We are members of Leicestershire Road Running League (“LRRL”), which is a series of around 12 races each year – usually around 5 in the winter league and 7 in the summer league. Results are usually linked at www.lran.org.uk , an explanation of the 2017 scoring system is at http://lran.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/LRRL-Scoring-Systems-Explained-2017.pdf and analysis of prior years is at http://racestats.run/Club/Stilton-Striders
2017 fixtures are below:
Winter league races are closed (meaning they are only open to members of affiliated clubs), chip timed races at 10.30am on a Sunday morning – all between 5 miles and 10k in distance. At £5 per race, these races create a real team spirit, with each club gathering together in the hall before and after the race. Runners score points based on their finishing position both for their individual score, and towards their club’s team result. All runners must wear club kit in these races.
For the winter league races many Striders meet at the Wilton Road car park in Melton just before 9am to share lifts to the race. For 2016 and 2017, our own Stilton 7 was one of the races.
Summer league races are open (meaning they can be entered by anyone, and usually require entry in advance to avoid disappointment), up to half marathon in distance and vary in price. Runners who are a member of one of the affiliated clubs score league points in the same way as the winter league.
