Roadhogg runners


On Wednesday 14th, we'll be doing an out and back run from Manor Road. We'll run together as a group for 10 minutes then 15 minutes at our own pace before turning round and running back along the same route. Route.

We also offer 'structured' sessions on a Tuesday at Victoria Park (War Memorial, 7pm) where our coach supervises hill and interval training. These sessions are aimed at any member who wants to improve their running (irrespective of current speed).

Stilton 7

The icy winds were a bit challenging but a dry sunny morning made for excellent running conditions as we kicked off the 2018 LRRL season. Andrew made an excellent club debut and Sam, Stevie and Julie ran their first road race for the club. Whilst we lost a few to injury and illness, we still managed to field 21 runners. Mark and Leah led the way for their respective teams and there were PBs for Janet and Dave. Results. Tables are on LRAN.

Charnwood Hills Race

Five members tackled Leicestershire's only 'long' fell race. Although the weather was cold and dry, recent rain meant the course was not taking any prisoners. Dave and Kathryn both managed to improve on their 2017 times, while Steve W (injury) and Hitesh (illness) adopted the sensible approach. Unfortunately Aruna, who had completed a 20-miler on the Friday, missed the cut-off.

Allestree XC

Prab Stevie

Round 4 of the Derby Runner XC League was held in Narnia (Allestree). A dozen guys and a half dozen ladies, plus hardy supporters Kim, Amy and Jackie braved the conditions and made sure we scored well. Special mention to Stevie and Prab, who both made their league debuts. Results. Picture credit: V+M Images.

New Beginner and Improver Groups

Our latest beginner group started on 10th January and has now closed. Our improver group (Wednesdays 7pm, Manor Road), aimed at at people who've run their first 5K and want to move their running on, remains open. You can sign up at: or for more information contact Alison (Beginner Running Coordinator).

Holly Hayes XC

The woods were at their autumnal best and the course was technical but fast. If the rain had stayed away it would have been just perfect! George made his cross country debut and most of those who were new for this season came back for another go. Considering most of the runners had been at the club dinner the previous evening, no one seemed worse for wear. For the men, the oldies were to the fore with Richard G, Dave and Dale following Dave P home. Bec was top hoggette with Aruna, Helen and Janet making up the scoring four. Results.
