'Keeping South Fylde running'


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 - 6 miles with longer runs for stronger runners and groups 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 or by email.

Beginners Session - Mondays 6.30pm

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.
