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 Alex Vize
January Runner of the Month - Alex Vize
Another eventless month passed us by, but still people were running hard and pushing themselves!
One of those was Alex Vize. Alex may not be known to many, but has been a LERC’er for 18 months now – just unfortunate that most of those 18 months we’ve been able to meet or race!
However, in that time Alex has taken the opportunity to attend the speed sessions put on and with some commitment and hardwork, shown exactly what can be achieved.
Beginning with a 5k PB of 20:42 (which is still his official PB), he’s taken chunk after chunk off that time.
The end of January saw another sizable chunk knocked off and another milestone reached, as he clocked 17:44, to go sub-18 for the first time!
This backs up a storming 10k PB set in December, with a 37:42 around the Wilne, taking 3 minutes off in just two months and a ridiculous 8 minutes off what his PB was this time last year!
The man is in form and flying, setting a great example to all of us.
Great work Alex – don’t know where these improvements will end, but we're looking forward to finding out!
