PUBLISHED: 12:00 22 May 2016
The club was founded in 1990 and from its base in Hornchurch offers a friendly and supportive home for adult runners aged from 18 to 80-plus, and of all abilities.
Press officer Jeff Fenton said: “As the better weather approaches, we encourage people to join us to become fit and healthy. All abilities are welcome, so if you’re looking to run a marathon or just start running, you’ll find people to run with.”
The club, which meets twice a week, offers an informal structure where experienced members provide support and advice to novices and those looking to improve.
Jeff said: “People get to know their ability and go out with similar people. Sessions last about an hour and you can decide on the evening what you’d like to do.”
There is an active social programme, including curry evenings and quiz nights. Jeff said: “Members have recently run marathons in Rome, Manchester, London, Brighton and some people competed in more than one, so we can help you prepare for your race.”
When: Every Tuesday and Thursday evening, meet at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start. Sessions last about an hour. Some members also meet on a Sundat, locations change - check website for details.
