About this event

Blackburn hospital route

On Sunday, 25 September 2022, join us for our 3rd annual Big NHS Walk and experience the incredible atmosphere, camaraderie and sense of community, whilst raising funds for your local NHS hospital charity.

Following the huge success of our inaugural event in 2019 - the Big NHS Walk – two routes – one goal - is back bigger and better than before! Once again there will be two walks setting off at the same time, one from Blackburn hospital, which is the one you are signing up for, and one from Burnley Teaching Hospital. Both routes unite near the end so we can all join in spirit and finish the walk together.

Whether you choose to start from Blackburn or Burnley - The Big NHS Walk charts a lush 11-mile course through some of East Lancashire’s most scenic countryside. Walk with us and discover the iconic landmarks, heritage sites, and hidden gems in the heart of our local communities. Feel the exhilaration and energy as you walk beside staff who work so hard to deliver the best care possible, patients who have received lifesaving treatment, and grateful family members who want to say thank you for the care their loved ones received.
