Runners at the ready – it’s Leigh’s THIRD 10K

Registration is now open for the third Leigh Community 10K.

Last year’s race saw 750 people of all ages and abilities taking part raising funds for chosen charity, Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

This year, organisers are aiming for 1,000 runners. Inspiring healthy lifestyles, FCR Events Ltd, Leigh Harriers, Nectar Creative, Rotary Club of Leigh, Time2Run Events, Wigan and Leigh Hospice and Wigan Council are all working together once again to put on the event with the support of Leigh MP, Jo Platt.

The Leigh Community 10K takes place on Sunday 11 August in Leigh town centre.

All runners, joggers and walkers of any ability can join in the second Leigh Community 10K as long as you are over 15 years of age on the day of the event.

Standard entry fee is £17 or £15 if you run for a UK Athletics/ARC Running Club.

You can register for a place in the race at leigh10k.co.uk.

You can also make a direct donation to Wigan and Leigh Hospice when you register or raise money for a charity of your choice.

Wigan and Leigh Hospice currently cares for more than 1,100 local people with incurable life-limiting illnesses every year. It also cares for those people who are important to patients through bereavement support, counselling and complementary therapy.
