Long Run (Sunday)

Sunday Morning Runs - 7AM & 8AM

These are steady paced runs, varying in distance depending on the time of year, on roads and parks and canal towpathways. Shorter runs will take place in Newham and the surrounding boroughs. Longer runs (winter months) will typically head west towards central London, or north / east towards Essex. Members are told in advance which route will be undertaken and the course description is reiterated before the session begins so that members can come prepared for the terrain and distance.

All runs will start and finish at Newham Leisure Centre - unless notified otherwise

Summer

Between May and October we typically have two training groups every Sunday. Runs will typically last between 60 and 90 minutes and cover a distance of between 6 and 10 miles.

7am - a faster-paced group for more serious training
8 am - a "social run" at a more leisurely pace

Winter

Between November and April we typically up the distance, and the number of training groups, as many of our members start training for full marathons and half marathons in the spring (including the London Marathon).

We have three training groups every Sunday. Runs will typically last between 1.5 hours and 5 hours and cover distances of between 8 and 22 miles (with shorter options for those training for half marathons).

7am - a faster-paced group for members aiming at running a sub 3hr 45min full marathon
8 am - a medium-paced group for members aiming at running a sub 5hr full marathon
8 am - a slower-paced group for new runners, or members aiming at running a full marathon in about 6 hours.

*Other Sunday runs may also be organised by members on a more informal basis.

Please note

ALL SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND FURTHER DETAILS WILL BE COMMUNICATED TO MEMBERS VIA OUR SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS EACH WEEK.
Here is a selection of some of the club's Long Run routes.
To ensure runners' safety and maximise training benefits, we recommend that those attending Sunday morning runs can already manage at least 8 miles at roughly 11 minutes a mile pace. For those not yet at this level, we encourage them 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.
