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 6.15pm, with the run commencing at 6.30pm. 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 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.

Runner of the Month

Congratulations to Wade Fodden
A big shout out to the Runner of the Month for February 2024 – Mr Wade Fodden. Wade spent most of the month caked in mud, it would seem; not only does he have a pretty hefty off-road training regime, but he was also very successful in the tail end of the Cross Country season. That breaks down, just for February, as two East Mids races, at Colwick Woods and our own West Park, in P33 & P29 respectively, followed by a P18 in the final Derby Runner (formerly Booths) race at Holmebrook Park in Chesterfield – perhaps the most challenging course conditions of all, in a mostly submerged XC season. This last race was a significant factor in Wade’s subsequent 3rd place in category, when the DR league wrapped up in Ilkeston a fortnight later. Clearly Wade’s powers of recovery from the Chesterfield mud were good too – a week on and he rounded off his month’s racing in 31st overall and first VM45 at the Leicestershire Half Marathon, clocking a huge PB in just under 1H 22 minutes. In between all the running, Wade also makes a significant contribution to the club in our wonderful weekly roundups and special league race reports. These take a tremendous amount of time and effort to pull together, for which we’re very grateful. Thanks Wade and congrats on a sparkling (if slightly mud-spattered) month!
