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. Ivanhoe Runners members entry fees for the winter races are paid by the Club, subsidised by the Ashby 20. 

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 League is a closed cross-country league for invited clubs only, held on "traditional" cross-country courses over the winter months. Again, Ivanhoe Runners members entry fees for these races are paid by the Club, subsidised by the Ashby 20. 


The Club hold an internal grand prix series each year, incorporating a variety of events over various distances and terrain.


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.
