Thanks for visiting Eton Manor AC

About our group

Eton Manor AC is the running club for Walthamstow, Leyton and Leytonstone.

We are one of the oldest running and athletics clubs in east London, originally from an area now within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming of runners and athletes of all ages and standards, from absolute beginners to up-and-coming elite.

As well as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, 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, Assembly League, as well as regional and national races. A number of these events have free entry for Eton Manor athletes.

Our 0-5k programme is Love2Run, which runs once per year starting in January. It aims to take you from no running to completing a 5k distance in 9 weeks. The programme is suitable for anyone aged 16+ who is either a beginner or returning to running. We offer you the opportunity to run in a safe and sociable environment while running/jogging with others of a similar ability. All our sessions are led by qualified run leaders and assistants and are free to take part in.

If you can comfortably run 5k already, then why not come along to one or two of our training sessions to see what we're all about?

Young athletes (10-17 years old) meet Mondays at 6.15 pm at Walthamstow Feel Good Centre, 170 Chingford Road, Walthamstow, London, E17 5AA (map).  Not just running!  Youngsters receive coaching in all disciplines from our UKA-qualified, CRB-checked coaches, and compete in local leagues.

Senior athletes (18 years and onwards) meet Tuesdays and Thursdays 7.00 pm onwards for 7.30 pm at The Cottage, Marsh Lane, Leyton, London E10 7BL  (map).
