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.

Charity bike ride
Sunday 25 September
As most of you probably know, Russell and Gill Grant’s grandson Oliver has a terminal condition called Menkes. They are looking to raise funds on behalf of Oliver to buy much needed equipment such as a buggy adapted to his increasing needs, and are organising a charity cycle ride, of approximately 25 miles (with short cuts, if required) on Sunday 25th September. With a 10.00am start time. The ride will begin and finish at The Pavilion, in Footscray Road.
If you would like to take part and help this wonderful cause, it would be appreciated if you could make a donation of £10.
The Pavilion, have kindly offered to put on some food for us after the cycle.
If you don’t cycle, why not pop along at 1pm for a drink !! There will be a small raffle on the day also.
Further details to follow

Thank you for your support.
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
