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 Lee Allsop
Please enter reason hereSeptember's runner of the month is a relative newcomer to LERC, but someone who has made a big impression. Lee only joined in April after inadvertently joining in on one of our 5 mile time trial runs, whilst out on a solo run. He enjoyed running with others so much, he joined almost immediately. Anyone who knows Lee, will know his background of charity running over the marathon distance and the inspirational transformation he has made in his life. You will also probably know Lee's recognisable style of a buff and his headphones - although I'm not sure if he's ever actually listening to anything with his sociable and supportive nature! Lee has been asset to the club and this has been highlighted through September, as he formed part of a great group of LERC'ers, who worked together and supported each as they strode towards their respective goals. Results-wise, Lee had a great September, starting off with a PB at the Wilne 10k, just missing on a sub 43 clocking by an agonising 3 seconds. Lee then went on to finish 36th at the Draycote Water 20 miler, in a very respectable time, before smashing the Robin Hood half and knocking a few minutes of his previous best, despite the poor weather conditions! Congratulations Lee and keep doing what you're doing 💪 *Lee has since completed his Chester marathon, despite picking up an injury on his way around. Trooper.
