Club History

The club was formed in 1984, as with many other road running clubs, in the wake of the birth of the London Marathon. Known for the first 8 years of existence as "The Embarrassed Joggers" and based at Woodside School, Plaistow.

A move to the track at Terence McMillan stadium in 1992 prompted a name change to the less self-conscious "Newham Joggers", and in 1994 East End Road Runners was born.
