Running for 100 years ...
What else was happening in 1913 (wikipedia.com).
come join us!
Eton Manor AC is one of the oldest running and athletics clubs in east London. Based in and around Leyton, we were originally from an area now within the Stratford 2012 Olympics site. We're not big but we are friendly, and welcome runners and athletes of all ages and standards, from absolute beginners to up-and-coming elite.
As well as the Olympics site, we're lucky to have Hackney Marshes and the rest of the beautiful Lee Valley Park on our doorstep for training runs, and we run all year round. In the darker winter evenings we run together on well-lit routes around Leyton, Leytonstone, Clapton, Homerton and Walthamstow.
Many of us run purely for enjoyment or personal fitness goals, but if you do like to race, we compete against other clubs in the Chingford League, the Assembly League, and various Essex and other competitions. A number of these events have free entry for Eton Manor athletes.
Why not come along to one or two of our training sessions to see what we're all about?
