July ROTM - Errol Flynn
At Long Eaton Running Club, we cater for all ages and abilities, from the 12 minute miler to the 12 miles an hour athlete. We run on Tuesdays and Thursdays, meeting at 6.30p.m. for an optional warm up session then start running at 7pm. We organise at least 2 different distances to cater for different abilities & if you are new a LERC member will stay with you so you won't get lost. After training, a few of us always go for a beer or two at a local pub, so please join us for a chat. Have a look around our site and if you fancy a run with us why not pop along one club night. We don't bite.

Runner of the Month
Congratulations to Errol Flynn
Another tough month passes and another tough month without all the social benefits we'd love to be providing. Although it has been incredible to see the support for Aaron's Half-Marathonmania, the event night 'races' and the litter picking at West Park.
Our runner of the month for July, is someone who has got involved as much as he can, as he always has done and has been in close contention for ROTM and other awards, on more occasions than I can remember!
Unbelievably, Errol has only been a LERC member for 18 months, but testament to what a top man he is and how much he gets involved, he's well known and well thought of, by pretty much everyone!
To those that are lucky to know him well, Errol inspires as he continuously overcomes the barriers that present themselves and comes out the other side. The man loves a challenge and July was no different after he came off the back of smashing half mile, 1k, 1 mile, 2 mile, 5k, 10 mile, 15k and HM PB's through the lockdown league period, to set more records... including his longest mileage week, clocking over 100 miles and that was with a day off too!
Errol's also took part in both event 'races', with a 15th on event 1 and a storming 6th place in event 2, after a great head-to-head with Anthony.
We know running and the running club is important to Errol and he's important to us.
