A very busy September for a number of our Runners, starting on the first Sunday of the month for Rob, running for Kebabs and rolling all the way through to the final Sunday of the month with half marathons for our runners, well it is known as sunday runday! Read more
When September arrives it brings a lease of life and motivation to get back to routine after a long (not so much in 2019) summer of fun.
We are currently on the look out for new members due to a couple of people heading away on their travels to explore and take Clapham Runners abroad.
If you are looking for a relaxed team to join, who will support your winter training and then on into summer, come and give our sessions a little trial, first few sessions are commitment/money free, see full details have a look at the try our sessions or membership pages.
Looking forward to seeing you soon
Firstly welcome to our new members;
Mohib, Charli & Marjike

Clapham Runners entered two teams for the Thames River Relay, an annual baton relay 26.2 mile race around Kingston and Surrey. It was a great team effort from both the reds and the greens, finishing 19th and 30th from the 51 teams taking part – and a brilliant day out! Huge thanks to Frank and Steve for organising so that we were at the finish line to see our teams finish!
