Running Club in Putney/SW London

Hi there, I am running the London marathon for the first time next year, and as much as I can run on my own, I have been told I need to do interval training and fartlek training in order to improve. My mum, who has run 4 marathons in the past, said she trained through a running club in Glasgow who really pushed her and improved her time dramatically. However, I can't seem to find a similar club in South West London. Can anyone help me please?



  • Come and join us in Run Club London, we train all over the SW in Earlsfield, Putney, Richmond, Clapham etc. We've pretty much got something going on around the capital 6 days a week with lots of speed and conditioning sessions plus long group social runs on the weekend building up to London/Paris/Brighton in April.

    Feel free to check out our website ( not I've heard Ealing Eagles are pretty good fun if you're over in that direction so lots to choose from.

  • Hi Victoria,

    I run for Clapham Chasers and we run a Tuesday track session and a Thursday interval session - usually around Battersea Park with a complete range of abilities. We set off on Mondays (social run) and Thursdays from the Nuffield Health Club gym relatively near Clapham Junction.


  • I can't believe you can't seem to find a similar club; having lived in greater London and studied in the north east have to say that south-west London has one of the biggest choice of running clubs. The atmosphere that you are looking for, convenient training times etc will dictate which suits you best. Google these:

    - Clapham Chasers (as stated above, based in Battersea Park)

    - Wimbledon Windmilers

    - Hercules Wimbledon AC (more track based than the above methinks)

    - Thames Hare & Hounds (Kingston way)

    - Stragglers (also more Kingston way)

    - Ranelagh (Richmond)

    Hope this helps!
