Founded in 1988. A jogging club to start with but over the years we have progressed to a full athletic and running club.
We have a membership of around 60 people split evenly between Men and Ladies . We have a thriving Senior and Veteran section who compete in various Track & Field leagues and the Essex Cross Country League. However, many members still prefer Road Races and Endurance Races. There is also a growing Walking Section developing within the club along with our new cycling section. All standards always welcome - It doesn't matter whether you're fast, slow, large or small, we'll look after you.
