Our races are entirely organised and marshalled by volunteers from our club. As much as we love our athletes training and racing together, supporting the club is equally important. We do ask all LFTC members to volunteer at our own club organised races throughout the year to make them a success. If you would like to help at any of the races, please email and let us know to
