Runners are gearing up for the second Ron Hill 10k this weekend.
More than 500 people are set to take part in the charity race and will be joined by the Olympic legend himself.
There will also be a 1km family fun run for aged nine and over.
The race will start outside the Accrington Town Hall before going along Eastgate, Abbey Street and Manchester Road towards Baxenden.
It will then go along Back Lane towards Rising Bridge before turning back and going off road through the countryside back to Accrington paralleling Manchester Road.
Former Springhill and Accrington Grammar School pupil Ron said he is ‘really looking forward’ to taking part.
He said: “I hope the weather will be kind and there will be lots of people taking part as it raises money for good causes.
"Last year there were so many people wanting to speak to me that I didn’t properly warm up so I will have to get there earlier this time.
“It’s a tough course but everybody will enjoy it.”
The race will be held on Sunday, March 29 starting at 10.30am and the 1km family fun run will start at 10am.
Entry for the 10k is open to anyone over 15 of any ability and costs £14 for club runners and £16 for non-club runners.
Entries may be available on the day but will cost £2 more. The 1km run costs £3.
Prizes are available for the first three male and lady winners and for six 'veteran' categories.
All runners will receive a commemorative t-shirt at the finish line along with drinks and snacks.
Parking will be available in the town centre and toilets will also be available at the registration area and adjacent to the Town Hall near the start line.
