Entries & Registration

We look forward to seeing you on the starting line.
If you're not running, you can still come down to cheer on the competitors and enjoy the running village on Fazakerley Street.



Chorley 10K Race

The Chorley 10K route is a two lap course, which will start and finish on Market Street in Chorley town centre. From the start line, participants will travel up Market Street, turning left onto St Thomas's Road, travelling along Southport Road before turning right at Ackhurst Lodge to enter Astley Park.

Participants will then follow the path, running in front of Astley Coach House and the historic Astley Hall. They will then run over the lake bridge, past the playing fields and play areas, running towards Astley Park's main gates. At the gates, participants will turn left onto Park Road and will run up to the junction with the A6 Preston Road where they will turn and travel back down Park Road, on the opposite side of the road. They will then run past Chorley town hall, turn right onto St Thomas's Road and repeat the course. On the second lap runners will continue down Market Street and through the finish line. Running prams are welcome.

Chorley 2K Family Run

The Chorley Family Run is a much shorter 2K course, which will start and finish on Market Street in Chorley town centre. From the start line, participants will travel up Market Street, continuing past Chorley town hall onto Park Road. They will then turn left at the main gates to Astley Park and enter the park. Participants will then follow the path, running towards the play areas and pavilion. They will travel past the play areas and playing fields to a marker just before the lake. At this point, participants will turn and travel back along the same route through Astley Park. At the main gates they will travel across the closed road and turn right onto Park Road, continuing straight ahead onto Market Street where the finish line awaits.
