Fleetwood Promenade parkrun @ Fleetwood Promenade

The Fleetwood Promenade parkrun isn’t in a park and you don’t have to run!

Take it at your pace … run, walk, pull or push (a buggy), bring the dog with you (on a lead please), bring the family … you set your target time to cover the 5Km and off you go.

The event takes place every Saturday morning promptly at 9.00am along the Outer Promenade, The Esplanade, Fleetwood starting from the back of Marine Hall.

It’s free to take part but please register with the parkrun website before your first run – you only need to do it once. Don’t forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode each week because if you forget it your time can’t be recorded and you don’t want to miss that personal best!

Once registered you can enter any of the hundreds of parkrun events across the Country.

So what are you waiting for, sign up today and have a go. 

Fleetwood Promenade parkrun needs you!
It is entirely organised by volunteers – email fleetwoodpromenadehelpers@parkrun.com to join the group of marshalls and timekeepers – just once a month would be a great help.
