The 5k dash, run over a quick course from under the railway arches opposite the Continental pub, returned as a group event after Covid-19 restrictions last December forced it to go virtual.

This year’s dash – the eighth – was in partnership with the Central Lancs Running & Triathlon Club (CLAN). Official dash starter was Louise Harlow, who along with late husband Ben Ashworth, founded the event.
