World famous Accrington runner Ron Hill will lead hundreds onto Hyndburn's roads as he puts his name to a brand new 10K event in the borough.
Ron Hill MBE - world record holder, Olympian, clothing entrepreneur and Freeman of the Borough - is encouraging Hyndburn residents to shape up for 2014 by signing up to the Ron Hill Accrington 10K run set to take place on Sunday, 30 March.
Setting off from Accrington Town Hall at 10.30am, the event will see runners venture up Manchester Road to Baxenden before looping back down the tree-lined, former railway track 'greenway', finishing back in the town centre.
The Ron Hill Accrington 10K is open to anyone over the age of 18 with prizes available for the first three runners home in the categories of male, female and veterans. It costs £8 for affiliated running club members to register, £10 for unaffiliated members or £12 on the day.
Proceeds from the event will be split between East Lancashire Hospice, Finley's Disney Dream and Derian House Children's Hospice.
