LegIT for Lifeboats 2022
If you’d like to challenge yourself throughout the month of May take the 5.65 (km) or 3.5 miles route from the Lytham Boathouse on Central Beach, FY8 5LG to the boat house in St Annes on Sea South Promenade, Eastbank Road, FY8 1SJ and do it just the way you would like, the RNLI are welcoming runners, walkers, toddlers, pram pushers, dog walkers, wheel chair and mobility scooter users. Fancy dress is very welcome any day, & the quirky the better!!
You can choose any time of day and any day of the week to complete the challenge because you have a whole month to do it! An added bonus is that the scenic path between the two lifeboats gives great views over the Ribble Estuary and the Irish Sea to the Welsh mountains (on a clear day)
There are some themed weekends throughout May, but of course it’s up to you how/when you join in 😊
• Join the crew Leg It – Sunday 1 May and Monday 2 May – Meet the lifesavers
• Wheelie Leg it – Saturday 7 May and Sunday 8 May – Bikes, pushchairs, wheelchairs, skates

• Fancy dress Leg it – Saturday 21 May and Sunday 22 May – grab your glad rags for this fun challenge

Hi, my name is Mark, and I am very proud to be a part of the RNLI. The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a charity that saves lives at sea. We do this through lifeboat search and rescue, lifeguards, water safety education and flood rescue. Every year we try to raise as much money as possible because in 2020 alone, It cost £139.2M (€157.3M) to run the RNLI, all of which was generously donated by the public.Throughout May, I will be running at various times wearing my full PPE; between the Lytham boathouse (ILB) and St Annes boathouse (ALB).It doesn’t matter how much you can donate because every single penny counts. If you see me running, please come and say hi, and thank you very much for donating.
