The 2018 event will begin and finish in Towneley Park, in the shadow of the majestic Towneley Hall, the jewel in Burnley’s historic crown.
Runners have a flat and fast start and will run along the bottom of the Park’s Events Triangle before heading along Hall Road and turning right after the Stables Café. They’ll then follow the tree-lined causeway out of the park for a long downhill section along Todmorden Road.
The route then levels out to cross Harry Potts Way at Turf Moor, and follows Belvedere Road to the fire station before turning left into Thompson Park. The course follows the picturesque paths taking in the beautiful Boating Lake and Italian Gardens.
Runners leave Thompson Park at Queen Victoria Road then head up Queens Park Road, taking in further parkland then down Ormerod Road to meet Belvedere Road again and the flat and triumphant return to Towneley Park.
