October RotM - Paul Westby
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 Paul Westby
October Runner of the Month - Paul Westby.
A month that resembled some sort of normality, with a few races back on the calendar and our 'October Classic' keeping motivation levels up.
A full round up of the October Classic will follow, but one man who really took a liking to the challenge and excelled at every distance, was Paul. Paul astonishingly set a PB at all 4 distances, with a bonus PB with the club time trial 5 mile!
More remarkable is just how much time Paul has taken off each PB and off times that were reasonable anyway!
5k went from 24:16 to 20:59.
10k from 47:57 to 42:42.
10m from 1:20:40 to 1:09:19.
Absolutely incredible improvements on every metric!
Even more remarkable, is that he has done this whilst having treatment for something that *should* be making him fatigued.
Cracking effort Paul, well done!
