28.Mar.12 Lytham St Annes Road Running club achieves clubmark
On the 19th March Lytham St Annes Running club was awarded their England Athletics' Club Accreditation. The club have been working towards this day for some time and it has been a great achievement for a developing club to attain this accreditation.
Lytham is well known for its success in the road running side but in 2009 Tony Croft went to the committee asking to provide something for juniors within the local area. Tony - with a few other coaches and volunteers - established and developed a junior section of the club that covers, sportshall, and more recently Athletics 365, which has proved very popular with the members.
Claire Buckle, local Club and Coach Support Officer from England Athletics said, "It has been a fantastic achievement for the club to be awarded with this accreditation and it has shown me what a well structured family club Lytham St Annes is - as gaining this award has been the whole club's achievement. It is hoped that the club can now push on and continue the good work it has already started."
