Sunday Social Runs

Due to Covid restrictions all coached training sessions currently require advance registration. Please go to the 'Calendar' or the 'Training Sessions' column on the right side of the screen to find the registration links.


In normal times the Sunday runs are as follows:

Sundays -  from the Wimbledon Common Windmill.

Coached Sunday runs - 10am: Coached runs start at 10am and include 3, 5 and 7 mile options. The 3 mile 'social run' is an ideal starting point (see the Windmilers Social Run, Sunday Morning Photo Story). Don't worry about being too slow - this session is for all abilities. 

If you are looking for a longer run, why not gently run to the Windmill first, and join the 7 mile group?  

If you want to join a Sunday run, please arrive by 10am at the Windmill car park - you'll see a bunch of runners outside the café or on the grass. We can get up to 100 runners in the summer, but generally it's around 50.

If you have any questions, please email and someone will get back to you.

Longer Sunday runs - 11+ miles - 9:30am: People doing longer runs start at 9:30am from the Windmill and range from 11 miles up to 21 miles. Some run 11, others will go longer if marathon training. There's a wide range of speeds but everyone starts off at a reasonably steady pace heading towards the towpath in Putney, where some notch up the speed. 

Note that these are uncoached sessions, and numbers of runners vary a lot according to the time of year.  Because of this, we don't recommend that you choose this as the first time you try the club - but if you do, we are a friendly club, and someone will help you get on the route!

Afterwards, Windmill Café. All the runs fiish at the Windmill carpark and many runners stop for a coffee or bite to eat at the café. This is a chance to chat with each other and to coaches or if you have questions or suggestions.
