Top Bolton Council figures such as Chief Executive Sue Johnson and Director of Adult Services Rachel Tanner were set to take part, as well as the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham. 

Also taking part were medics at the Royal Bolton Hospital.

The staff geared up to raise thousands of pounds for Our Bolton NHS Charity with the proceeds going to patients, service-users and their families.

The inaugural event, organized by Bolton Wanderers in the Community, was organised for people to have fun, take part in a  personal challenge or to raise funds for local charities.

Working in partnership with Bolton Wanderers FC, Bolton Council, Bolton CVS and Burnden Road Runners, Bolton Wanderers in the Community,  hope the run will encourage the Bolton community to get more active, provide an opportunity for increased community engagement and to support local charities across the town.

Bolton Wanderers Chairman, Sharon Brittan previously said: “We want to make sure our Club is a platform for good in our town and community, and so we are delighted to be able to host this event which will provide the opportunity to not only offer people a personal challenge but also to raise funds for a local Bolton charity close to their heart.”
