The course is on a flat tarmac path along the Ribble estuary.

Starting at the Fylde Spitfire Memorial, runners will join the new coast path before passing Fairhaven lake. The path will lead you past Granny's Bay and onto Lytham green. Here you will have views of Lytham windmill to the left and to the right, views across the estuary, towards Southport and North Wales. At the end of Lytham green, runners will reach the turn round point, to return to the Spitfire Memorial.

For those who want to complete a marathon distance, then you will have to complete 5 laps. For the 1/2 marathon you will complete 2 full laps and a short 2.62 mile loop.

As long as you complete one lap then you will be a finisher and recieve an official time and a medal.
