Leighton Fun Runners meet every week on a Tuesday & Thursday Evening at The Cricket Clubhouse, Bell Close, Leighton Buzzard, LU7 1RX.  On a Tuesday night we run various distances in groups around the town and the local area.  On a Thursday night we hold a speed and stamina training session.  

Hello you crazy runners,


I trust you all have a smashing time over the Easter hols and had lots of choccy eggs...!!


3rd Leighton 20 Training Run
Sunday saw the Leighton Fun Runner’s 3rd Leighton 20 (and 13 mile) Training Run. 21 runners took part joining us from LFR, Amphill and Flitwick Flyers, Redway Runners and a few non-club members. An accumulative donation of £100 was raised for the clubs charity "Hearing for Dogs".

Well done to everyone who ran and thank you very much too all the volunteers who helped put on a successful event.Bank Holiday Run



A bevy of club members enjoyed the Bank Holiday Monday running around Ashridge, followed by some delicious hot chocolate (and a burger for some...yum yum), thank for organising Karen Kirwan.


Well done...

...to Glyn Raymen for completing his 7th Compton 40 run and to Jim Buttleman for taking part in the Compton 20 on Sunday.
...to the LFR ladies who attended the annual Chick Chase Race up at Caldcotte Lake on Wednesday. A big whoop whoop to Grace Gillen, Lindsey Rigby and Debbie Roff each for achieving a PB and a massive well done to Laura Thompson for coming 2nd overall.

And last but not least, a huge congratulations to all of the Couch 2 5K’ers who graduated on Tuesday. Plus, a massive thank you to everyone who came down and helped on a Monday to encourage and cajole and congratulate all the beginners; it doesn’t work without your support...☺
