The fun, friendly event is one of the region’s best-loved charity runs. It attracts a range of people from new runners taking on their first race to more experienced runners aiming for a new personal best.

The course is also perfect for those looking to take things at a more leisurely pace, having fun with friends and family while raising money for charity.

The route starts and finishes outside Towneley Hall, and takes in the Thompson and Queen’s parks, as well as skirting Turf Moor, the home of Burnley Football Club. Whether you choose to walk, jog or run you can be sure of support from enthusiastic crowds as you make your way round the course.
