Flash in the Park 10k

Start: 10:30
Date: 19th June 2022

Flash in the Park is a 10k trail race held in the scenic Pennington Flash Country Park. The course is a mix of gravel paths, grass and path. 

We aim to stage an inclusive event for all runners, with chip-timing, a fun run and a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

The park address is St Helen’s Road, Leigh, WN7 3PA. Pennington Flash is a great countryside location, but is still easily accessible by road and there will be ample parking available.

The course is suitable for all runners, whether you are an experienced runner or a beginner. If there has been wet weather, the course may be muddy or slippy, the course is suited to trail, hybrid or normal running shoes.

The cost of the race is £21 for non-affiliated runners and £19 for UKA affiliated runners.


.Entries will be open on Monday 21st March 2022 and you will be able to enter via this link.

DOUBLE ENTRIES: We have a limited number of "Flashing Double" bundles available. You can enter both Flash in the Park and Festive Flash Five for £37 (£33 for UKA affiliated members) while stocks last. You can take advantage of this offer here.

The provisional route can be found here. Please note this is subject to change on or before the event for safety reasons.

There will be medals and goody bags for all finishers. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st three men and the 1st three women.

Fun Run

The fun run is a great way to get all of the family involved in the event. It starts at 09:30, is approximately 1 mile and is suitable for all members of the family. The cost of the fun run is to be confirmed and online entries will be available.

Our volunteers make our events! The runners appreciate friendly cheers of support along the course, and a "well done" at the end. 

We need volunteers to ensure Flash in the Park runs smoothly. Volunteer roles include marshalling, registration and runner welfare and is a great way to get involved without running. Please get in touch with us if you can help. Full training will be provided.
