What is the cost to enter?
How do I register?
You can register online or offline. To register online please go to www.lythamlifeboats.co.uk and follow the links to a secure site. Paper forms are available from the shop at Lytham Lifeboat Station or the shop at St.Anne’s Lifeboat Station.
Can I register on the day?
Yes, you can register at either end of the course, but we hope the majority of people will register before the day to speed things up so that everyone gets to the start line on time.
Where will registration/check in take place?
Race entrants should first check in (if they have already registered) or register at ST.ANNES Lifeboat Station (behind the St.Anne’s YMCA Swimming Pool) or at LYTHAM Lifeboat Station from 9.30am onwards.
How do I get to the start line?
If you register/ check in at St Annes, you can catch a ride on a classic bus to the start line at Lytham Lifeboat Station. If you register at Lytham you can use the bus to take you back after your run/walk. Please note dogs are not allowed on the bus.
Is there a minimum or maximum age?
There is no minimum or maximum age. We would ask that younger children are accompanied by an adult. Toddlers in pushchairs are permitted. Please note there is a flight of steps to access the beach from Fairhaven Lake to be negotiated, which will be fully marshalled, at all times. People in mobility scooters or wheelchairs are also welcome. They will just need to do a detour on the pavements between Fairhaven and the Beach Cafe. This route will also be marshalled.
Do I need to raise sponsorship on top of entry fee?
Sponsorship is optional but it would benefit the Shannon Appeal greatly if sponsorship could be obtained and sponsorship forms are available for this purpose on and off line. You can pay in the money you raise at the St Annes station or at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/rnli-Lytham-st-annes-shannon-appeal
Do I get a teeshirt?
Yes, when you register/check in at Lytham Lifeboat Station or St.Anne’s Lifeboat Station.
Can I bring my dog?
Dogs on leads are permitted, but please note dogs are not allowed on the classic bus.
Please read our terms and conditions. You will need to agree to these as part of the sign up process.
