Burnley 10K


When: 15 July 2018

Where: Burnley

About: The Asda Foundation Burnley 10K is now in its sixth year and is one of the region's best-loved events, attracting around 2,000 runners each summer. Small in size, but not in spirit, what feels like the whole town turns out to support runners in the fantastic Burnley 10K. 

It starts and finishes in Towneley Park, in the shadow of the majestic Towneley Hall, the jewel in Burnley’s historic crown.

Runners have a flat and fast start and running along the bottom of the Park’s Events Triangle. It then follows a tree-lined causeway out of the park for a long downhill section and levels out to cross Harry Potts Way at Turf Moor, and then on to the fire station before turning left into Thompson Park.

You will then leave Thompson Park taking in further parkland and then down the flat and triumphant return to Towneley Park.

Registration fee: £20
Minimum Sponsorship: £100
