Burton and District Summer League

For the 2024 Summer season, Lichfield Running Club will once again be competing in the Burton and District Summer League; the League races have been incorporated into the Grand Prix 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.

  • Conkers Run in the Forest
  • Uttoxeter Half Marathon
  • Washlands Relays
  • Gate Gallop 10k
  • Worthington 6 mile run
  • Burton 10k
  • Tamworth 5 mile run
  • Tara Kinder 10k

The League awards a range prizes for individuals and teams which will be presented at the Presentation Evening in October.

We are delighted to announce that Lichfield Running Club received the 2023 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, as well as marshalling at our own event, Lichfield 10k.
