What's on during Coronavirus?

Joining

Regent's Park 10K

We do not know whether it will be possible to run any of our regular Regent's Park 10K races. Rather than take entries for races that may not happen, we have set up a mailing list that you can sign up to so that you are informed once entries open and get priority entry.

We are looking into the possibility of organising alternative events designed around social distancing.

You can sign up for this mailing list here.

Welfare

Ouf welfare office, Laurie, is acting as club coronavirus officer. She is the person to contact if you have any questions about our club's approach to coronavirus or if you fall ill and need to inform people you have run with. You can contact her here.

Volunteers

You can see who does what in the club using our Who's Who. If you would like to get involved in coaching, organizing events or helping running the club we are always keen to have new volunteers.


What happens at the club during normal times?

Training

Our biggest night of the week during normal times is Tuesday. Our Tuesday runs cater for a full range of abilities. As soon as we can we will start meeting again at the Talacre Center in Kentish Town. Once we can do that, you will be able to use the showers and lockers there.

Our Thursday runs will continue but without restrictions on numbers. These are coach led and are about improving as a runner. We believe that anyone can benefit from structured training. All members are welcome at every training session.

Our Sunday runs are organized using our Facebook group and our calendar. These are usually longer, slower runs than our midweek runs. They are particularly popular in spring when many members are marathon training.

To help you achieve your goals we have a large number of coaches and run leaders helping out with our beginners programme and our structured sessions. Following one of the schedules our coaches have put together is a great way to improve as a runner.

Racing

We participate in a huge variety of races including:

Runners of all abilities are welcome at all of these events. Check out our calendar to see what is coming up.

Social

We normally have tea and biscuits after our Tuesday runs. There are often fabulous home made cakes at races. We regularly meet up for other social events, most notably our monthly pub nights at Tapping the Admiral.

Kit

You get a free vest when you join. We only have limited access to storage at the moment, but our kit secretary hopes to advertise some times when you will be able pick up a vest via our newsletter.
