The Blackburn route follows a scenic, circular route around the park and the terrain is mainly grass. This popular evening race offers an amazing atmosphere as spectators line the final section of the route to cheer participants back in.
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 meeting point is on the Showfield at Witton Country Park.
Parking is available at Witton Country Park car park. There is a small fee of 50p for 2 hours, this is pay and display. There is other parking for Race for Life, please follow the signage to the car park on the day.
A regular bus service is available from Blackburn town centre to Witton Park: the number 152 on the Burnley-Blackburn-Preston route and the number 118 on the Blackburn – Leyland route.

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.
