and supportive groups

4 to 6 miles

6 to 10 km

Sundays 8:30am

Thursdays 7pm

Our weekly runs and hikes, affectionately named 'Explore the Wild', take place on a Sunday morning and are repeated on a Thursday evening. These hikes and runs follow a series structure of six-weeks around a particular theme or focus - We may be showcasing local reservoirs or routes, telling spooky tales, sharing history and folklore, or simply getting out to beat the Winter blues!

 

 Whatever the theme, each outing is a chance to engage with natural beauty and the outdoor offers of Bury, Greater Manchester, and Rossendale, learn new routes, and meet new folk.

Fun and fitness year round!

All our weekly routes are carefully designed with those who want to explore as a group in mind - we all go out together and we come back together. On each event, the Hikers and Runners start at the same point, but set off in opposite directions passing each other along the route.

 

Like all our events, there's always a community feel and a sense of collective achievement - Our staff and volunteers ensure no-one gets let behind or feels left out. And, of course, all the proceeds go towards funding our Youth Programmes and Community Activities

Leave the planning and navigation to us and just enjoy venturing out into the open, enjoying the views and company.
