Running is open! Check out the latest update here
The race starts behind the registration area on Rossall Point in Fleetwood, and runs along the outer promenade and Esplanade, with great views over Morecambe Bay. It's a perfect race for runners of all abilities with a fun and friendly atmosphere. Wheelchair friendly, Nordic walkers welcome.
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, events as we knew them have changed. We are staging events in a Covid secure way to ensure all our safety during this crisis.
Bib Numbers & Timing Chips
All competitor bib numbers will be posted out the week before the event. There are no collections on the day, or entries on the day.
Event Start Time
The event is a time-trial, and there will be no mass start of competitors. You will start individually in accordance with current government guidelines. A maximum of 30 competitors at any one time is permitted to access the secure start area. Please keep to the 2-metre social distancing rule at all times. Please choose your arrival times carefully to avoid causing a ‘gathering’.
Toilet units are provided for COMPETITORS ONLY. They will be positioned in the queue area and within the secure start area just in case to use them last minute. Each toilet will contain hand-sanitiser and paper towels. We ask you use the hand-sanitiser before and after you use the toilet and keep them as clean as possible. Our toilet provider will be on-site throughout the event to ensure they are kept stocked and cleaned as required.
As part of our commitment to preventing the spread of Covid-19 and following guidance from UK Athletics water will not be given out during or at the end of the event. If you have the need for water, you must bring your own.
When you have successfully completed the course, you will pass under the finishing gantry and guided through the funnel maintaining your social distance at all times. Do not stop in the finishing funnel as this will impede other runners finishing.
Spectators & Codes of Conduct
We know that bringing friends and family is a big part of your running experience, but we ask that you avoid this to enable us to maintain social distancing at the event. If this is unavoidable then please do not come to the start and finish areas. Spectators must go out on to the course. Arrange a suitable viewing position in advance as well as a post-race meeting point.
Medical Support The superb team from Remote Medical Services will be on-site throughout the event to provide medical assistance and recovery as needed. Should you require any assistance then please make yourself aware to a marshal who will notify the medics.
To minimise contact between yourself and our marshals, we ask you do not bring any baggage to the event. You need to arrive ‘ready to run’. Where this is not possible, i.e. you have come using public transport, you can deposit your bag within the secure start area as you are passing through. Baggage retrieval post-race is available at the back of the baggage area. The use of our Key Locker has been suspended for this event.
Medals As part of our commitment to preventing the spread of Covid-19 and following guidance from UK Athletics medals will not be given out at the end of the event. These will be posted to you the following week, or if you are local to us, you are more than welcome to pop into our shop and collect one.
Results will be published shortly after the event. They will be in the form of an alphabetical list, with your ‘chip time’. This is your time from the start point to the finish point.
There will not be a presentation of awards on the day so we can maintain social distancing.
When out on the course you must keep to the 2-metre social distancing rules. Keep to the LEFT HAND SIDE at all times on the two-way sections unless overtaking. If you do, move back to the left as soon as possible. The course has been officially measured as accurate and holds an Association of UK Course Measurers certificate.
DO NOT travel to the event if you are showing any symptoms of Covid-19 as outlined by the NHS.
