Sessions and Socials

Update 27th March 2021: Our clubhouse and running sessions are currently closed but will be reopening as government restrictions lift. Our weekly track sessions will resume on Wed 7th April and our road running sessions will resume from Tue 13th April. These will operate via a spreadsheet booking system to limit numbers. If you would like to access the sheets please join our Facebook group and/or sign up to our newsletter and we will update these in the following week.

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.

 

Sessions

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 6.30pm-9pm. Sessions are delivered and designed by our qualified run leaders under the guidance of EA coaches. 

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 came 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. Once things return to normal our socials will be back. These will include parties in the clubhouse, trips to other London venues, races, a regular pub quiz, and running holidays.

A (pre-pandemic) club social!
