Pendle Parkrun



The course is 5000m (5K) long. The course is at Holt House Playing Fields, Colne. The course is run on a mixture of grass, tarmac paths, trail paths and stone paths. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.

Course Description

The course is two laps run on grass, tracks and tarmac paths. Start across the road from the pavilion by the corner of the first football pitch. Go straight along the side of this pitch to the edge of the playing fields, staying by the boundary as it curves left behind the goalposts on to the path behind the football stadium. Continue straight on past the stadium along the top edge of the rugby pitches to reach a chipped path snaking through the woods. TURN LEFT at the end onto a wide tarmac path which drops down into Alkincoats Park. Go straight on at the crossroads to the top of the Bandstand steps taking either the left or right curved path around the edge (DO NOT use the steps). Follow the wide path to the tennis courts (Cowbell Corner) then TURN LEFT up the road with the speed bumps. KEEP LEFT at the metal gate staying on the diagonal tarmac path to the crossroads and here TURN RIGHT up the hill. Take the narrow tarmac path RIGHT over the hump and straight along the bottom edge of the rugby pitch to the pavilion. Once past the pavilion cross the road (TAKE CARE) and TURN RIGHT to run another lap and finish at the end of the field before the pavilion.


Holt House pavilion is open every Saturday morning for post run refreshments. Hot and cold drinks along with biscuits and other nibbles are available for a small donation. There are toilets available in the pavilion including a disabled toilet.
