The towns festival of racing is planned to take place in Horwich and the event which is normally a one day event taking place on the Sunday is hoping to expand to perhaps four day event next year.
Organisers announced their plans at a Horwich Town Planning meeting early in September.
The festival began in 1980's and over the past 10 years over 10,000 people have had the opportunity to take part in the event.
Next year represents a special Anniversary and the festival which involves cycling and running attracts a real mix of both professional elite athletes right down to toddlers could be bigger and better than ever.
The festival will take place from June 14th to 17th and incorporate Two Lads Fell Race on the Thursday and a junior triathlon at Horwich Leisure Centre and Old Station Park.
The event is expected to cost around £15,000 to stage with the main costs being for road closures, signage and marshals.
