We are an all women's running club who run for "Fun, Fitness and Friendship". The club was founded in 1993 and is open to all women from the age of 16+. Members meet on a Wednesday night in and around the King's Lynn area.
Our group is made up of mixed ability runners who run for fitness and to meet others of a like mind. We run in small groups, matching running speed and distances. On a typical Wednesday night some members do a gentle run of 2-3 miles while faster and endurance groups can run up to 6 miles round the town during the winter. In the summer we travel out of town to local beauty spots and run following trails and paths.
If you are new to running and want to join us why not visit our Beginners page for more details. We are running a new beginners course in February 2018, see the Ladybird News 2018 and Timetable pages for more details. But please contact us on the email below if you are already running a bit, no matter how slow, as you may be fine joining in with the main group.
Some women may feel threatened by running with men who are often more competitive. Being in a club encourages motivation and confidence.
Annual membership of £2 on joining then payment for weekly runs is 50p per session. From this money the club insures all its members.
Lynnsport Ladybirds has helped women in the Lynn area get fit and make friends since 1993.
Started originally as a Reebok Running Sisters group the group changed it's name and with encouragement from the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk Council began running beginners courses. Currently the club has over 100 members with anywhere between 20-30 attending weekly runs, this changes depending upon individual commitments.
Members take part in a number of local runs such as the Run for All Grand East Anglian Run, Race for Life, Peterborough Half-Marathon, Cambridge Half-Marathon, Great North Run and many more organised events.
We organise a number of social events during the year, for example our New Year meal and at least one barbeque to allow our members to get together and have a good catch up session.
Our AGM is held in September each year and new ideas can be raised and voted upon by all members.
