A CHARITY trail-running event held at the Bolton Abbey Estate in November has raised £7,500 for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

Run Bolton Abbey, which is now in its fourth year, saw hundreds of people run various distances across the paths, tracks and woodland trails of the estate.

The event was once again supported by volunteers from Skipton Athletics Club, who presented a cheque to Andrew Wood, community fundraising manager at the club's annual general meeting last month.

The funds raised will help the Oxenhope hospice to continue providing expert palliative care, advice and support to those living with life-limiting conditions, as well as supporting their families.

Paul Norman, coach at Skipton Athletics Club, said: "We’re delighted to continue supporting Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice. All the marshals that help at Run Bolton Abbey are regular runners who enjoy giving back to the sport they love while serving an important charitable cause at the same time."

Andrew Wood added: "A huge thank you to Skipton Athletics Club for their fantastic and continued support of Run Bolton Abbey - we really couldn't do it without them. We’re extremely proud to announce that they’ll be returning as a partner for next year’s event, along with our headline sponsor Midgley Motors.”

Entries for this year's Run Bolton Abbey event, which will take place on November 13, are now open. To sign up, visit: sueryder.org/runboltonabbey or for more information email adam.brunskill@sueryder.org.
