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 Christopher Magee
September Runner of the Month - Chris Magee.
We recently posted the incredibly moving story behind his Coast to Coast run (if you haven't seen, please do take the time to look back for it) and the awesome fundraising that came from it, but even just looking at it as a running feat, this was a phenomenal achievement.

Some of us have recently smashed great marathon performances and done some mind boggling long runs - I still see anything over 13 miles as a really long way - but Chris and his team were completing 30+ miles a day, for 6 days in a row!

They literally ran from one side of the country, to the other! I think if anyone told me they had drove that, my reaction would be 'crikey, that's a fair trek, how long did that take?'... to do it on their feet, in less than a week. Just wow.

So another massive well done to Chris, hopefully you've been able to put your feet up for a bit since and recover!
