Get a move on and register for the Chorley 10K or Family Run

Time is running out to book your place for the Chorley 10k in May.

With around 1500 competitors at last year’s event and even more spectators visiting the town centre, this popular annual event, organised by Chorley Council supported by Fylde Coast Runners, welcomes runner of all abilities.

Starting and finishing in Chorley town centre, with the route taking runners through the beautiful Astley Park, the Chorley 10K is a chip-timed, marshalled race with entrants receiving a unique medal and a locally sourced Chorley Cake at the finish line.

Entrants to the 2K Family Run will also receive a medal when they complete the race, and Reeds Refillery has also kindly donated a snack bag of banana chips to be enjoyed by all entrants.

Chorley 10K & 2K Family Run 2024 medal holders are also in for a treat from some local businesses offering medal holder perks which can be viewed at

Chris Sinnott, Chief Executive of Chorley Council said: "We can’t wait to see everyone crossing the finish line to receive their medals, so if you’re a regular runner, a fun runner or just want to give it a go, get signed up for this fantastic event.

“The event always creates a great atmosphere in the town centre, so even if you’re not competing, why not come and support the competitors, there’ll be plenty to enjoy!”

As part of the event, alongside the races, there’ll also be the fabulous run village on Fazakerley Street, full of organisations offering information and activities, face painting for children (fee applies), plus entertainment at 1498 at Chorley’s covered market.

The 2K Family Run (minimum age 4 years) starts first at 9:30am with a fee of £6.50 per entrant. The 10K race (minimum age 15 years) starts at 10:30 am with an entry fee of £25, or £23 if a UKA Club Runner.
