Welcome to the official home of the Bolton 10K – one of the largest and longest established 10km running events in the North West of England. Hosted by Bolton United Harriers & Athletic Club, it attracts a good mix of Club-class competitors whilst also being suitable for social runners, beginners and charity fundraisers.
The challenging course incorporates the undulating roads around and within Leverhulme Park. Re-designed for 2012’s event and offering a Grandstand start AND finish, it proved a hit with runners and spectators alike…ask any of the 800 runners who actually got a spot last year!
All Bolton 10K finishers will receive an exclusive TECH T-SHIRT, with various other spot prizes and goodies distributed at the end. An extensive programme of trophies and prizes are available to winning positions in the main (open age) race and age categories, which are gender specific. A CASH PRIZE is also available to the winning man and/or woman if they set a new course record.
The course has been accurately measured to 10 kilometres (6.21 miles), and the use of CHIP TIMING allows accurate results for all runners, though finishing positions are decided on gun-time. A free, personalised SMS text message of your result will also be sent to your mobile phone.
