'Keeping South Fylde running'

NEW YEAR - NEW YOU

Indulged just a tad too much over the Christmas and New Year party period?

Want to change your lifestyle and wondering is running is the answer?

With regularly attending members into their 70s there's no need to worry that joining our club is too big a step for you - if you are in any doubt come along and try us out. We meet Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 18:30 in the bar area of Lytham YMCA, Mythop Road.

Monday nights are aimed at beginners who feel coming along on the other nights is too much, but everyone is welcome at every club night.

We have a junior section on these nights, too. Mondays they meet at 17:00 in the reception area, Tuesdays and Thursdays at the same time as the seniors, 18:30. At the moment, while it's dark, they meet at Queen Elizabeth II Park View park.

Come And Join Us

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.

Lytham Hall parkrun

Lytham St Annes Road Runners took over the Lytham Hall parkrun again on Saturday 13th August.

Lytham Hall parkrun is a 5k run through the grounds of Lytham Hall on the trails and paths through the woods and round the pond and is a course anyone can complete.

A great time was had by all last time - come and join the fun when we do it again.

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.

Strava

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
