The London Youth Games is a multi-sport competition held annually between the 32 Boroughs of London, and ESM provides a significant proportion of the athletes representing the Borough of Ealing.

Herbert’s Hole 10K &#...

  Mark Kencroft writes: My second time running this ever popular multi terrain 10k event in Chesham. I met Martin Daoud beforehand and we did a quick check on the finish area pointing out the many rabbit holes on the finish approach. I was in two minds whether to wear my running trainers and to […]

Met League – Welwyn &...

Following the opening Metropolitan League fixture at Claybury in October, the outlook was pretty good for ESM senior men in Division One, reports Phil York. Sitting just above Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers and Trent Park Running Club, we found ourselves out of the relegation zone. Happy days! However, after Saturday’s trip to Welwyn Garden City, the […]

Road Round-Up – Rickm...

With cross country on the Saturday, some running marathons, (and others recovering from them), only four ESM-ers turned up for the normally popular Ricky Road Run. Martin Daoud reports: “It was nice meeting up with team mates Sarah, Gurmeet and Jenny at Rickmansworth. The weather was kind to us, from the start of the race […]

Liddiard Trophy (inc North ...

This fixture sometimes seems unnecessarily complicated, with two events rolled into one (some people entering one but not the other), and multiple team competitions for the men (six-to-score, eight-to-score etc). If you put all that to one side, though, it’s an enjoyable event that’s just up the road, which is probably why we go back […]

North West London League – ...

It was a sunny but cold day at Kingsbury for the second NWLL fixture, reports Bridie Lebdiri. Despite it being half term week we had a pretty good turnout of young athletes.
