Clapham Runners

Small, friendly and fun running club based in Clapham/ Battersea with members of all ages, abilities and experience


Clapham Runners is a small, friendly club set up in 2005 with members of all abilities, ages and experience. We are not necessarily ultra competitive but we are all there to improve speed and endurance. Club running keeps it fun!

We meet three times a week – Tuesdays are interval sessions on Clapham Common and Thursdays are speed work and core training at Battersea Track. Most Saturdays you will find several of us at parkrun too (club favourite is Tooting). All are welcome to any session – there’s no obligation to join, it’s about liking how we train – but come regularly, and you will start running faster.

The weekly coached session (Thursdays) is led by Jon Munroe, a qualified trainer and former Commonwealth long jumper. Many of us run in the spring marathon season, and other events throughout the year from 10kms to trail running and the Thames River Relay. The training and coaching caters for all-comers and interests as well as those recovering from injury throughout the year.
