The Blackpool route is set in the shadow of the iconic Blackpool Tower and takes you along the Lower Promenade, bringing you back along the Upper Promenade to the Festival Headland. An amazing atmosphere in a fabulous location
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.
The start line is next to the Comedy Carpet on the Festival Headland.
There is no parking at the event so please use local car parks.
There are a number of local bus and tram services which run along The Promenade and stop at the venue. You can find out details of times and numbers online at: http://www.blackpooltransport.com/
The course is mainly flat, except for one section which is very steep. However there is an alternative route for wheelchair users, and our marshals will be on hand to assist.
Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell. They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course!
Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
