For the 2020 Summer season, Lichfield Running Club has joined the Burton and District Summer League. The League races have mainly been incorporated into the Grand Prix series, with one race in the Off Road series. The aims of entering the League are to provide more opportunities for runners to compete with other clubs and to provide some new events to incorporate into the club competitions.
The Burton and District Summer League was established in 2005 to encourage friendly rivalry between running clubs in the Burton area. There are eight other clubs in the League South Derbyshire Road Runners, Uttoxeter Road Runners, Burton Athletics Club, Washlands Women Runners, Peel Road Runners, Ivanhoe Runners, Hatton Darts and Tamworth Athletics Club. The League races cover a variety of distances, from 5 miles to half marathon.
For 2020 the League races are:
- Conkers 5 miles
- Uttoxeter Half Marathon
- Burton 10 mile – now cancelled
- Washlands Relays
- Gate Gallop 10k
- Worthington 5 miles
