About NEJ Running Club
Formed in 1987, NEJ are a well established running club, well equipped to cater for runners and joggers of all abilities. In addition to our running, we have a comprehensive programme of social activities throughout the year.
Our home is The Pavilion Sports and Leisure Club, 135 Footscray Road, Eltham SE9 where we meet up every Wednesday and Friday evening for a prompt 7pm start, where we like to mix our running schedules with regular fitness evenings with our qualified coach.
On top of this, if you like to take in the Kent country side, then why not join us for a nice social Sunday morning run at Honeydale Farm, Ruxley.

NEJ Summer cake run
Sunday 4th September
It’s back guys. The summer cake run will take place at Eltham Park South as usual. The run will start at 10.30am and then back to Pete and Sue’s place to enjoy obscene quantities of cake.
Please remember to bake a cake if you can and bring it along to Pete’s prior to the run.
The more, the merrier :-)
NEJ Suffer BIG defeat
Last Friday evening, NEJ came second in a one sided heavy defeat. Christchurch Football team, made up of 8 20-something year old cricketers destroyed us with both bat and ball. We were set a huge target of 104 runs to win. At one stage, we had lost 3 wickets for 14 runs (affectively, we were on minus 16). But we held our own, without losing another wicket, we managed to reach a respectable 56 runs, meaning, we were plus 26 runs at the end of our innings
Well done to all who took part. It was a great evening.
Thank goodness, it’s the end of the season
Summer BBQ at The Pavilion
Saturday 10th September
There are only about 25 tickets left for the summer BBQ, hosted by the Pavilion. This will be attended by all the clubs that use the Pavilion (with a large contingent from NEJ), so it promises to be a really fun night.
Tickets can be purchased at the bar. Adults £10 and children £6

Register now to avoid disappointment.
Not just a walk in the park!
Why not join…
Steve Freeman, who has kindly agreed to start a new walking group on Wednesday club nights from The Pavilion.
These walks will be ‘brisk’ and varied and are intended to suit those of us recovering from injury, not up to running or just fancy a walk to work up a thirst before retiring to the bar!
(And of course there’s the added appeal of Steve’s full repertoire of pathetic jokes).
If you’d like to join in please find Steve on a Wednesday night and give it a go.
Due to Pavilion licensing laws the Pavillion will be closed on Sunday 25th December 2016
Registering for upcoming events
Please note that if you want to enter any of the races stated in the events calendar, please ensure that you do so as early as you can, particularly the Grand Prix events to avoid disappointment, as many are filled very quickly.
