Obviously, this is not an exhaustive list of the roles that people perform within the club – there are many many more who do very important things to support the progression of the club, but it would be impossible to name them all individually, so to everyone else I would like to issue a blanket thank-you for all your hard work.

Stilton 7 entry update

For members of LRRL clubs only.
Entries for the Stilton 7, Race 2 in the 2017 LRRL Winter League will open at 8pm on Sunday 12th February (and close around a week later, if the race limit is not reached before then). There will be no entries on the day.
Full details and a direct link to the entry page have been sent to LRRL delegates who should be sharing them with each club’s members shortly.
Entry is restricted to LRRL member clubs only, anyone entering who is not a member of these clubs will not have a number issued and will not be insured to run.  LRRL operate a no refund policy in these circumstances.
The delay in making this announcement has been caused by efforts being made to expand the available facilities in order to allow more runners and this has now been achieved.  This means that we have have a licence for 500 runners (which is more than we have ever had enter).  In order to achieve this we have secured extra space outside the venue for club tents (which will include priority parking for one car per club, carrying the tent) and also a larger area for car parking.  We will need to encourage as much car sharing as possible, so will send out more information on this as the race approaches.
We would be grateful if all clubs could stress, particularly when sharing on social media, that this is a closed race and entry is only open to members of LRRL clubs.

Christmas dinner and presentation evening – Thurs 8th Dec

With over 70 Striders attending on Thursday it should be a great night.  Just to confirm details for those that are booked in, we are aiming to eat at 8pm, feel free to arrive for a drink from 7pm onwards.  The awards will be after the meal and feel free to bring along a raffle prize.

Venue is the Alpine Restaurant at The Grange, Asfordby Hill, LE14 3QU
