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 Stephen Horton
A splendid period of form, has culminated in an awesome November for Steve.
His 10k PB was smashed at the Pudding Run 10k, with nearly a minute taken off, recording an impressive 38:32. More impressive was that his previous PB was only set in October and that itself was a sizeable best! Steve was also part of the winning LERC men's team at this race!
Steve also made the men's team at the BDL XC at Chaddesden Park, finishing as our 5th man in 34th place, helping us move to the top of the overall series.
A final showing from Steve, came at the Derby 10, where he was just outside of an hour - but taking a remarkable FIVE minutes off his previous best time.
Steve also celebrated his birthday this month and had a special visit from Denise Lewis, who must have known this award was coming... 👀
Well done Steve 💙
