Bolton Half Marathon

Why the Bolton Community Half Marathon?

2017 will be the 2nd Bolton Community Half marathon and not one to miss, Last year's race was a great success with thousands of people turning up to give their support.

The half marathon is hopefully a lead up to the Bolton Community Full Marathon in the future. The Bolton Marathon started in 1981 and was one of the first and largest marathons in the country, so let's try and get it back on the map!
