Debbie has asked me to remind everyone that Monday Club will be starting up again tonight, Monday 11th January.
Usual time and place, all welcome.
Happy New Year.
And apologies to those of you who turned up last week to find everything in darkness. Debbie asked me to post on the website last week, but I only updated the closed Junior Facebook group and forgot about the website. Sorry, my fault entirely. If you are on facebook but not a member of the closed junior group and would like to be, let me know your details (email@example.com) and I’ll pass them on to the group’s admin who should be able to sort you out.
The Monday Night Junior Club will be back on Monday 7th September, usual time and place (Mythop Road YMCA, 17:15-18:15). The cost is still £2.00 for hire of the hall.
This site is currently being merged with the main site, http://www.lythamrunners.org.uk
During this period there may be more up to date information on the main site.
An problems or queries please contact the Lytham Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of the junior members of the club came along to this year’s junior presentation evening to either receive an award or support their fellow athletes. The occasion is the junior sections big social event on the calendar with the ceremony being preceded by a mass game of rounders and the evening was finished off with a BBQ meal and, off course, sunshine prevailed.
The successful athletes were:
Track & Field Champions – U11 Boys Simon Holt, U11 Girls Georgia Norman, U13 Boys – James Nicholas, U13 Girls Hollie Winstanley and U15 Girls Chloe Norman.
Cross Country Champions – U11 Boys Zane Seddon, U11 Girls Rebecca Tate, U13 Girls Hollie Winstanley, U15 Girls Ella Moulding.
Monday Junior Handicap Shield – Ruby Hodgkinson, 2nd Shay Menzies, 3rd Elsie Dalton
The Coaches’ Cup which is awarded to the athlete who, in the opinion of the coaches, has shown the highest level of dedication to the sport, was awarded to Simon Holt.
The final race of the series of summer handicap races saw some fantastic performances with six runners recording personal best times. Sisters Cleme and Hebe Tierney, on their first visit to the club, ran brilliantly to finish 1st and 2nd respectively. Ellie Butterworth finished third with a personal best time with the other PB’s being run by; Celin Kirk, James Elmsley, Ruby Hodgkinson, Harry Talbot and Louis Hardman.
Ruby Hodgkinson’s fourth consecutive personal best time was rewarded with a move into the top position in the table and so she will be awarded with the championship shield at the forthcoming presentation ceremony. Shay Menzies finished runner up with Elsie Dalton in third place.
The popular St Annes Carnival Fun Run will this year be held on Sunday 12th July. The accurately measured 1.5K course is completely traffic free and suitable for all ages (younger children should be accompanied around the course by an adult).

Matthew Tattersall was first past the post in the fourth Summer Handicap Race and he was closely followed by newcomer Daniel Butterworth in second place with Harry Talbot finishing 3rd. There were marvellous performances all-round with seven runners recording personal best times around the 1 kilometre course. Shay Menzies leads the overall points table but with two races left to run it is anyone’s guess as to who will be awarded the trophy next month.
