Trinity Hospice will be hosting their 2021 Blackpool Memory Walk on Saturday 18th September. The walk under Blackpool’s Illuminations is a wonderful opportunity for family and friends to come together in memory of loved ones and to show support of Trinity Hospice.
Participants can choose from two fully marshalled routes, either 5 or 8 miles. Both start and finish at the Tower Festival Headland, opposite Blackpool Tower. All walkers will head north towards Bispham, which is the turnaround point before returning to the Headlands. Walkers choosing to complete the 8 mile route continue onto the second turnaround at the Sandcastle Waterpark and then back again for a well-deserved hot drink!
On the night of the walk the special Event Village will open at 8pm, and will be bursting with live entertainment. The walk will officially start at 9.00pm. Participants are welcome to accessorise their outfit – so grab your tutus, neon leg warmers and glow sticks, and accessorise your Blackpool Memory Walk t-shirt so you’re good to glow!
The entry fee is £10, but all walkers receive:
- Participant number
- A Neon Blackpool Memory Walk t-shirt
- A hot drink & snack at the finish
- Goodie bag
- Blackpool Memory Walk medal
As entry fees only covers the cost of the event, Trinity Hospice asks that everyone tries to raise at least £30 of sponsorship, with every penny raised going directly toward providing Hospice care. Sponsorship really does make a huge difference and helps us to continue to provide care in your local community.
The organisers will be sending out participant packs nearer to the event date. You can also get the latest info and event updates by joining the event’s Facebook page or by following the event on Instagram and Twitter.
