Join us for Blackpool Dogs Unite 2018, taking in the iconic Blackpool Lights as you walk along the prom. This sponsored dog walk for Guide Dogs is not to be missed!

Now in it's seventh year, our hugely popular Blackpool Lights sponsored dog walk is back in October 2018 and is not to be missed! Join us for this great fundraising event for Guide Dogs, against the backdrop of the iconic Blackpool Tower and Lights. 

Timings for the 2018 event are approximate and will be confirmed as soon as possible.

There is one walk route, with two distances that can be chosen on the day: approx. 5km (3.1 miles) for the keen, and 1.6km (1 mile) for those wanting a gentler stroll.


The route is accessible and suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

  • Please familiarise yourself with the tram safety leaflet available from Blackpool Transport before the walk

Register to join this memorable evening now, get your free super dog cape in the post and start fundraising.

We challenge you to raise £35 in sponsorship - enough to support a guide dogs partnership for a whole week! Check out our fundraising ideas to get started.

As a huge thank you for their support each pooch will receive a certificate on completing their walk. Make sure you visit the desk on your return to collect yours.
