University Of East London, 4-6 University Way,
London E16 2RD
This was my first Run England group, which started in Sept 2011 for students at the University. At its height it attracted about 15 runners, but as student life is ‘seasonal’ the group numbers have fluctuated widely over the last 2 years. In 2012 the group was extended to also include staff and then lately also opened up to the general public.
The group trains alongside the docks at UEL in the Winter months and around the 700 metre trim trial in New Beckton Park in the lighter months. Current members regularly take part in 5K parkruns and 10k races and two are now in training for their first Half and full Marathons.
The group has set up its own 321 Run England marked route [signposted every 100 metres] along the docks at UEL.
