Training Sessions



Lancon CrestStructured, weekly Club Training Sessions no longer take place at HQ.


Traditionally, as the 'Club'is spread across Lancashire the Lancon AC members tend to train in their own time maybe in small, pre-arranged groups.


These can be arranged adhoc, aimed to develop all levels of runner including new or novice runners.

The sessions are for anyone at any level as the group all work at the same time but at their own pace and effort.

Anyone interested in resurrecting these 'informal sessions' then please contact Steve Broadbent. They can be at any site in Lancashire at any time or duration depending on choice.

Club London Marathon Places

2021 Virgin London Marathon

Lancon AC are allocated one London Marathon place each year. This is offered to someone who has been rejected in the open ballot and has competed and supported the Club in the previous 12 months.

Following discussion and consultation with key AC members the 2021 London Marathon place has been given to Simon Banfield. The marathon is hopefully taking place on 3 October 2021. Simon was rejected in the ballot and has supported the Club in reces in 2019 and early-2020.

The 2022 place has already been taken. This was awarded to Will Nelson in 2019 earmarked for 2020 LM that was cancelled. Will opted to defer it to 2022.

So the next available LM place will be for the 2023 event. To qualify for this runners will need to apply for the ballot that will be held sometime in 2022.
