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.

The third session is on Wednesdays from 10am to mid-afternoon and includes a breakfast for Armed Forces Veterans and other activties.

The plan is to find a permanent venue that can be used at all times for a number of activities including DIY, indoor sports and games. Suggestions of what the group could do and how you can get involved are very welcome!

THE OPEN ARMS … is Fleetwood Mens Shed shop and drop-in on Adelaide Street. Opening times vary.

If you are nervous about coming to your first session, they are a friendly bunch but you can contact them first via their Facebook page or through Healthier Fleetwood and we can arrange for somebody to look out for you on the day and settle you in.

Watch this video for more about why the Fleetwood Mens Shed was set up and is already making a difference.
