Barking Road Runners were formed in 1984 and are affiliated to England Athletics, the South of England Athletic Association, and the Essex County Athletic Association. We are a small, friendly club with around 100 members ranging from sub 3-hour marathoners to the more leisurely Sunday morning joggers.

The club meets at 6:45pm on Tuesday evenings at the Jim Peters Stadium in Mayesbrook Park, and on Thursday evenings at the Jo Richardson Centre (also known as Castle Green Sports Centre), Gale Street, Dagenham, Essex, RM9 4UN for group training sessions of varying pace and distance. Please check our diary page to make sure that we are not at an alternative venue such as Barking Park if you wish to come and join one of our sessions.

You will be more than welcome to participate in our Cross Country, Handicap and Grand Prix series of races, as well as the numerous social events held throughout the year. As a club affiliated to both SEAA and UK Athletics, we have guaranteed London Marathon places each year. The club welcomes all members regardless of race, religion, creed, or sex.

For further information, please either send an e-mail to us at, or call our captain Rob Courtier on 07840 653602.
