Littleborough 10k FAQ

When do I get my race number? 
Race numbers and timing chips are to be collected by each runner from Littleborough Conservative Club before 09:40 on race day.

Can I enter on the day? 
Yes, entry will be accepted on race day between 08:30 and 09:40 providing the race hasn’t sold out.

What time do I need to arrive on race day? 
You should aim to arrive no later than 09:30 to give you time to register and warm up. Arriving late will only add to the pre race nerves!

Can I park anywhere? 
You can park on street or in the carpark in the town centre but please pay where needed. You must park legally, safely and responsibly, we want to keep our good relationship with the people of Littleborough!

Where do the races start?

Is there anywhere to leave my kit? 
You can leave kit in the Conservative Club but this will be at your own risk.

Is there a minimum age to participate?
Yes, you have to be over 15 to participate.

How can I receive a club discount?
Contact us on jacek[at] to get a discount code. Please note that there is a minimum of 10 runners expected in order for the discount to be maintained, should this condition not be met we may ask the runners to pay back the discounted monies.

 I like to run with headphones, can I race with them? 
On 1st April 2016 UK:Athletics banned the use of headphones in all road races with any length of open single carriage roads and in any race in which the race directors have identified hazards. We have taken the decision to ban headphones of any type from all races. We believe athletes need to be able to hear instructions and warnings from marshals, other athletes and members of the public. Any athlete ignoring this rule will be disqualified and removed from the results with no refund.

When will results be published?
Provisional results will be online usually within seconds of the runners crossing the line (via our “live timing”), where a mobile phone signal is present. Please note these results are provisional and will not be sent to 3rd party websites until the relevant checks have been made.
