Full details for this Lutterworth run LWC5 race info 2017

The Lutterworth Charity 5 is a well-established run event that takes place on the outskirts of Lutterworth every summer. Proceeds from the event go to dementia related charities.

There are a few important points to bear in mind. Due to licence restrictions the minimum age of participants is 15. There is also a limit of 400 participants and these are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Sorry, but for this event, no dogs are allowed to take part.

The race was first launched in 2013 by Alan Slater, a local runner from Lutterworth, to raise money for dementia charities after his father lost a three year battle with the illness. Last year Race Harborough took over the organisation of the event and is delighted to be working with Alan to ensure the continued success of this Lutterworth run. .
