Can I fundraise for a charity that is not Trinity?

Yes, the Beaverbrooks 10k Fun Run is the only event organised by Trinity Hospice that participants can raise funds for a charity of their choice. Honouring the history of Blackpool's most-popular 10k Fun Run. With the fee only covering the cost of the event, many participants make a one off donation to Trinity when they sign-up.

Can I take part in Blackpool's Fun Run if I am not from the area?

Absolutely, over the years many runners have travelled from across the country to take part in Blackpool Beaverbrooks 10k Fun Run. Blackpool has many hotels close to the event starting/finishing point that accommodate groups and individuals. We also accept sign-ups on the morning of the event, but please ensure you get there early.
