October 2023: BDSL success!

The club has enjoyed great success in the Burton and District Summer League competition this year. After all eight events, our men’s and women’s teams both finished in 4th place overall.

We are also delighted to share that, following consistently high event attendances, LRC received the Roland Gibbard Team Trophy, awarded to the club with the greatest increase in participation compared with the previous year. Furthermore, club member Sonia Short was one of the recipients of the special ‘All Eight’ award, in recognition of competing in the seven qualifying races – Run in the Forest, Washlands Relays, Uttoxeter Half Marathon, Gate Gallop 10k, Worthington Six Mile, Burton 10k, Tamworth Five Mile – as well as marshalling at our own event, Lichfield 10k.

Club representatives John, Ed, Owen and Sonia attended the league presentation eventing on Friday, October 13th to celebrate the season’s success and to receive the team trophy. Thanks to everyone who helped us win the trophy by representing LRC at this year’s events. And a special ‘well done’ to Sonia, keep up the good work!

You can see them celebrating below. We’re looking forward to the next season already!
