The Club & Membership

About our Club

We are the only dedicated road running club in Newham. We are affiliated to UK Athletics and England Athletics (club registration code: 2659155). The mix of our growing membership reflects our location in one of the UK's most ethnically diverse communities. We pride ourselves on being one of the friendliest clubs around. Whatever your background or ability level you will always be welcomed with open arms at East End Road Runners.

Although the main focus of our club is road running, many of our members also enjoy participating in cross country runs, ultra marathons and triathlons. We also have active cycling and swimming sub groups that help members with their cross training and help injured runners back to run fitness.

As well as training together, we also regularly compete together on club trips away. In recent years our members have travelled to Liverpool, Sicily and Ljubljana In Slovenia for half/full marathons with a fun-filled weekend attached.

We also have a very strong volunteer culture. The club regularly volunteers at races across London. Members are rewarded with volunteer points which they can exchange for club kit, race entries or the opportunity to enter the ballot for one of the club’s guaranteed London Marathon places.
