Watching runners as they pass through either of the parks is an easy and popular way to get involved out on course.
Meeting up with your friends or family
The best place to meet runners before and after the race is in the event village, located in the car park of the Towneley Park changing pavilion.
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.
