Tower Festival Headland
Our brand new fun run under the Illuminations!
This new exciting event for 2019 is the perfect opportunity to have a sneak peek before the official switch-on. Every runner will receive a t-shirt and official bespoke medal and what’s more, it’s completely free to enter!
Join us for a 7.5km fun run, suitable for all abilities, under the world famous bright lights of Blackpool on a traffic free promenade.
Yes you read that right! We are pleased to offer entry to our first ever Night Run completely free! That’s thanks to our incredible supporters at the Kentown Wizard Foundation, which has kindly sponsored this event.
We want to make sure everyone across the Fylde coast knows about our incredible dedicated children’s hospice, Brian House, which supports children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. You’ll be helping us shout about our work by wearing the Brian House colours as you dash under the Blackpool Illuminations.
But can you help us even more? If you raise just £30 in sponsorship or make a donation as you complete your entry form, together you can help us reach an amazing £60,000 to help care for the most fragile children in your community.
As the night draws in and the Illuminations fire up for their preview, you’ll gather on the Tower Festival Headland, opposite Blackpool Tower.
When the horn sounds at 8.30pm, you’ll set off north along a traffic-free promenade, running to the turning point at Red Bank Road and heading back down to the finish line outside the Tower, making sure you take in the splendour of the Illuminations as you do.
The route is fully marshalled, includes a water stations at the finish line and has First Aid available for your safety.

How your support helps
Brian House is a charity – and the only specialist children’s hospice for children and teenagers with life-limiting conditions in Blackpool and on the Fylde coast. We give each child we meet the chance to live a full, magical life – however short that life might be. We help families share lovely moments together, safe and comfortable in the hands of our expert nurses. We allow children to get creative in our craft area, explore lights and sounds in our multi-sensory room and just to play, as all children should.
As we receive just a fraction of our running costs from the government, we rely on voluntary donations to keep our doors open. By collecting sponsorship for taking part in this event, or making a donation as you enter for free, you are helping us to continue to provide this much needed care.
Before you sign up to this event please take a few minutes to read our terms and conditions.
