This is a Handicap Race of 2.2 miles on the road with slower runners being given a start by faster runners,the idea is that everyone finishes together. The reason for the strange distance is the race used to be run along Chorley New Road from the Mechanics Institute to the Behive Pub and back but due to increased traffic over the years this has now been moved for safety reasons. Guest runners are allowed to compete but cannot take the Cup. The race now takes place on Georges lane in Horwich.
