As the night drew in and the Illuminations fired up for their preview, runners gathered on the Tower Festival Headland, opposite Blackpool Tower.
The horn sounded at 8.30pm and runners set off north along a traffic-free promenade, running to the turning point at Red Bank Road and heading back down to the finish line outside the Tower, with 7.5km completed.
Well done to Charlotte Charlesworth for taking part in the inaugural running of this event in aid of Trinity Hospice.
Charlotte managed a super 42:55(strava)
Well done lass, great stuff.
