Long Eaton 2

There is no 5 miler or Fun Run this year - we're taking a break and will be back in 2018

As well as organising the 5 Mile road race Long Eaton Running Club also hold a 2 mile fun run for the younger or beginner runner. The route is accurately measured and completely traffic free being set around the paved paths of West Park.
Entry for the fun run is always on the day so people can do it on the spur of the moment (Entries from 8:30 to 9:15). Although some local athletic clubs have a junior section of very good runners these entrants only make up around 10% of the total competitors and the vast majority of runners just have a trot around the park.

The course starts on the centre spot of the football field then heads north and west around the main park path. Once around on the north side of the park the route cuts across to the south side of the park on the first possible path then follows the outer path all the way around West Park until it reaches the rugby club where it runs along the football pitches goalline then right into the same finish funnel as the main 5 mile race.

Trophies will be presented at the start of the main race at 9:55 to the 1st boy and girl (under 17).

The course records are;
Female 12:41 Alice Daniel 2013
Male 10:17 Alfie Thompson 2014
