June Runner of the Month - Wade Fodden
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 Wade Fodden
Runner of the Month - Wade Fodden After just missing out on Runner of the Month twice already, including last month, Wade has continued his great form to be right in contention once again. This is no mean feat given Wade has only been a member for 10 months. Over the past 8 weeks Wade has set PB's for 5k, 5 miles, 10k, 10 mile and Half-Marathons, which is a truly remarkable achievement. Beginning with the Sinfin 10k, Wade produced performance and pace that nearly exceeded his 5k PB at the time, Just missing out on a sub 40 clocking and a top 20 finish. He did however claim a very creditable at Carsington 7+, earning LERC big points for the RunDerby Series. His next PB came at Trent 5, knocking over 3 minutes off his previous official best. Then came parkrun and a superb run at the end of June to smash his PB and claim a sub-20 timing for the first time. Moving onto June, Wade again showed progress at the wet BDL race at Denby, finishing in 82nd position, improving on previous positions of 118th and 103rd. Moving up the distances, Wade has also taken on the Notts 10 and Derby Half, recording PB's of 68:07 and 1:30:30 respectively. Finally, just as a bit extra and to prove how much of a team player he is as well, Wade volunteered to pace 22 minutes at Long Eaton parkrun and 50 minutes at the Nottingham 10k and led a number of other runners to PB's. With all of this awesome, consistent running, Wade currently sits top of the overall Summer League standings!
