Sessions and Socials

Please note our clubhouse and running sessions are currently operating under special measures due to government restrictions. For our road runs there is a spreadsheet booking system to limit numbers, for track sessions there is a survey system.

If you would like to come for a run please join our Facebook groupand/or sign up to our newsletter and then put your name down to run. Please bear with us while we have to operate this way, and hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.

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. Due to COVID we now have a booking system, and groups of 6 leave every 10 minutes from around 6pm to 8pm. To sign up see the spreadsheet that comes out on Facebook and the newsletter every week. 

Thursday – River Run

Pre-Covid our Thursdays were for interval training but during the pandemic we launched a river run instead.  Due to COVID we now have a booking system, and groups of 6 leave every 10 minutes from around 6pm to 8pm. To sign up see the spreadsheet that comes out on Facebook and the newsletter every week. 

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. Again, due to COVID we operate a booking system. Runners are able to book onto a group of 6 and these leave every 10 minutes from 9am to 11am

 

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. There are currently sessions at 6.30pm and 7.45pm, and these must be booked onto to limit numbers due to COVID.

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, theatre trips, a regular pub quiz, running holidays and trail runs!

A (pre-pandemic) club social!
