Leigh Community 10K

Leigh Community 10K

Event date: 13 August 2017

The first ever Leigh Community 10K has been officially launched with people from across the region encouraged to lace up their running shoes all in the name of charity.

Friends vow to 'Run2Gether' for Wigan and Leigh Hospice

The race, which will take in three laps of a course through Leigh town centre, will be held on Sunday, 13th August 2017.


Participants can sign up now at leigh10k.co.uk with entry fees helping to raise money for Wigan and Leigh Hospice as the partner charity. You can also choose ro taise sponsorship money for the hospice and will be sent a sponsorship pack.

The exciting event has been organised through a partnership between Inspiring healthy lifestyles, FCR Events Ltd., Leigh Harriers, Nectar Creative, Wigan and Leigh Hospice and Wigan Council, with support from former MP for Leigh, Andy Burnham.

He said: "It's fantastic news that we'll be having our very own 10k here in Leigh. The popularity of the Wigan 10K has made a very positive impact on the borough, and I believe that bringing a 10k race to Leigh can do the same.

"Last year a fellow runner at the Wigan 10K told me how great it would be to have our own race in Leigh, I thought that was an excellent idea and that vision has now become a reality.

There will be live music and entertainment on the day with further details to be announced soon.

You can register for a place in the first ever Leigh Community 10K race at leigh10k.co.uk, with further information and sponsorship forms available on the website at a later date.

If you sign up to run for the Hospice you will receive a wrist band, blank number & our sponsor forms.

All funds raised will go towards our ongoing Counting on Care appeal to raise £50,000 towards the modernisation of our Inpatient Unit.
