About Our Club

Lytham St Annes Road Runners Club is a friendly running club established in 1998. As well as road running we participate in athletics, cross country and fell running.

Each year we organise the renowned Green Drive Five (a 5 mile road race) and the St Annes Carnival 5k & Fun Run.

Whatever your standard of running, come along to Lytham YMCA on a Tuesday or Thursday night at 6:30pm and find out how quickly your running improves.

We also have a session on Mondays for complete beginners.

The Junior Section of our club train on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

You'll receive a warm welcome and will soon see how being a member of Lytham St Annes Road Runners will lead to many enjoyable competitive and social activities.

We were recently awarded Clubmark accreditation by England Athletics. Read more on the England Athletics website

Thanks to Dave Wood for providing many of the photos on this website

If you regularly take photos of our runners (or other local clubs) and are happy for everyone to see them let Greg know and he'll add a link in for you.


We've recently set up a Strava group for the club. It's just for fun and open to any member to join if you use Strava. Just search for LSARRC and follow the instructions - any problems see Greg.

This is what we've been up to so far this week.....
