Sessions and Socials

Update 7th Dec 2020: Please note our running club sessions and clubhouse are currently closed due to Tier 2 restrictions.

We continue to do whatever we can to keep the running spirit alive during lockdown with 2 exciting December events, our social media, our couch to 5k virtual support, and a virtual pub quiz! Keep on running, and bear with us as we’ll be back as soon as we can be

Our sessions meet at our clubhouse ( 130 Druid St, London, SE1 2HH ) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and at Southwark Athletics Centre (Hawkstone Road, SE16 2PE) on Wednesdays.


Tuesday Thames Run – 5k, 6k or 10k

Our most popular session!  Pre-Covid our Tuesdays regularly attracted over 100 runners of all abilities and many runners stayed for drinks afterwards. 

Thursday – River Run

Pre-Covid our Thursdays were for interval training but during the pandemic we launched a river run instead.  

Sunday Runs

Our Sunday road runs head East along the river. Most runners do a 10km option which stops midway for a photo near Greenland pier and then turns back to the venue. However some runners choose to run all the way to the Greenwich foot tunnel, over to the North side of the Thames and then west to Towerbridge. This is approximately 18km.

Track Wednesdays

Every Wednesday our club has exclusive use of Southwark Track from 7pm until 8.30pm. We have a session designed by our qualified run leaders. Please arrive at Southwark Athletics Track, Hawkstone Rd, London SE16 2PE in plenty of time for the session to start promptly at 7.15pm. Please note there are no changing facilities or running water at the track so please bring hydration and arrive changed. 

Simply AMAZING! Was so happy to find this group when I arrived in London. Great atmosphere and friendly people…

Club socials and races

The social element of London City Runners has always been as important as the running itself! Throughout the pandemic our volunteers have come up with ways  to bring our runners together virtually or in a socially distanced ways. Our activities have including small group runs, virtual pub quizzes, a virtual relay, and virtual workshops. The club has become a vital way of connecting for many runners, and we are keen to continue this into the difficult months ahead. Keep an eye on our newsletter and social media for details of upcoming events!
