Wild Rumpus (producers of the award-winning Just So Festival) and Forestry Commission England join forces to present a brand new experience for families this spring: Art on the Run.

Combining our joint love of the arts, woodlands and exercising outdoors Art on the Run is a ridiculous run like no other – a 5k dash through the most beautiful landscape encountering surprising and fantastical large-scale art installations …. expect the unexpected to help you on your way.

Race, run, scamper, chase, sprint, scurry, bound, dart, canter, gallop, jog, scuttle, trot or walk. Cross the finish line and join some footstomping musicians. Art on the Run is a new wondrous woodland experience and perfectly curious April Fool run. A limited amount of tickets are on sale now.

Art on the Run is the first event of this scale at the newly regenerated LIVIA Forest which spans Salford and Bury councils and is part of the City Forest Park an initiative by City of Trees and the Forestry Commission to create a huge public park in Greater Manchester bigger than New York’s Central Park. Lots of trees have been planted across the site in recent years to provide a haven for wildlife and an expanse of woodland for local communities to enjoy. LIVIA is part of the Irwell Sculpture Trail and made up of many community woodlands and nature reserves linking Clifton Country Park and Drinkwater Park.

LIVIA is situated approximately 4 miles from the outskirts of Manchester and close to junction 17 M60.

By Road: Please follow postcode M45 7JZ and stewards will direct you to the car park.

By Bus: You can access the site via bus from Bury New Road (97 or 98 bus, Tesco stop) or Rainsough Brow (484 bus, Agecroft Bridge stop).

By Rail: Prestwich Rail/Metrolink station is under a mile away.
