Social runners

beginners running on the Common

Our spring/summer social runners’ course started on Thursday 19 April 2018 and there is some availability. Classes take place on Wimbledon Common on Thursdays, 10.30-11.30am.

A new social runners’ running course starts on the 13 September 2018.

Running course details

If you can run steadily for about 20 minutes and would like to continue running in a low-key and fun way to keep fit and build your confidence, then this is the course for you.

  • We review technique, pace, breathing, injury prevention, stretching and rest and recovery
  • We include some fun strength exercises within the run to improve your fitness
  • We may include some speed, hill and endurance work in a light-hearted and encouraging atmosphere
  • We encourage you to do other runs and exercise throughout the week as part of an overall fitness plan

Before starting this course, you’ll need to be running for a minimum of 20 minutes continuously as this will aid your enjoyment and progress. However, you don’t need marathon ambitions to join, only a desire to get up and run and enjoy the beauty of Wimbledon Common! Please see how to prepare for your course.
