We are a small enthusiastic, friendly local running club, of around 130 members, established over 30 years, dedicated to encouraging fun and participation. We have a wide variety of members catering for all levels of runners from those looking just to get fit to the serious marathon runner.
Current lockdown rules allow us to train and run in groups of up to 6 people, but still maintaining a 2 metre gap from those you do not live with.
In line with this guidance we are now organising small group runs throughout the week which are booked and listed on our Club WhatsApp group. To join this group you must be a fully signed up member of the club.
Our usual run nights are Mondays and Wednesdays meeting at 7:20 pm for a 7:30 pm start on the gravel to the right of the exit for Crystal Palace Station, further details are on our ‘Location’ page. However at this time club run times and days may vary so please do not turn up to our usual meeting spot on Mondays and Wednesdays.
We will continue to review the situation and take any further changes to the rules from England Athletics and the Government into account. In the meantime, please stay safe and remember the club is always here to support you, so do keep in touch via our WhatsApp, Facebook and the virtual club social events.
Most of our members live in or around the Crystal Palace area and cover a wide range of ages, professions and nationalities.
Most joined the club on their own and as we run at conversational pace, it doesn’t take long to meet other members.
Although some of our members participate in races, including marathons, many are happy just to come running with a group of people, which is absolutely fine.
Total beginners and run/walkers are catered for and are always welcome.
