The next Burnley 10k takes place on Sunday 17th June 2018
A massive well done to the 60 10k runners who once again sported the bright orange shirts of Burnley Leisure on Sunday 4th June 2017. Why not join us next year?
We were instrumental in bringing the Jane Tomlinson event to Burnley and are a proud partner of the Burnley 10K. The Jane Tomlinson Burnley 10k is one of the best-loved in the North West – for fun, a personal challenge or to raise funds for charity.
As a partner charity Burnley Leisure has charity places available for only £20.00 for runners wanting to take part in support of our many community projects, ranging from holiday programmes for local children, to community sport sessions tackling anti-social behaviour, and volunteer development, giving young people new skills and experience.
A new route was introduced for 2016 and proved hugely popular. Runners have a flat and fast start and will run along the bottom of the Park’s Events Triangle before heading along Hall Road and turning right after the Stables Café. They’ll then follow the tree-lined causeway out of the park for a long downhill section along Todmorden Road.
The route then levels out to cross Harry Potts Way at Turf Moor, and follows Belvedere Road to the fire station before turning left into Thompson Park. The course follows the picturesque paths taking in the beautiful Boating Lake and Italian Gardens.
Runners leave Thompson Park at Queen Victoria Road then head up Queens Park Road, taking in further parkland then down Ormerod Road to meet Belvedere Road again and the flat and triumphant return to Towneley Park.
