Event Description

LIMITED ON THE DAY ENTRIES AVAILABLE

 

The All New Accy 10K!

(inc Junior Race)

*All profits from this will go to East Lancashire Hospice*

 

In an exciting new development for 2017 - there will be a new route for the 2017 Accrington 10K! For the first time in its 31 year history, the race route is going to be amended, with the start & finish moved to Altham Business Park. Race HQ will now be at The Walton Arms (Burnley Road, BB5 5UL). 

By moving the start & finish to Altham Business Park it will improve parking tremendously, eliminate the need for the road closure of Burnley Road, and will increase safety.

This year’s race will include additional features such as accurately measured chip and timings.

This year will see our inaugural junior race. This will take place on Altham Industrial Estate from 09:15am. Watch out for further information coming soon.

The route itself will remain largely unchanged, but having over a 1 ½ mile of decent to towards the end should promise grandstand finishes from all runners. 

There is a car park, refreshments and a sports shop at the registration.
