Your walk. Your way

What to expect on the day

Take the shorter 2km walk for a gentle stroll along the world famous promenade which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 7.5km walk will take you further along the promenade, past the Pleasure Beach. Don’t forget your sunglasses and walking boots! Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.

All routes will start and finish at Tower Festival Headland, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for by leaving a message on the Memory Tree, and watch it blossom through the day. 

How to get there

Memory Walk will start and finish by the comedy carpet by Blackpool Tower. There is no dedicated event parking, so please use city centre parking and public transport. See the local government website for more information about parking near the venue. The start and finish is less than 1km from Blackpool North train station.

To keep Blackpool environmentally friendly please choose the most sustainable method of transport and car share where possible.

Registration will close Thursday 12th September 2019 and you will not be able to register at the event. So sign up now and get your team members to do so too!
