Details for the first Winter LRRL are as follows:
Barrow 6 – 25th January at 10.30am.
Venue, Humphrey Perkins School, Cotes Road LE12 8JU.
The race starts at 10.30am but please get there early as it’s a popular race. It would be great to get as many member as possible running this Sunday:)
For those new to the club the LRRL (Leicester Road Running League) is a series of races(11) throughout the year open to all club runner. The league is split into 2 sections(i) winter league and (ii) the summer league.
The winter league is a closed league meaning you must be a member of an affiliated club to participate. You arrive on the day and pay £4 (50p increase from last year to cover additional cost) to your club representative (that’s me this year) and off you go:) After your 1st race you keep the same race number for the duration of winter league, so keep hold of your number:) Please note a club vest must be worn during these races which if you do not have can be purchased from Penny Masser.
The summer league is a little different as it is an open league so anyone can enter (no need to be part of a club) These races can be entered online in advance. You get a different number for each race and race costs do vary.
A variety of awards are given out by the league. Individual awards are determined for the winter league based on performance in 4 out of 5 races and the summer league based on 4 out of 6 race performances. All runners that successfully complete all 11 league races will get 100% award (a very nice looking trophy:) Team prizes exist for teams who finish near the top of their division after all the years races. teams for the league require 4 ladies for a ladies team and 8 men for a men’s team.
Last year we had a fantastic turnout with almost enough ladies to make 3 teams at each race and this showed in the team results. So regardless of where you feel you are in your running the league races are a fantastic opportunity to test yourself, improve, be part of a great team and have a great experience (especially more so when there is cake at the end:)
Hope to see you all there on Sunday morning
If anyone would like to recce the cross country course (5.4 miles) this Saturday morning then Sally and I are setting off from the car park at 08:30. Everyone is welcome, some might want to get there earlyer and run a bit around Bradgate first, or after, or both! All abilities welcome.

For the men, George Birt. Finishing first for Hinckley on Sunday as well as Saturday at the County XC chamionships. George is no stranger to the cross countrys, finishing 8th and 9th in previous races. Well done George and keep up the hard work.
For the ladies, Amanda Knight. Having only joined the club towards the end of the summer, she has shown her determination and effort in every cross country race so far (and in Vibram five fingers rather than spikes!). Well done Amanda great effort, keep it up.
Despite the very hilly course many others were on top form. Thanks to all of those who ran or came to support, espically Ben Harding who, coming back from a football injury, travelled over to see if he could run in the race. Making the sensible decision after his warm up, that he wasn’t quiet ready for it. Thanks for trying though!
Last weekend saw a load of running in mud across the County. First off, on Saturday saw the Leicestershire & Rutland County Athletics Association Cross Country Championships (LRAA) held at Cosby. The course was as flat as a pancake, by the time I ran at 14:15 many sections were very muddy, just how we like […][Continue reading…]
