It is with huge disappointment that we have made the decision to cancel the Chorley 10K and Chorley Family Run for 2020, which was due to take place on Sunday 30 August.

We like many participants had hoped to see the second Chorley 10K take place but felt that the safety and health of all our runners, volunteers, spectators and staff was the most important factor and the right thing to do was to cancel the event.

If you’re registered to run, you will receive an email from us containing information about your place.
If you haven’t received this email then please let us know by emailing

We would like to thank all participants for supporting the event and we hope that you will be back to take part in 2021 (information below). We would also like to place our thanks to Fylde Coast Runners for their efforts and support for the race.


We do also have some exciting news to give everyone something to look forward to. Next year’s race will take place on Sunday 9 May 2021, but we can now also announce that we will be adding a new race to the day with the first Chorley Half Marathon. Entry details will be announced soon so we encourage everyone to keep their eye on this page and on social media for further details.
