Welcome to the Bury 10K – brand new for 2016!
Set to hit the streets on Sunday 18th September, our newest event is set to be popular with people of all abilities.
The latest event in the Asda Foundation Series, the Bury 10K is being staged in partnership with the Bury-based I Will If You Will (IWIYW) fitness movement, which is delivered by Bury Council with Lottery funds from Sport England.
Full details of the route will be revealed soon, but the course is set to be flat, and suitable for all ages and abilities from beginners just starting out on their fitness journey to experienced fast runners looking for a personal best.
Teams in each of the challenges must have a minimum of four members (there is no upper limit) and there are three categories – open, mixed and female.
In the open and female categories, the average time of the first four team members home will be used to calculate the winners, while the times of the first two men and first two women will count in the mixed category.
The event is chip timed and there are goody bags, medals and finishers’ T-shirts for all those taking part.
The price of an entry in the Team Challenge is the same price as the event's general entry price.

A great way for friends and colleagues to get together to tackle the event, the team challenge brought an added dimension to the Asda Foundation Bury 10K which attracted over 1,500 entrants to the event.
The challenge was chip-timed and, along with prizes for the winners, there were goody bags, medals and finishers’ t-shirts for all those taking part.
Team challenges are a super way to foster team spirit and raise money for good causes. If you are inspired to get together with friends and take on a charity run, check out the team challenges which are a feature of all the Run For All events (except the Marathon and 10 mile events).
