ASDA Foundation Burnley 10K

Our Asda Foundation Burnley 10K is one of the region's best-loved events, attracting around 2,000 runners each summer. 

Small in size, but not in spirit, what feels like the whole town turns out to support runners in this fantastic 10K challenge. 

Now in its fourth year, Burnley runners will be taking a new turn in 2016 with the announcement of a new course!

My Journey...
Lee Cunliffe

Former RAF dog handler Lee took part in the Asda Foundation Pennine Lancashire 10K in aid of a charity that has supported him through some of the most difficult times of his life. Lee, 38, of Burnley, ran to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund, which provided accommodation for him and his three young children following the death of his wife, Tracy, who was just 33 when she lost her battle with skin cancer in 2006. The fund also helped meet the funeral costs. Lee was first helped by the fund in 2001 when he and Tracy suffered the loss of their daughter, who was stillborn. The help given by the fund has helped Lee rebuild his life since leaving the RAF in 2007.
