Lancashire runners are gearing up for this November’s annual Wesham 10k road race.

Kicking off on 27 November, the Wesham 10k is one of the North West’s oldest 10k road races and follows lanes in Salwick and Lea Town.

This year’s race will see all runners receiving a Lancashire Day cheese and event t-shirt.

A total of 154 runners completed the first race in 1986, and the event has grown ever since, attracting a large field of runners. It has sold out before race day each year since 2016 and is becoming one of the most popular races in the North West.

The race has proven so popular that organisers now hold a second event in the summer, the Wesham Summer 10K.

The first three male and female finishers will receive prizes. The organisers are awarding prizes to the first junior male and female. They will also award prizes in the masters’ categories, from M40 to M80+ for men and W35 to W70+ for women.
