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.

The next event in the calendar is : Winster Hill Race

19:00, Winster
Details: The Hill Race forms part of the Winster Wakes week long festival. Our race is an 'undulating' 4 miles using the lanes, trails and fields around the village. The course is marshaled at all the junctions and partially marked up. Its suitable for all levels of runner, challenging for the experienced runners and a great introduction to hill running for new runners.
Entry: Online Entry HERE . Race Limit of 150. On the Day Entries availability will be updated when on line entry closes 26/06.
Price: £5 (100% of all profit goes to Winster Wakes Carnival fundraising)
Start: Main Street, Winster, DE4 2DG
Distance: 4 mile
Climb: 581 ft
Terrain: Lanes and fields
Route Description: The route will be marshaled and partially marked.
You have a fast opening mile where you can challenge your 1 mile PB. We then hit the 1st bump of the day. A few rolling fields to recover and a drop back down before the bit mean Dudwood climb takes you back above the village. The final 800m is a mad dash downhill through the village and ending a few meters before the beer garden.

Runner of the Month

Congratulations to Janine Barrowcliffe
Our runner of the month for April is a relatively new member, as Janine only joined LERC in October, but in 6 months, she has quickly proved to be a key member of our improving womens team, consistently turning out to road, XC, fell & team events and performing brilliantly within her V50 age category. This was shown most recently at the Tissington Trail Marathon, which was her first marathon in LERC colours, with Janine finishing in 4th place and top V50, comfortably inside the 4 hour mark too. This was more impressive given she did the Boston half marathon just 6 days before and only just missed a podium there too.
Janine was also one of our team counters in the BDL race at Teversal, which was vital in us securing top spot of the combined male/female team standings – a LERC first! She also sits 2nd in her age category standings and we wouldn’t beat against her bringing home some silverware there, or anywhere else this year!
Well done Janine, keep it going!
