Welcome to Lincoln District Runners - Updated 6th February 2024


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 Athletics track night, meeting at LSST off Cross O'Cliff road. This is a great opportunity for some speed sessions and to improve your 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.


Please visit our Training page for further details of what the club offers, or visit our Joining page if you are interested in joining the club. You can also contact us via email or through the online form on the Contacts page.
