We are a small, friendly, Essex based running club, affiliated to the Essex Amateur Athletic Association
and to the Southern Counties Athletic Association, The Eastern Region of England Athletics,
the Long Distance Walkers Association and Registered with the Trail Running Association.
Our aim is to promote running for sport and pleasure, in all its forms, and to give help and encouragement to all,
irrespective of their ability and we welcome second claim runners (unlike some other clubs)
At present we have 98 members. Our ages range from 10 - 70. We have runners of all standards, from occasional joggers to competitors of a high standard. There is no commitment from you to the club, the club exists for you! To give you the opportunity of running when, where and how you want with like minded people. We take part in all types of competitions, fun runs, local road races, county, regional and national championships. We run on the Road, Cross Country, Fell, Track and Trail. We have our own club kit, in silver and black, for team events.

We enter teams in three cross country leagues during the winter. As a club we promote cross country and trail races. In addition we also hold some fun events during the summer, last year we had relay races, hilly handicaps and a water collection relay! Our members took part in literally hundreds of races last year, frequently sharing cars to events to support each other.
We meet on Wednesday evenings for a social off road run (light permitting), during the summer at various country pubs. We also meet regularly on Saturday morning at 8:00 am for a cross country run. Our members can be found running somewhere every day. regular wednesday, thursday and saturday meeting details are elsewhere on the website, just ask if you want company on a particular day. At all sessions no-one is left to run alone.
We also meet from time to for purely social events, for example in recent years we held a Christmas Dinner, a quiz night, an evening at Romford Dogs and a day at Epsom Races.
