Green Drive Five and Junior Green Drive Mile

The annual Green Drive Five and Junior Green Drive Mile were held on Sunday 18th October 2015 and were a great success.

The race report is now available.

This year's race will take place on Sunday 16th October.


Headphone use during the race

British Athletics (UKA) Rules no longer allow headphones to be worn during races which are not held on completely closed roads - Rule 240 S5.

As the majority of Green Drive Five is on open public roads that means no competitors may wear non medically prescribed headphones on the course. Anyone seen wearing headphones during the race will be disqualified and will not appear in the results.


Green Drive Five £11.40, Unattached £13.70 (Prices include online booking fee. No extra charge for entry to Lancashire AA 5 Mile Championships.)

Green Drive Junior Mile £3.50 entry on the day (subject to race limit of 100 not being reached).

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



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.

Greg's photos can be found on his Flickr account.

If you see him around a course with his camera they'll be uploaded to here, though it may take a day or two.


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.

We don't have many members yet, but this is what we've been up to so far this week.....

You never know, if enough of us join it's possible that between us we may run 1,000 and miles in a week? The land round here is pretty flat so our total climb won't be too much, but a mile or two (5,280 - 10,560 feet) should be possible.

Forthcoming activities
