Welsh Castles Relay

Another great weekend was had at the Welsh Castles Relay in the baking heat of 2023. We were pleased to return to the Welsh Castles Relay weekend for 2023 and fielded a strong team. It is always a "challenge" running the Welsh hills, which can come as quite a shock are putting together a team for the weekend. Pease get in contact with Chris (Team Captain), or Lewis (Deputy) for more information, especially if you'd be interested in joining us in future years.

St Annes Carnival 5k and Junior 1500m

2024 Carnival 5k Date

Lytham St Annes Road Runners are proud to present the St Annes Carnival 5k and St Annes Carnival Junior 1500m races on Sunday 30th June 2024.

This year marks the 102nd St Annes Carnival. What better way that to enjoy your time in St Annes, than with a couple of runs - suitable for all ages and levels of ability!

Brought to you by the same team who organise the successful Green Drive Five races in October, keep an eye on our dedicated page.

Couch to 5k (c25k) Programme

We love to support people who are new to running or returning to it after a break. As a club, we pride ourselves on being inclusive of all abilities. We are really proud when our faster runners produce amazing performances, but just as thrilled to see people achieving personal goals, distance or time personal bests and becoming part of the life of our club.

After having completed a successful programme for beginners several times in 2022, we will be launching our next course, offering support for beginner runners, with a 9-week Couch to 5k programme. Led by a group of friendly, trained coaches, we'll help you reach that milestone following a tried and tested programme. We'll keep the group small so we can tweak it to support individual needs. And we'll celebrate with you as a club as you hopefully "graduate" at our local parkrun.

While the programme is free and there is no obligation to join the club afterwards, we hope you'll get the running bug, make some friends, and decide to stay with us.

We started on Monday 12th June 2023 at 6:30pm, with weekly sessions at the same time throughout the programme. There will be runs for you to complete in between but if you want company, you may be able to arrange it with a fellow couch to 5k buddy or we'll help find one of our members to join you.
