Welcome to Lincoln District Runners - Updated 11th July 2022


Welcome to Lincoln & District Runners. We are a friendly and social group of runners who meet for runs in Lincoln and the surrounding areas.


The club meets twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7:00pm. Tuesday nights (except the last Tuesday of the month which is our dedicated track night at LSST) are hosted at North Kesteven Leisure Centre, whilst Thursday nights are hosted at a variety of locations in and around Lincoln. During the summer months and lighter evenings we head to many of the beautiful villages around Lincoln to add some trail running to our training.


The last Tuesday of each month is now Athletics track night, meeting at LSST off Cross O'Cliff road. This is a great opportunity for some speed sessions and to improve you racing performance. There is a nominal fee of £2.00 per member to cover the cost of the track that can be paid on the night, or sessions can be booked and paid in advance via online payment. Information has been emailed to all club members with further details.


We endeavour to make our club runs fun and varied, whilst encouraging runners to develop and improve. We offer weekly structured sessions, regular trips aways to the hills, club hosted events, headtorch runs, regular timed sessions, yearly championship challenges, and social events to keep you busy throughout the year. We also encourage members to lead runs and events, and offer substantial discounts for members wishing to persue the Leadership in Running Fitness (LIRF) qualifications.

Club Championship 2022


The 2022 LDR Club Championship is now online. It's all proper races this year - hooray!, but some races may be subject to cancellation. There are 23 races currently on ther calendar with the best 10 counting towards the championship. Where there is an overlap with the club track nights (for example the LWAC 5K series) you will have the option to run the distance on ther track and the time will still count as normal.


Well done to everyone who took park in any of the rounds of the LDR 2021 Championship. We managed 7 events this year, 4 virtual events with a range of distances from 5K to half marathon, a traipse along the viking way and back, a photographic Imp statue challenge, and finally finishing with the Lincoln 10K road race. We had 36 members take part, which is a great acheivement.
