Blackpool Night Run is back! The new event saw thousands of runners take their mark for a 7.5km charity dash down the prom when it launched in 2019.
Blackpool Night Run Returns!
Wednesday 30 August 2023 from 8.30pm to 11pm
Since launching in 2019 this event has raised over £160,000 for the Bispham charity. Blackpool Night Run is free to enter thanks to sponsorship by The Kentown Wizard Foundation.
Join thousands of people and run, jog or skip along the 7.5 km route under the famous Blackpool Illuminations on a traffic-free promenade. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a sneak peek of the Lights before the official switch-on.
This is a fully-marshalled, traffic-free running event. The route is also flat, making it ideal for all abilities aged 8+
- Every runner will receive a FREE t-shirt and official Blackpool Night Run medal.
- This event is FREE to enter but each Night Runner is asked to raise a minimum of £30 in sponsorship (JustGiving is recommended) or make a one-off donation.
- Places for Blackpool Night Run are limited. So you’re encouraged to book quickly to avoid disappointment.
Running for Brian House
The run is organised by Brian House Children’s Hospice, and raises vital funds so the charity can care for the most fragile children on the Fylde coast.
Brian House supports children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. By taking part in Blackpool Night Run, you’ll be helping to shout about it by wearing the Brian House colours as you dash under the Blackpool Illuminations.
Night Run remains a free-to-enter event. But every single penny raised in sponsorship or donated by those taking part goes straight to our amazing children’s hospice. We’re caring for our area’s most fragile children and creating full lives, however short.
