Long Eaton Running Club


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 6.15pm, with the run commencing at 6.30pm. 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 David Sewell
March 2022 Runner of the Month - David Sewell
Dave is one of the regular faces of Long Eaton Parkrun and Junior Parkrun - with over 110 volunteer credits, and 149 runs to date. He started running in 2016, and joined Long Eaton Running Club in 2019, and since then his running has improved massively.
Never afraid to “have a go” at something, During 2020 he was ever present at the side of Aaran for his Marathonmania challenge, and really pushed himself at the lockdown challenges, having a go whatever the distance.
But it’s in the last 12 months that his improvements have been really showing. Since completing his first Marathon in October, his times have vastly improved, breaking 5K, 5 mile, 10K and half marathon PB’s consistently. He embraced Super Mario’s speed sessions, and now holds his own on a Wednesday too, helping and supporting others that cannot make the main session - thank you from the club for this!
Onto March, having just set a PB at the end of February at the Carsington 10K - where he had taken 2 minutes off his PB on a hilly course, he then smashed his 5K PB with a 20:56, taking 28 seconds off the PB he had already set in February.
He then finished the month at the Midland Counties Relay with a really strong run, whilst helping arrange the team ready for the day.
Huge well done Dave, we look forward to seeing even more improvement over the coming weeks, and enjoy your 150th parkrun!
