December RotM - Mark Fisher
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 Mark Fisher
December's runner of the month was a very clear and easy choice. It was a month where most of us eased off a bit, with Christmas on the horizon, hard lockdown hitting and some awful running conditions.
Mark though, went the other way and pushed himself as hard as he's ever done, with a rugged determination and aim to PB at every distance in 2020. A Boxing Day 5k PB came down the Wilne, including an out and back turn point, this gave Mark a 19:31. Even more impressive was that this was his SECOND 5k PB of the month, beating a 19:38 he'd set a couple of weeks earlier...
There's was a Half-Marathon PB of 1:28:48, which also included a 10 mile PB, helped by a very strong and large pacing group, back in the days when we could see other people!
To finish it all off, Mark also ran a 10k PB just before the month ended, again aided by some LERC club-mates. A 41:03 PB was a great reward and the icy conditions mean there's probably more to come off that soon too!
