Blue Skies Elf Run 2019


Blue Skies Hospitals Fund are calling on Santa’s helpers to join them in this family-friendly festive run around Heron’s Reach, Blackpool, to raise money for patients in hospitals in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. 

Simply, turn up in your favourite Elf costume and run, jog, stroll or jingle all the way. Join us next to Blackpool Zoo Car Park for this festive event in association with the National Elf Service. Each competitor will receive a free Elf Hat (subject to availability).

The Route

The 4.5km* route starts at the top of Woodside Drive (adjacent to Blackpool Zoo car park) and takes you around Heron's Reach Golf Course, passing The Village Hotel and Blackpool Zoo along the way. Marshals will be present at stations along the route.

We will confirm your booking and issue you with a sponsor form via emal. Elf hats will be available from the 1st November from the Blue Skies Office on the Main Corridor at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.


Monies raised from the Blue Skies Elf Run 2019 will go directly towards enhancing patient care at hospitals across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. By raising £25, you are helping us make a huge difference. However, there is no minimum requirement. Runners that raise in excess of £100 individually gain free entry to our 5k Fun Run and Zoo Trail, which takes place on Wednesday 6th May 2020.
