Welcome to Lincoln District Runners - Updated 8th November 2023


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.

Club Championship 2023


The 2023 LDR Club Championship is now online. There are 21 races currently on the calendar, which include the LWAC 5K and Lincs Cross Country series, where completing all the races in a series earns a bonus 5 points. This year we also allocate points for the best ParkRun times on the year, and also for attendance at ParkRuns (either running or volunteering). There are also points for completing a marathon during the year.


As usual, the best 10 results count towards the final championship standings. 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 2022 Championship. We had over 75 members take part, which is a great acheivement.
