Join In With The Chorley 10k & Family Run

The Chorley 10K and Family Run were initially planned for 9th May 2021 however due to the covid restrictions, this was moved to Sunday 29th August 2021. It’ll be great to see so many runners once again going through Chorley and Astley Park.


Chorley 10K:

  • Minimum Age: 15 years old on Sunday 29th August 2021

  • Start Time: 10:30AM

  • All entrants will receive a medal

The Chorley 10K route is a two lap course, which starts and finishes on Market Street in Chorley town centre. From the start line, participants will travel up Market Street, turning left onto St Thomas’s Road, travelling along Southport Road before turning right at Ackhurst Lodge to enter Astley Park.


Participants will then follow the path, running in front of Astley Coach House and the historic Astley Hall. They will run over the lake bridge, past the playing fields and play areas, running towards Astley Park’s main gates. At the gates, participants will turn left onto Park Road and will run up to the junction with the A6 Preston Road where they’ll turn and travel back down Park Road, on the opposite side of the road. They will then run past Chorley Town Hall, turn right onto St Thomas’s Road and repeat the course. On the second lap runners will continue down Market Street and through the finish line.


Chorley Family Run:

  • Minimum Age: 4 years old on Sunday 29th August 2021

  • Start Time: 9:30AM

  • All entrants will receive a medal

The Chorley Family Run is a much shorter 2K course, which will start and finish on Market Street in Chorley town centre. From the start line, participants will travel up Market Street, continuing past Chorley town hall onto Park Road. They will then turn left at the main gates to Astley Park and enter the park. Participants will then follow the path, running towards the play areas and pavilion. They will travel past the play areas and playing fields to a marker just before the lake. At this point, participants will turn and travel back along the same route through Astley Park. At the main gates they will travel across the closed road and turn right onto Park Road, continuing straight ahead onto Market Street where the finish line awaits.


Please note this is not a flat route and there are some inclines, particularly in Astley Park.


It is planned that in 2022 a Half Marathon will take place in Chorley. This was originally scheduled for 2021.
