Ivanhoe Runners compete in three local leagues:
The Leicestershire Road Running League includes most of the counties road running clubs, competing as teams and individuals in 5 winter and 6 summer league races, over distances between five and ten miles long. The winter races are "closed", only being availaible to clubs in the league, whilst the summer races are all "open" races.
The Burton and District Summer League is made of several clubs within a radius of Burton-on-Trent who compete within usually eight open races across the summer, over distances from five miles to half-marathon.
The Derby Runner XC League is a closed cross-country league for invited clubs only, held on "traditional" cross-country courses over the winter months. Currently Ivanhoe Runners members entry fees for these cross country races are paid by the Club, subsidised by the Ashby 20.
Ivanhoe Runners Grand Prix:
The Club hold an internal grand prix series each year, incorporating a variety of events over various distances and terrain.
The Adrian Smith Handicap:
Once a year the Club hold an internal handicap race, usually 10k in length, to compete for the Adrian Smith Trophy. Adrian was a founder member of the club who tragically died while competing for the Club, and all proceeds from this run are usually donated to the British Heart Foundation.
