We’re always pleased to welcome new members or runners wanting to try us out. There is usually a mix of abilities in the group. A bit of friendly competition always helps to push you to improvement!

Thursday Sessions – 7.30pm at Battersea track (coached – speed, strength and endurance)
Location: Battersea Millennium Arena track
Involves: Coached session with Jon Munroe usually consisting of shorter intervals specifically for speed work. Sessions tend to focus on repeated 1-400m distances with timed rests in-between. Jon will ensure you are in an ability focused group so your speed and recovery are effective for improvement.
This session is followed by a strength and conditioning circuit.

You can also find us on Saturday’s (parkrun)
A number of our members meet on a Saturday at various parkruns across South West London – some for a social run and others to drive towards that 5km PB, generally rewarded by a warm drink and a cake afterwards.
There are free parkruns all over London – our members are most often running or volunteering at Tooting, Brockwell Park and Dulwich. See www.parkrun.co.uk for registration details and to print your barcode.
