Ivanhoe Runners Membership Details


ALL ABOUT IVANHOE

Founded in 1985, we currently have a membership of over 150 of all abilities. Anyone competing in local events is guaranteed to see our trademark sky-blue vests taking part. We compete in a variety of events on the road cross-country and the track too, across several leagues and hold our own grand prix series. Many of our members are keen parkrunners running locally at Conkers, Rosliston and further afield.

We run a standards award scheme which all members can have a go at, and these fabulous achievements are recognised at our annual celebration evening.

But we're not just about the running! Our social events are big highlights, with quizzes, BBQs, beer and cheese evenings, pizza nights, trips to races, our marathon cake night, and the incredible annual Awards Night just to name a few.

We organise the very successful Aldi Ashby 20 Road Race, held every year, ahead of the London Marathon.

As an Ivanhoe Runner, you're registered with UK Athletics, securing you reduced race entry fees and insurance cover for racing and training.

Wednesdays are our dedicated evenings for a weekly speed or hill session. These are great for improving your running, whether you're wanting to better your race times, get fitter, or join in for fun.

The option to complete a group run is also available, run leaders catering for a wide range of abilities, and club nights often consist of many different paced groups, ranging from over 10-minute milers to sub 6-minute mile runners. We will run routes that can have cut off points from 3 to 10 miles during the winter and various different distances on a variety of fun routes over the summer (often finishing at the pub!).

In the winter, we meet at our usual training venue, Hood Park Leisure Centre, Ashby. In the summer we mix up our locations, meeting at various local scenic spots such as Hicks Lodge, Sence Valley and Albert Village Lake. Runs start at 7pm. 

If you're interested in joining us then please do ask any of our club members you see at races, find us on Facebook, Instagram, drop us a message via the Contact section, or check out the location of week's run to come and join in.
