Put your best foot forward for this year’s Burnley 10k run

Release date: 
Tuesday, 15 May, 2018

Runners of all ages and abilities are being encouraged to sign up for this year’s Burnley 10k.

The countdown is on for the big event which will be held on Sunday 15th July, beginning and ending in the historic splendour of Towneley Hall and park.

The event is open to anyone of any ability, from occasional joggers to seasoned racers, and everyone in between. You can even take part if you’ve never run any distance before.

The run has become more and more popular over the years and thousands of runners are expected to take part.

The picturesque route takes runners past Turf Moor, home of Burnley FC, and through Thompson Park, before skirting Rowley Forest Park and Queen’s Park before returning to Towneley.

This is one of the town’s biggest fundraising events of the year, where runners are welcome to run for fun, for their own charitable cause or one of this year’s amazing partner charities.

The 2018 Burnley 10k partner charities include: Burnley Leisure Trust, Macmillan Cancer Support, Jane Tomlinson Appeal, Pendleside Hospice, Every Action Has Consequences, and Burnley FC in the Community.

The race forms as part of Run For All’s hugely popular Asda Foundation 10K Series, which also includes runs in Leeds, York, Hull, Lincoln, Nottingham, King’s Lynn, Leicester, Bury and Sheffield.

Run For All continues to provide fundraising running events across the UK as part of Jane Tomlinson’s lasting legacy.

Jane Tomlinson CBE raised £1.85m for children’s and cancer charities before her untimely death from cancer aged just 43 in 2007.

Her family continue to raise funds in her name, and the Jane Tomlinson Appeal has to date raised over £10m.

Run For All events could not exist without the great support of the sponsors. This year’s Burnley 10K will be supported by the Asda Foundation, Motorpoint, 2BR, Burnley Express, Burnley Council, Aftershokz, Up & Running, Calico Group, Arla Protein, Urbaser Ltd and Runderwear.

The route map is available to download on the Run For All website.

Councillor John Harbour, Burnley Council’s executive member for housing and leisure, said: “Year after year the Burnley 10k proves to be a brilliant day out, whether you’re taking part or simply watching and supporting the runners as they make their way around the course.

“There are still places left, so I’d like to urge anyone who has been thinking about it to commit and take on the challenge today.”
