Club nights are every Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday nights we start from the North Kesteven Sports Centre (LN6 9AX), except for the last Tuesday of the month, which is now our track night at LSST sports facility (LN5 8PW). *For our track nights we charge £2 per session, payable on the night or in advance (this covers some of the clubs track hire costs, and enables us to keep the overall membership fee for the year low). The club runs start promptly at 7:00, please aim to meet up a few minutes earlier for any announcements and to greet any new members.
Thursday nights we vary our start location in Lincoln and the surrounding areas, to add spice and the occasional hill to your training. Please see the Training Schedule for further details. We offer a free initial session for a Tuesday and Thursday night so you can come and see what the club offers without committing to membership. Please contact the club via the contacts form or email link for further details.
You now apply for membership online by filling in our registration form. Once submitted, the membership secretary will contact you with payment details and then can register you as an affiliated athlete with the club and England Athletics. Alternatively, we have a paper based membership form you can complete and email or post back.
The membership fee for 2022/2023 is remaining at £35 for the year. This also covers affiliation with England Athletics, so you will receive your EA card soon after joining. LDR Membership will run from 1st April 2022 to 31 March 2023. Anyone joining part way through the club year may be eligible for a reduction in the fees, depending on what time of year they join. Please bear in mind that EA affiliation costs are not pro rata so there will always be a minimum membership fee to cover this.
