Our all-conquering Elvis League winners went to collect their silverware at the Elvis Awards night, hosted by H90 Joggers. Lee Kyson was kind enough to share some photos from the occasion. Well done to Jenny, Simon & Lee for their individual awards, and well done everyone for both our teams awards. UTM!
Eton Manor was represented by no less than 13 members at the 2022 London Marathon. Several cheer squads were on the route to support our runners. And didn’t they all do well! Some fantastic debut performances, and a couple of new PBs as well. UTM!

The final race of the 2022 Elvis League saw Eton Manor crowned champions in both mens and ladies team competitions. Jenny Heymann won the ladies competition, Simon Cottle was second in the mens, and Lee Milne won the ladies V40. From both race captains, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who took part in the league this year. Not just the speedy legs who scored the points; absolutely everyone who has been part of the club throughout the season. Every single one of you who has taken part in a race or training session has contributed to the clubs morale and confidence, which has been our trademark this year. We are only a little East London club, but we have always had a fantastic team spirit, and we are finally getting the success that spirit deserves. Congratulations one and all!
The Elvis awards ceremony is on Friday 21st October, details in the Elvis League facebook group. Please come along if you can, and share in the celebrations as we pick up our trophies! Up the Manor!!
On 19th June 2022 the Eton Manor Association Fun Run made a welcome return after a break of several years. This charity fundraising event was a collaboration between Eton Manor AC and Eton manor Rugby Club. A total of 59 participants ran the 2 mile course, the youngest being just 3 years old, and also featuring a camel!
There was a strong contingent from the junior section of the club in addition to senior members, rugby coaches & players, and runner from the local community. Everyone had a great time enjoying the facilities at the Rugby club, with an outside bar, BBQ and a bouncy castle.
The event raised over £400 for Haven House children’s hospice. Kind thanks to all the volunteers who helped host the event, and everyone who came to support. UTM!
