Ivanhoe Runners


WELCOME TO THE IVANHOE RUNNERS WEBSITE 

In light of the current Covid situation we are following the advice of both England Athletics and the UK government and are running in small socially distanced groups. Club members can book on a run via the google sheet accessible on the club Facebook site. There are a mix of group runs availble including off road/trail, road and coached sessions. New members are welcome to join a group run, please contact a member of the committee to see what is available.

  • We are a road, cross-country and social running club welcoming runners of all abilities (16 years and over), based in Ashby-de-la-Zouch since 1985. We usually meet at Hood Park Leisure Centre.

  • We have strong affiliations with the Ivanhoe Robins Junior Athletics Club

  • We organise the famous and very successful ALDI Ashby 20 road race held every year 5 weeks (2020 six weeks) before the London Marathon

  • New members are ALWAYS welcome - see Membership pagesContact us, come and have a chat with us at the local races or just turn up!


WHEN AND WHERE WE TRAIN: NB: currently we are NOT meeting at Hood Park on a Wednesday night.

Wednesday evenings: Hood Park Leisure Centre, Ashby, LE65 1HU. Usually this is our main training evening however due to the current Covid situation these sessions are not happening. Includes quality session and group runs. Meet at 7pm to run at 7.15pm. Approx. one week in four also at Tamworth Athletics track 7pm. See This weeks activities for details. Please note that newcomers to the club are recommended to come along on a Wednesday as their first visit, as they can be welcomed by the captains and committee members. 

Friday evenings: Hood Park Leisure Centre, Ashby, LE65 1HU. Again due to Covid 19 these sessions are not taking place. Group runs of varying paces and distances, both on road and off road.

​Please note: that when we are on "winter training" using mainly the streets around Ashby, we need to be cognisant of other pedestrians and pavement users - please be careful when running in large groups and be courteous at all times. At Hood Park, please be aware of our large numbers and avoid blocking the entrance / exit and reception area. Also, for your own safety, PLEASE wear something hi-viz. Thanks.

Note Tamworth track sessions: booked for Wednesday nights, for next session see "This weeks activities".
