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 6.45pm, with the run commencing at 7.00pm. 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 Joseph Wright-Mullaney
October Runner of the Month - Joe Wright-Mullaney
Coming in off the back of 10k and Half Marathon PB's in September, Joe has continued to push and excel, racking up PB's almost every time he ran in October!
Starting with a parkrun at Markeaton, knocking nearly 30s off, he then went Rushcliffe and took another 30s off, to go under the 23 minute mark for the first time!
Then some travelling came in to play as the next one was up at Whitby, but again, he took another 30s chunk off that PB to get down to 22:13 and a decent 13th place finish. Travels then took Joe to Wales and the Pont y Bala parkrun, where he backed it all up with another low 22 minute clocking and a dizzying 7th place finish - just seconds off a full house of PB's.
In amongst all that, he also managed to get down to Silverstone for a previously postponed 10k and easily went under 50 minutes for the first time - recording 48:51, to wipe out another 2 and a half minutes from his PB that was only set at Wilne, last month!
Safe to say it was an extremely busy and fruitful month for Joe.
Well done and keep it going - hopefully we'll see you transfer the form to the upcoming XC races!
*Allegations of Llama/big puppy assistance coinciding with this new speed, remain suspicious - but unconfirmed...
