Course information

The Blackburn 10k course is a double lap route mostly on flat grass with the occasional slight incline. The route starts and finishes on the field near the play area and takes a full lap around the park, and involves crossing Tower Road which will be managed by stewards for participant and public safety. Due to the course being on grass, it may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions.

Please arrive 15 to 20minis before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time

Parking

The event site is on grass and is a 3 minute walk from the nearest car park (venue car park).

The course is predominantly on grass which can become boggy in wet conditions with some sections using pre-existing paths. We would advise that this event is wheelchair accessible but with assistance. The course is mainly flat but there are sections of the course that are slightly uphill. It also narrows in some sections due to access gates and the two way traffic of participants.
