We would like to welcome to the club Carl Mead who has joined us in the last month. We hope you enjoy running with us.

Runner of the Month

Runner of the Month for September is  Mick Winkless. 

Mick joined the club earlier this year.  He started running in Sue’s group and has since moved up into Alison’s group on a Tuesday night.

His first race was Rothley 10k where he did 58:39 minutes. Not satisfied with that he then moved onwards and upwards to the Snowdonia Trail  Marathon, as you do, which he completed in a time of 4hours 10 minutes. In between he has done many varying distance races including league races. More recently during October, Mick did the Leicester Half Marathon, followed by the Skeleton run and then the first Cross Country race at Holly Hayes.
Mick embraces anything that is thrown at him and is fully committed to his running and every race that Andrea has entered him for!!!!
Well done Mick, very well deserved.
We have now added a ROTM Archive on the website which can be viewed here
Less than 60 places remaining - if you are planning on running book your place asap.

Unfortunately our Prestwold 10k was not voted in for a second season, the race committee are reviewing options and will share more details once known.

Another change for this year is that all winter league races will no longer be 'enter on day' and will move to a online only pre entry system - more details will be shared once known.

For those interested in stats the below may be of interest.  It uses the LRRL results archive to give you all sorts of comparisons both across the league and within the club, with some races going back as far as 1984!
