Blackburn 10K - November routes

Calling all football fans to this epic 10k race that starts and ends inside Ewood Park, home of Blackburn Rovers FC.

Runners will head out of the stadium and head towards Blackburn town centre. From there, they will complete the loop before entering the final stretch inside the stadium. Runners will be cheered on through the finish line in front of the RFS Riverside Stand and will be greeted by music, food and entertainment in a buzzing event village. This is an event not to be missed.

This course is run on closed roads and is generally considered fast and flat, so is a perfect venue to capture that personal best.

    Did the 10K in 2019

    Really well organised - especially for a 'first'. Only criticism is the finish - for those of us who run more slowly, earlier finishers were on the course, making it difficult to finish - better if we could have run straight into the front of the staium, not round the back. Also thanks to local cafes/sandwich shops who were handing out water - greatly appreciated.

    Suggest more publicity to encourage more crowds to support the runners.
    Also encourage more gun runners for charity.
