Leigh Community 10K

  • August 2, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

It is with huge regret that we must announce the cancellation of the Leigh Community 10K this year. The Covid 19 pandemic has meant it is impossible to stage the event safely this year.

This was a difficult decision to make as it brings in thousands of pounds for Wigan and Leigh Hospice and was growing in popularity.

We were keen to see that grow even further this year and were hoping that we could hold the event in some way. However, it is clear that we cannot hold the event in a way which guarantees social distancing and doesn’t impact upon the NHS.

We know this is disappointing but we hope you will join us on August 1st 2021 for the next Leigh Community 10K.

All those who have already signed up have been contacted.

Anyone who has already signed up will have their participation fee rolled over to next year.

We know that many people will have been in training and so you can walk or run a virtual 10K by signing up online at www.fyldecoastrunners.com/leigh-10k.html at a cost of £10.

You can run or walk the actual route, or a route closer to home at a time and date to suit you. In return, we will add your details to the event leaderboard and send all those taking part a medal.

The Leigh 10K is organised by Wigan and Leigh Hospice, Wigan, Inspiring healthy lifestyles, Leigh Harriers, Nectar Creative, Rotary Club of Leigh, Fylde Coast Runners, Time2Run Events & Wigan Council.
