Organisers Sports Tours International, who also run the Manchester and Salford 10km runs, saved the race from folding earlier this year, renaming it the ‘City of Preston 10k’ with a logo including the Preston lamb and flag.

And the company have kindly given six Lancashire Post readers a chance to enter the race for free.

Kevin Harmer from Sports Tours International said: "Sports Tours International are delighted to be bringing the race back to the city later in 2018 and the feedback from everyone we speak to is very positive.
