Long Eaton Running Club

At Long Eaton Running Club, we cater for all ages and abilities, from the 12 minute miler to the 12 miles an hour athlete. We run on Tuesdays and Thursdays, meeting at 6.30p.m. for an optional warm up session then start running at 7pm. We organise at least 2 different distances to cater for different abilities & if you are new a LERC member will stay with you so you won't get lost. After training, a few of us always go for a beer or two at a local pub, so please join us for a chat. Have a look around our site and if you fancy a run with us why not pop along one club night. We don't bite.

Runner of the Month

Congratulations to Laura Froggatt
A LERC member for nearly a decade, Laura is a regular at club nights and has tried her hand at everything and anything over the years. Her preference for finding longer distance races and unusual/difficult challenges, sometimes means that her ability and achievements go under the radar. Despite going strong for so long, October proved to be a very successful month for Laura with a parkrun PB of 24:39 at Long Eaton, also finishing as top V40. Laura then went up to York, to take on the 10 mile race and again set another PB, taking nearly 6 minutes off her previous best, which was set on the same course last year. To finish off the month, Laura also travelled with a select band of LERC'ers to enjoy the Cannock Chase Half marathon, in less than ideal conditions. Well done Laura!
