I did this with 5 friends. We walked the course which was ideal as it was flat so no hazards! My only criticism would be there weren’t enough live bands along the route. The Oompah Loompas were great and a welcome sight on the home straight. Fab event, would definitely recommend and do it again.

Did the first one in 2019...loved it...knew this one would be more popular...even with Covid...just needs more bands or music... thought that more of the hotels and bars along the route could of put music on...but a great run event...

Really enjoyed the atmosphere after over a year of lock down. It was good to be with other runners and to be able to participate in a proper event as virtual ones can be lonely.Luke and team did a sterling job.

First time I attended this event. My 2nd 5km ever. Nice flat course but if wind is blowing as it does sometimes its hard work but great fun. Would recommend it for a 1st attempt at a 5km. The music helps you along. And great camaraderie within all the runners helping each other along. Fully enjoyed the experience. Will book again.

A fantastic day out for both beginners and seasoned runners. A very well organised and friendly event. A simple but challenging enough course between the the three piers along the the famous Blackpool promenade, incorporating great sea views and allowing for a breeze which was very welcome on this particular very hot day. Also a very welcome addition to my medal collection. A simply stunning medal! Many thanks to all the performers and volunteers on the day. Overall a very professionally run event. I will be back in the future.

The party atmosphere of the event was great both before and afterwards. The route was flat making it near perfect for a PB but the heat was too much on this day. I must of missed the water stop, don't think I was the only one so I think it needs to be made more clear next year. While not a serious race its a shame the results were messed up by 10k runners deciding to drop to 5k on the run, but at least chip timing was provided. Great medal and T shirt if purchased

Brilliant atmosphere for someone doing their first ever 5k, could have just done with some music between north and south pier to help move along a bit better but overall a great experience.

Definitely needed more toilets. Clearer race instructions to tell everyone to run down the left side of the road. But was a great race, amazing people at the festival and marshal; crowd support was ok, was some jeering as well (know this isn’t the organisers fault)

Thought it was very well organised but we didn't really like the route, realise you are limited on where you can go with road closures etc but it was a bit boring route. I also didn't like that people were crossing the road Infront of you all the time had a few near misses. Overall a good day but think I'd rather do the illuminations one again than this one
