The Road Runners meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 pm. We are a friendly group catering for all abilities from beginners through to experienced runners, with an excellent social side. There are currently 8 different pace groups, so you will be able to find a group you can train with, whatever your goals.
In the winter we usually meet at the Eastbourne Sports Park, and run between 3.5 and 9 miles around the streets of Eastbourne, with interval training twice monthly. In the summer months we move our training sessions to the Downs. If you are considering coming along, please check where we are meeting on that particular day.
Our latest timetable can be found here.
Our bank of runs can be found here here.
In addition to the midweek training, many Rovers take part in the local parkrun every Saturday and regularly organise weekend training and social runs amongst themselves. We have a private Facebook group in which only members can communicate.
Whether you are running for fitness or training for a marathon (or beyond!), give us a try.

Road Runners compete in many events throughout the year from 5k to marathons and beyond. This year our big events are the Kent Road Runner Marathon where we have 20+ entrants, and Chocathon, a 6 hour endurance run where we have 20+ participants.
From November to February each year we compete in the East Sussex Sunday Cross Country League.
