Running courses

beginner runners stretching on the CommonFrom outside the Windmill Cafe on Wimbledon Common, we offer running courses for beginnersimprovers and social runners and weekly social runs - during the week, usually straight after school drop off and in the evening. We also offer one-to-one training for those who may not want to be part of a group or who would like some tailored training.

The running classes are women-only and for all ages and abilities. They take place during term-time and exclude school holidays, making them ideal for mums, homeworkers and retirees. Ad hoc classes are available in the holidays, subject to demand.

New running courses started on Monday 8 January 2018 and there is some availability. Classes take place on Wimbledon Common on Monday morning, Tuesday morning & evening, Wednesday morning (social run) and Thursday morning.
