When we meet

Tuesdays and Thursdays 6.30pm

On Tuesdays there's a choice between interval training with our coaches or just going for a run.

Sessions vary from 200m to 5k over a six week period, held at various locations around the Lytham YMCA. See the noticeboard in the YMCA or the calendar of events on the website front page for session details.

We try to keep to a regular schedule but weather or races important to the club may result in last minute changes. The following are examples of the sessions we organise.

Training Options
Activity Location
500m/1000m Bellingham Road
1200m/5k Time Trial Prom (Windmill)
Miles Park View
400m Prom (Yachting Club)
600m Prom or YMCA Field
800m Prom
Pyramid YMCA Field

Sessions on the prom start at an appropriate place so as to run to the flag pole and back. Always run anti-clockwise round the flag pole.

For an up to date schedule of what we have planned see the calendar on the Home Page.

On Thursdays runs are between 3 - 8 miles, catering for all standards and abilities. Beginners will be accompanied by experienced runners and shorter runs can be arranged if required.


There are occasionally longer runs arranged informally on Sundays. These will be announced at the club, by email and on facebook. See below for details of the latest Sunday runs:

Starting this Sunday and the weather looks great ! Marathon training Sunday Club - 9.45am - everyone welcome starting...

Beginners Sessions - Mondays 6.30pm

Would you like to run but don't know where to start?

Lytham St. Annes Road Runners Club has started a group for you. No experience or running ability is necessary - just a willingness to try.

Beginners sessions take place from the YMCA on Monday nights as 1830hrs - so pop down and join us.

For more information, please contact: Terry Hellings ( 07748 187616 /

Couch to 5k (c25k) - Mondays 6.30pm

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 regularly run 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 completed our latest Couch to 5k programme in the middle of March; watch this space for when we announce the next set of sessions!

If you would like further information, please contact: Kirsten Burnett (07846 112332 /

Junior Sessions

Junior Sessions are held on Mondays (Athletics), Tuesdays and Thursdays.

For more information follow the links on the menu above.

Join the club, or not too sure? Or maybe just visiting the area?

If you are new to running or the area and are considering joining a club but not too sure if it's for you, don't worry, come along and see if you like it. There won't be any pressure for you to join the club on your first day, though obviously we'd be happy for you to join if you decide running is your thing.

Or maybe you're just visiting the area on holiday or for work? Come and join us, you will almost certainly find someone to run with of similar abilities most nights.

Where we meet

We meet at Lytham YMCA in the bar area, accessed through the YMCA main entrance or directly from the second entrance round the side.

The Mondays beginners group meets in the YMCA lobby.

Changing facilities and lockers are situated off the lobby, straight ahead from the main (first) entrance with further lockers in the corridor leading to the bar.

We return to the bar to socialise after each run. If you are coming to the Club for the first time you may wish to contact a member of the Committee for more information about the Club.
