Hello and Welcome to The Allegr 12 Lytham St Annes Event.
We’re delighted you’re here, and really hope you’ll join in.

What's happening on Saturday June 12th?

Ben will run for 12 hours non-stop around a 5 k loop in Lytham.

We’d love you to join in - for some, or all of this. As slow or as fast as you want, for as little or as much time as you wish.  

The course will open at 0700 and close at 1900. Between those times you are free to show up, and go as far, or for as long, as you can. Not because you have to, but because you want to.

Just join the loop (with your people / community or alone) and bring your 100%.  

Ben’s 12 hour mission might be the headline, but the real story of the Campaign lies with YOU all - the people who show up on the day – and the many individuals across the country who will also be joining in remotely.  

Your distance. Your pace.

Just bring yourself and enjoy the chance to connect
and engage with your local community.

As simple as... 1, 2, 3

The route will start and end in Lowther Gardens and is an "out and back" course along the sea front - approximately 6km long.

The route is on pavements, there will be simple markings, however it is easy to follow. Details will be shown in the Yellow Tent on the noticeboard.

There will be a big yellow tent (obvs) set up easy to spot, please meet there to start your loop. You can wait for Ben to come past or just get going.

This is all about participating in whichever way that you want - so join in at whatever time you wish, for as long as you want, at whatever pace you feel like.

Just follow the route - it really is that simple.

Please remember: leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but memories.
