Now in its sixth year, the Burnley 10K race begins and finishes in Towneley Park, outside Towneley Hall in Burnley, on Sunday July 15th.

Bowker Blackburn managing director Chris Eccles, who is also taking part, said: “Everyone in the management team decided to enter together. We work hard. So we wanted an opportunity to team build and de-stress a little!

“We have a good mix of enthusiasts and novices. And what we lack in ability we make up for in spirit! We’re organising joint training events and encouraging each other with some healthy online banter. It’s a great event and we can’t wait to get started on the day.”

Bowker Motor Group has enlisted the help of Jamie Kennedy at Burnley-based Fitness Experience with some assistance with training and nutrition. All the competitors will be monitored using a digital smartphone app and offered tailored advice in the build up to the race.

Chris added: “We’ll take any help we can get! Many of our staff live in Burnley so it means a lot to support a local community event. We just hope we do everyone proud.”

Earlier this year Bowker Motor Group became official vehicle supplier of Burnley FC in the Community (BFCitC); sourcing a fleet of four vehicles. Bowker Motor Group also sponsored the charity’s annual fundraising dinner in April.
