Varied club night runs
LFR runs a club night every Tuesday, with a variety of different runs from leader-based runs grouping you by ability to more social-oriented runs. Depending on the time of year, we run trail, off-road and road routes. Once a month, the club night run is a 5k timed route followed by tea and cake back at the clubhouse. The aim of the club runs is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment, offering a platform for runners to improve should they wish to do so, or to enjoy a social run with friends.
LFR meets every Wednesday and Thursday night for improvement based training. The sessions are lead by fellow club members who are passionate instructors, driven by a desire to help you improve and reach your goals.

Expert Seminars (podiatry, nutrition, running form and movement, sports photography)
From time to time the club will host sessions lead by local experts covering topics that may be useful and interesting to the running community. Popular sessions have included podiatry, dynamic movement and sports photography, with future sessions including nutrition and running form planned. The sessions are often free to members although sometimes a discounted rate may be applicable.

The club has a strong social scene and regularly arranges events like club trips, quiz night runs and our popular fancy dress invite runs. We also organise a number of non-running related social events like family picnics, BBQ’s and even the odd night out on the town.

The club is affiliated with English Athletics, which means that you can enter a lot of races obtaining a small discount through this affiliation.
