The fourth Wigan 10k road race, which took place on the 4th of September 2016, saw more than 3,600 runners registering to take part – a new record surpassing our previous best total of 3,450 in 2015.
On the back of this success we are pleased to announce that the fifth Halliwell Jones Wigan 10k will be back in 2017.
All runners will be allocated a race number and individual timing chip. We will start sending out race packs and numbers from July 2017. You will receive an email from us informing you when to expect these, or when they are available for collection. Please follow us on Facebook or Twitter too, to keep up to date with any event news.
The event's chosen charity is Joining Jack, which is one of Wigan 10k's Supporting Partners.
If you have decided to order a T-shirt during registration this will be despatched no later than two weeks before the race date to the address provided. If you order less than three weeks before the race, we cannot guarantee deliver before race day.
The 10k route starts and finishes on Market Street in Wigan town centre.
Prizes will be awarded for the first, second and third male and female runners, as well as the winners of a number of other categories, and there will be an awards ceremony for the winners held on the day on the main stage in the town centre.
There will also be live entertainment on stage, and the continental food markets will be in town, so we’d encourage all runners and spectators to remain in the town centre after the run to make the most of the atmosphere.
All runners will receive a free finishers goody bag and medal. Shower facilities are available for runners in the Wigan Life Centre after the event, although please be aware that you will need to bring swimwear to use these. There will also be a baggage area for all runners to safely leave their belongings in Wigan Life Centre (South Site).
