Welcome to Lincoln & District Runners

We make your running dreams a reality. 

Lincoln and District Runners were formed in 1991 and we are a friendly and enthusiastic running club, which welcomes runners of all abilities. We meet twice a week - on Tuesday evenings usually at North Kesteven Leisure Centre, North Hykeham and on Thursday nights at a range of locations in and around the city of Lincoln.

We generally run in two or three groups during the training sessions with runners of all abilities, but keeping the ethos 'no one is left behind'.

We organise a number of races locally, as well as attending and supporting other local events including the Lincolnshire Cross Country League on an annual basis. In addition we have a number of keen fell runners who regularly participate in events in the Lake District as well as closer to home in Yorkshire/Derbyshire.

Alongside the runners, we operate a walking section which has grown in size over the last couple of years. We have a thriving social calendar - the past year has seen numerous nights out as well as a trip to a brewery, club BBQ, ghost walk and bowling.

For more details on joining us, visit the New Members page or contact us here.
