Leicester Rowing Club
Wednesday night is our main club night when we meet upstairs at Leicester Rowing Club at 7:15 pm for announcements before heading out for a run at 7:30 pm. On your first visit, we suggest arriving around 7 pm to allow time for introductions, etc.
The rowing club was purpose-built with the help of sports council and lottery funding and opened in November 1996. It is just off Upperton Rd close to the junction of Western Blvd and the Swan Gyratory roundabout. The entrance is adjacent to the Liberty statue that used to stand on the old Liberty shoe factory.
There is off road parking both in front and behind the building although this can get busy. For cyclists there is a bike rack outside the Rowing Club; a good lock is recommended as the area will be unattended for most of the evening.
Being purpose built for sports, the rowing club has excellent facilities including changing rooms, showers, a large meeting room, a kitchen area for refreshments & snacks plus a bar.
Saffron Lane Athletics Track
On Mondays, members-only track training sessions are held at the Saffron Lane Athletics Stadium. They are ideal for runners looking to do speed training and improve their race times. The coached sessions are free of charge, but an admission fee is payable at the track to Leicester City Council.
