Sunday Social Runs

In line with England Athletics requirements, all organised athletics activities (including formal club training sessions) are suspended until 31 May.


On Sundays we train from the Wimbledon Common Windmill.

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

And if you're looking for a longer run, why not run to the Windmill first, and join the 7 mile group?  

If you want to join any of the coached runs, please turn up in time for a 10am start at the Windmill car park - you'll see a bunch of runners outside the café or on the grass. We 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 end up back at the Windmill carpark and many runners stop for a coffee or bite to eat at the café to catch up on the gossip. This is a chance to have a chat to coaches or other runners if you have questions or suggestions on training, races or kit.
