Race packs, which includes your running number, timing chip and full 'up-to-date' event information will be posted to you 7-10 days before the event. This will be sent to the address you used when you registered, so if you have moved, please let us know.
The race headquarters is located on the Middle Walkway on North Promenade. This is north of Blackpool North Pier opposite the Grand and Imperial Hotels. Look over the first sea wall and you will see the HQ area. The nearest postcode is FY1 2JQ.
Blackpool is full of car parks, and there is also on-street parking available north of North Pier. Please make sure you park legally; the wardens are everywhere in Blackpool and start work early!
We have an un-manned baggage storage area for small bags, jackets etc. This is located next to the main registration area. Do not leave any valuables in the baggage area. We also have a key storage locker at Event Support Trailer, which will be located next to the start/finish area. Hand your keys to a FCR crew member at the trailer to be secured until you have finished the run.
Portable toilets are available at the event, located near to the start/finish area. Make sure you don’t leave it until the last minute to use them, they will become very busy just before the start. There are toilets on the course, which are the ‘Danfo Superloos’. These require 40p to operate. We suggest taping a coin or two to the back of your bib number just in case you may need to use the loos on the course.
The team from Remote Medical Services will be on the course and at the finish. We hope you don’t need them, but are there if you do. Make sure you complete the medical information on the back of your bib number if you have any medical conditions, allergies or specific medical information that may be important.
