Long Run (Sunday)

Sunday Morning Runs - 7AM & 8AM

Every Sunday the club offers a number of longer runs to cater for members of all speeds and ability levels. Typically four groups depart Newham Leisure Centre each Sunday – each accompanied by an England Athletics certified leader.

The runs take place on roads, parks and canal towpathways. Shorter runs will take place in Newham and the surrounding boroughs while longer runs will typically head west towards central London, or north / east towards Essex. All runs will start and finish at Newham Leisure Centre - unless notified otherwise.

Pace

We aim to offer our members a choice of four different paced groups each Sunday.

Time Pace
8am 7.5 min per mile Equivalent to a 5k in under 20 mins
7am 8.5 min per mile Equivalent to a 5k in 20-25 mins
8am 9.5 min per mile Equivalent to a 5k in 25-30 mins
8am Social Run (approx. 11 min per mile) Equivalent to a 5k in over 30 mins

Distance

Distances will be at least 6 miles and will change on a weekly basis. If members feel they cannot run the full distance they are encouraged to run with an Oyster card so they can cut the run short and return home at any point.
In the January – April period we step up the distance as many of our members start training for spring marathons. More information on marathon training with EERR is here.

Please note

ALL SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND FURTHER DETAILS WILL BE COMMUNICATED TO MEMBERS VIA OUR SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS ON A WEEKLY BASIS.
Here is a selection of some of the club's Long Run routes.
To ensure runners' safety and to maximise training benefits, we recommend that those attending Sunday morning runs can already manage at least 6 miles at roughly 11 minutes a mile pace. For those not yet at this level, we encourage you to first come along to some Tuesday night speedwork training or try some Run England sessions.
For the safety of all runners and to aid leaders whilst on the roads, we request that runners DO NOT wear headphones whilst on club runs.
