Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, Councillor Peter Wilson said “We’re looking forward to welcoming competitors and visitors back to Chorley town centre for this fantastic event.

“The event grows in popularity every year and has something for everyone. Whether you’re a regular runner, a fun runner or want to be part of the atmosphere by cheering the competitors on, come and be part of the day.”
