Register and find out more here:

The Half Marathon, 5k and Family routes will all start and finish on Market Street in Wigan town centre.

Prizes will be awarded for the first, second and third male and female runners, as well as the winners of a number of other categories, and there will be an awards ceremony for the winners held on the day on the main stage in the town centre around 11.30am (subject to change).

There will also be live entertainment on stage from some fantastic local bands, and the continental food markets will be in town, so we’d encourage all runners and spectators to remain in the town centre after the run to make the most of the unique atmosphere.

All Half Marathon runners will receive a free finishers’ goody bag, T-shirt and a medal. All 5k runners will receive a medal and refreshments and all runners who have registered for the Family Mile and have a runner numbers will receive a Joining Jack medal. Entry is free to adults running with a registered runner aged 10 and under.

Shower facilities are available for runners in the Wigan Life Centre after the event, although please be aware that you will need to bring swimwear to use these. There will also be a baggage area for all runners to safely leave their belongings in Wigan Life Centre (South Site).

Booking for this event has now closed.
