We are delighted to announce that we will be sponsoring the upcoming Accrington 10k. The event which has been running (if you’ll pardon the pun) for over 30 years now, will take place on Sunday the 29th of October.

The race will start at 10am on Altham Industrial Estate before beginning a circular route heading up Burnley Road, Altham for the first two miles.

This is a massively popular race amongst locals in and around the Accrington and Hyndburn area, with a wide variety of rural and urban roads for those taking part, and a lovely 1.5-mile grandstand descent to the finish line.

Whether you’re racing to hit your personal best, or jogging for your leisure, this race is for everyone. There will even be a junior race on the day, for anyone up to the age of 15 to compete in.

After the race everyone is invited to The Walton Arms pub to have a well-deserved drink and some food. At the pub there will be a raffle alongside prizes for the winners of the 10k race.

Nick Molyneux, Partner and Head of Farleys’ Accrington office commented,

We’re proud to work with the Accrington Road Runners in sponsoring the 10k race again this year. We’ve sponsored the event for a number of years now and often have some of our own participating. It’s historically a great event that brings the local community together and with Farleys having being part of the Accrington community for more than 30 years too, it is our pleasure to be involved once again.

Whether you’re taking part in the 10K or would just like to spectate and show your support for the runners, we look forward to seeing you there.
