Chorley 10K set to return to Chorley town centre
3 February 2023
Lace up those running shoes as the fourth Chorley 10k and 2K Family Race will return to Chorley on Sunday 7 May 2023.
Registration is now open for the event which is organised by Chorley Council in conjunction with Fylde Coast Runners.
Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, Councillor Peter Wilson said "This popular event has something for everyone. It's great to see regular runners compete for their personal best, but also those having a go at something new, having fun with family and friends. There's even a 2K run that children and families can get involved with.
"Plus, if running is not your thing, you can still come down, cheer the runners on, visit the run village and enjoy the atmosphere - it promises to be a great day."
The Chorley 10K is a chip-timed race, with a two-lap course, starting at 10:30 am, with minimum entry age being 15 years. Entry fee is £22, or £20 if a UKA Club Runner.
Runners must be aged 4 years and over to enter the 2K Family Run which starts at 9.30am. Entry fee for the 2K run is £6.50.
Both races start and finish on Market Street with the route taking runners through the picturesque Astley Park, with people urged to line the route to cheer on the runners.
Competitors can run just for fun or to raise money for their chosen charity should they wish.
There'll also be the running village on Fazakerley Street with running and fitness related businesses and groups offering advice and activities. Plus, there'll be face painting for the children.
