Coronavirus Covid-19

Juniors - 08/10/20 - Due to the current Covid situation, unfortunately we are unable to take on any more juniors for the foreseeable future.

Now that Government Regulations regarding Covid have been relaxed a little training is now taking place again for club members. Juniors are meeting at the YMCA, Mythop Road, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Seniors meet at Lytham High School, Albany Road, on Tuesdays, and at the YMCA, Mythop Road, on Thursdays.

Runners must adhere to the Covid rules and must have read the attached risk assessment.

As a club we are taking members' safety seriously and have appointed John Wilde as our Covid-19 risk assessor. John will be happy to answer any questions.

Couch to 5k (c25k)

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.

We are relaunching (after covid) our 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 start on Monday 4 October at 630, 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 (especially on dark nights), 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.
