Long Eaton Running Club

Long Eaton Running Club is a friendly running club with over 200 members.

We are a diverse group. We have notable success in helping to get people in the local area running through the Couch-to-5k programme, we are enthusiastic supporters of our local parkrun, and we are very successful in local competition.

Club nights are on Tuesday and Thursday each week; meeting at West Park Leisure Centre from 6.45pm, with the run commencing at 7.00pm. There are usually at least two options for distance and, if you are new to the club, you will be paired with a similar-paced runner to make sure you don’t get lost.

We offer FREE trial membership for 4 weeks. So; if you fancy a run with us, just drop us a message to let us know you will be coming along and then make yourself known when you arrive.

To get a feel for what the club is like ahead of your visit, please take a look around this website or our public-facing page.

Runner of the Month

Congratulations to Peter Edmonds
April Runner of the Month

April saw the return of some actual proper races, as well as the start of our intra-club events. After 18 months, it's not really a surprise that there were some incredible performances across a range of distances.

No-one typifies this more than our Rotm Pete Edmonds, who has trained relentlessly over a long period of time, waiting for this opportunity. Pete has regularly clocked 50 mile plus weeks and eagerly participated in club nights and other events that have been put on over time.

April specifically Pete near enough trained as a pro athlete, with his mix of mileage and sessions, including an impressive individual 7 loop effort of Hayworth Hill! This all culminated in Pete smashing over a minute and a half off his recognised 5k PB at the LERC return event, coming home in 22:31.

Justifying his selection further, Pete has also since ran a One Mile PB at the club Bannister Mile races!
Top work Pete!

Other noteworthy performances from April saw August's Rotm Anthony Hatswell run 2:30:52 for a Marathon and 32:23 for 10k to put him 3rd and 6th on the clubs all-time records lists; Stacey Sangster won the 'Beside the Seaside' HM; Darlington and Jeff Trybus both PB'd at Prestwold and Tatton Park HM's respectively; and Ian Chant ran a brilliant 5k at Prestwold to rank him 29th V50 in the UK this year!

A cracking start to the year's racing.
