A Blackburn charity is on the lookout for 30 runners to join the new ‘Rovers Runners’ group.

Next month hundreds of runners will line up at Ewood Park to take part in the Blackburn 10k.

This year’s run will be the fourth time Blackburn Rovers Community Trust has hosted the event alongside race provider Run Through.

Ahead of the race, on Sunday 3 December, Blackburn Rovers Community Trust want to offer runners of all abilities the chance to represent their football club as an official Blackburn Rovers.

To be a Rovers Runner, you will be asked to help raise money to support a new Community Wellbeing Hub at Ewood Park. 

As Rovers Runner you will get free race entry a Rovers Runner branded vest, a Race medal, a tour of Ewood Park and a special prize for the person who raised most money for the Hub.

The stadium tour and special prize is subject to minimum £100 threshold being raised.

BRCT opened the Wellbeing Hub in September and it further increased the commitment and support the official charity of Blackburn Rovers Football Club offers to the local community as part of the organisation’s strategy to improve people’s mental and physical well-being. 

The Blackburn 10k is one of the most popular runs in Lancashire and takes people past a number of iconic landmarks including Wainwright Bridge, Blackburn Cathedral and King George’s Hall.
