Get running in Victoria Park with a Leicestershire Local Run

Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport (LRS) have organised another Leicestershire Local Run, as part of the Run England initiative to get the whole nation running.

Local runs are guided by friendly Run England Run Leaders along scenic planned routes. Everyone is welcome to join in these fun led runs and discover some of the best places to run in Leicestershire.

All runs take place on a Sunday morning at 10am and cost just £2 per person (car parking charges may apply for some locations). Run Leaders will accommodate runners of all abilities and runs will last for no more than one hour or 5 miles in distance. Shorter distances will be available for beginners.

Book online at www.lrsport.org/running to reserve your place.

  • Victoria Park, Leicester, Sunday 18th August, 10am, meet at the park Cafe.

Beverley Hooper, Recreational Athletics Activator said, "Running in a group is a fun way to exercise. Our qualified run leaders will ensure everyone is welcome and will show people some great places to run."
