Sunday 26th April 2015....
The famous Blackpool Marathon & Half Marathon returns, with the addition of a 10k event to tempt even more runners to get their trainers on and have a run. As always the event is run on Blackpool's Promenade passing all the great landmarks and tourist spots. This event is ideal for all the family and Blackpool is always a great weekend
away!

Here is all the info on all three events...

•  •  • Marathon •  •  •  

Race Venue... The race venue is the Hilton Hotel, North Promenade, Blackpool FY1 2JQ. Access is via the front of the Hotel. Changing facilities, toilets and showers are located in the adjacent leisure centre. (A towel charge is made for the shower facilities after the race). Baggage storage is also located within the registration area. Items are left entirely at owners risk and are not manned by race staff during the event. There is a race enquiry desk where you can go for help or advice about the day.

Registration... Your running number and timing tag need to be collected on race weekend from the race venue. Registration is open on Saturday 25th April (10am-4pm) and race morning from 6am to 9.45am. Please bring your email confirmation or payment receipt with you when collecting your race pack to ensure a swift collection process. There are separate desks for the marathon, half marathon and the 10k. Numbers will be distributed in alphabetical order for each individual race. Arrive in plenty of time to avoid queues.

How to get to the race... Car: From North and South use M55 to the end. Follow signs to Blackpool Tower. When passing the Tower on your right continue North along the Promenade for 1 mile and the hotel is located on the right. Please note the Promenade is closed to traffic from 8.15am for the race! Train: Use Blackpool North Station. When leaving turn right along Dickson Road and the hotel is half mile on left. BUS: Promenade Service from Central.

Car Parking... Weather permitting; car parking will be available on the field next to the hotel (£2.00 all day). Additional parking is available at Gynn Square, which is 300m further north of the hotel (Pay & Display). Side roads can be used as well as the car parks in town, which are only 1 mile away. Please do not use the hotel car park as this is for residents only. Please park legally at all times. Council Parking Enforcement Officers operate throughout the day.

Race Day... Arrive in plenty of time to allow you to park, collect your number and timing tag, get changed and visit the toilet etc. Just before the start the toilets will become busy so plan your visit carefully. Please fill in the medical/contact information section on the back of your running number. Be careful not to damage or lose your number, as replacements can’t be issued. If there’s a risk you may blackout during the race (for example if you suffer from fits), put a red cross on the front of your number. Please pin your number on your FRONT without folding or covering it - it needs to be seen by the race marshals. Do not pass your running number onto somebody else without notifying registration first. This is to ensure the results are correct and for obvious safety and medical reasons. When you are happy that you are ready to run, make your way to the start area. The route to the start point is clearly marked. Line up behind the start line. There will be a few safety announcements and then the race will start at 10.00am prompt (10.15am for the 10k race). The route you are running on is open to the public so be aware of pedestrians and cyclists. The course is traffic free. We advise that you do not wear iPods or similar devices whilst running. You may not hear marshals or indeed fellow runners if they need help! At the finish you will be awarded with your runners medal. There is water available and also medics should they be needed.

Water Stations... Water stations will be located at approximately three-mile intervals on the route. 330ml Iceni bottled water is available to all runners. The bottle cap will be removed before being passed to you. Each station will be clearly signed. Please try and drop bottles as soon as possible so we don’t litter the course too much. It also helps the crew at the stations to pick the bottles up quicker.  Do not use bottled water from the drinks stations to tip over your head as this reduces supplies for runners at the back of the field. A water station is also located at the finish area. Medics are available at the water station and at the finish.
