Long Eaton Running Club organises 'The Nomad Ultra' each year - click NOMAD infofor more information

At Long Eaton Running Club (LERC) we acknowledge that, given the right encouragement, anyone is capable of running and, once established, can go on to run for the club in local competition, if they so wish. The club is a member of three seasonal leagues which means runners of all abilities have the chance to compete against runners of a similar ability from other clubs in the region.

Club nights are on Tuesday and Thursday each week; meeting at West Park Leisure Centre from 6.15pm, with the run commencing at 6.30pm. There is 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. The routes vary each week and are displayed on the calendar on the website. Club members also meet up at other times in the week to take on longer runs or speed sessions. Individuals tend to advertise these on the LERC Facebook page; so if you fancy joining in, just drop them a message to arrange a meet up.

The club is affiliated to England Athletics. In the Summer, we compete in the Notts’ Road Race League and the Derby Runner/BDL League. In the Winter, we compete in the North Midlands Cross-Country League, East Midlands Cross-Country League and the Derby Runner/BDL League. This gives our members that are affiliated to EA access to about 20 free races each year.
