The Jackals Run – 10km and Half marathon trail race

March 8, 2020 @ 9:45 am GMT

Welcome to the Jackals Trail Race 2020

The Jackals Run is a well organised, beautifully, challenging trail with amazing bling for your efforts plus hot food at the finish line and a bar… What more could one ask for!

There is plenty of parking and the atmosphere of the day is always awesome!

After a tough climb out of Sunnyhurst woods, you will head into the picturesque tockholes forest before taking on Lions Den and Aggies staircase. From there you will head across to the Iconic Darwen Tower where our event photographer will catch a memory of your day with us before a steep and fast descent back into Sunnyhurst!

Of course there is a second lap for those who would like to run the half marathon distance and when you cross the finishline, we will have some awesome bling AND hot food available for you at the Olde English Kiosk!From myself and the Howler team, we look forward to seeing you at the startline on Sun 10 Mar 2019!



All events start and finish at the Olde English Kiosk within Sunnyhurst Woods, Darwen, BB30LA. The trail will be very well signed and marshalled for your safety (NOTE.2018, some signs were removed on the course). From the startline, the trail gets steep, pretty quickly! So ensure you are conditioned to take on long, steep ascents!


Parking is minimal within Sunnyhurst woods, however, there is plenty of parking along Earnsdale road, next to the woods. Please be at the startline at 9.45am for a race brief.


Registration will take place at The Olde English Kiosk. There will also be a bag drop available at this location free of charge. Registration will be open from 8am.


Of course! And a hot stew at the end too!


If there is an emergency situation with a runner on the course, Bolton Mountain Rescue are on standby to extract.


Trail or Fell Trainers are an absolute must for this event.


Please ensure you are carrying atleast 500ml water, snack, hat, gloves, jacket, fully charged mobile phone, money, GPX of the route OR map and compass.


10km has a 1.45hr cut off and HM has a 3.30hr cut off


Runners are permitted to listen to music but we ask you only have 1 earbud in so you are able to hear any instructions from marshalling staff.


There will be a water station on the route. Should you require more water on route, we advise you carry it with you. There will be a hot meal at the finish line after your race. There is also a licenced bar that will be open! We hope you stay and have a drink with us afterwards!
