Race Day

Runners should arrive in plenty of time to allow for parking and registration. When you've got your runner number pin your number on your front without folding or covering it - it needs to be seen by the race marshals.

The route to the start point is clearly marked. Line up behind the start line. There will be a few short safety announcements and then the race will start at 9.30am sharp. The route is open to the public but is closed to traffic. We advise that you do not wear iPods or similar devices whilst running for safety reasons.

Water Station & Course Aid

A water station will be located at halfway (5k) on the route. Medics will be available throughout the course on bikes and at the finish.

Slower Runners & Walking

You are welcome to jog or walk the route. If you decide to do this please move as far to the left hand side as possible to allow runners to overtake you.

Prizes

 This 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.
