St. Annes Carnival 5k and St. Annes Carnival Junior 1500m

"Yes, it's back" we hear you cry - the world famous (ish) St Annes Carnival 5k.

In 2007, the St Annes Carnival 5K was created along with its subsidiary the St Annes Carnival Junior 1500m. Both races are over an accurately measured and certified distance and we are proud to bring them back as part of the St Annes carnival day.

The race routes look to showcase the very best that St Annes-on-the-Sea has to offer - to tourists and locals, alike!

This year will be the 100th St Annes Carnival. If that wasn't enough, the Carnival will also incorporate a Platinium Jubilee Celebration.

St. Annes Carnival 5k

The adults 5k race starts at 11.00am on the prom close to the Lord Derby public house. Heading towards Fairhaven lake, the route is traffic free on open well-used pavements, marshalled throughout and distance marked along the route. A special momento awaits all finishers, along with prizes for females and males in various age categories.

Details of Sponsors and prizes to be announced in due course.

St Annes Carnival 1500m Race

The Junior race is also flat and fast. This 1.5k race is designed for a fast time, or for a first time racer. Starting at 10.00am, and sharing it's start/finish point with the adult race, the route is fully marshalled. Medals and momentos await each finisher, with prizes for first finishers.

Race HQ

Race HQ is at the Lord Derby pub, just a couple of minutes from the start and finish of the Junior Race and 5 minutes walk from the start of the 5K race.


Race Routes

Race routes for both the Junior 1500m and the 5k will be provided, once certified.
