Beaverbrooks Blackpool 10K

is the postal closing date of 5th Jan right?

it was May last year. if so i guess i missed the boat. mind not helped that i kept looking on the event website for it, which just has not been updated at all since last years pics were put on. 



  • Just go for it Bats. Can't see them rejecting a postal entry unless it's full.

    It was good last year as we went up for 3 days, & we spent the Sat at the Pleasure Beach. image

    It's one for all abilities too. Think I beat something like 522 people! Good atmosphere with a live radio show & commentary.

    Have you actually done any running in the past month!!?? When are you next going to Heaton? I'm getting drawn to the Woodbank park one too. Nice to have a change.

  • i will, be the end of the month though.

    zero running for almost 4 weeks. kiddywinks over xmas now the snow not happy lol. 

    not sure when back at heaton. hopefully in 2 weeks time

  • Try not to do any training at all until the next Heaton, then I may have a chance of beating you.....I wasn't far off your time at "The Best"!!!!!!!
  • and remember, even that day i set a new pb lol
  • Me too. We were both on form that day.....but from now on, you eat my dust.... image
  • well you need to get out of my dust trail 1st to see where you're going lol
  • Will we ever see dust's just snow snow snow.... image
  • they finally updated the website and sorted the postal closing date.

     got my entry in now image

  • done this race twice and to me it is the best race in Blackpool 

    bats good luck

    I am doing Leeds half that day

  • cheers Dinda. enjoyed it on my previos occasion too, just taken me too long to get back to it.
  • This will be my first 10K. Really looking forward to it. Anyone else on here doing this one?
  • I've just decided to do this. What are the conditions/benefits of entering as a team? So you can see how well you do on average compared with other teams and see where you are in the finishing positions?

    Also it says normal entries are £9.50 but online entry is £11?

  •  Welcome Wellyman.

    Hi Alex. runnersworld add on a cut for themselves (in most cases its £1.50).

    i think what the organisers have done though is make it so its £11 overall through here by taking the hit themselves and keeping it £11 for post enteries so everyone pays the same. 

  • Thanks a lot.
  • 7 weeks to go, this will be my 10th Blackpool 10k!!  PB I hope image

    Anyone know of any good 5k's between now and then???

  • I've found the new thread now! There are some 5ks in Manchester, if you're near there. I'm doing one on May 3rd in Wythenshawe Park.
  • just entered this one had a bad time a blackpool marathon  but only 7 weeks traning !!!
  • Have done the illuminations 10k before - is this the same route??

    bats and everyone

    SRH races are cutting down on races they put on Rons wife is not well at all and I think he needs more time with Family
  • cheers Dinda.

    its been a while since i did one of his races, and to be honest im not bothered if i never do another one. 

    now have car so im not reliant upon getting to local places like blackpool too much anymore.

  • See you all Sunday!
  • compo 1compo 1 ✭✭✭
    all have a good one done this race and it is a great race
  • I'm just getting my entry in. Might enter on the day actually. Don't think it's full.....??

    Be sure to stay & watch everyone finish, as last year there were all kinds of people running, & they need your support! Like the Down's Syndrome kids who were chuffed to bits to get a medal. image

    It's the only race that bimblers like me can beat hundreds of people!! image

    Off to the Pleasure Beach afterwards......yee ha.....image

  • BB get it entered now to be safe lol image
  • Maybe I like to live dangerously!! image Ps. Have you any idea how wet you're going to get on Valhalla!?? image
  • i'll have my shorts on still, i dont care lol
  • It's going to rain, so we'll be wet anyway. The rain should keep the queues down....
