Training schedule | Running | Cycling | Swimming | Coaching | Coaching rota

We are a ‘running and multi-sports’ club, we run on Wimbledon Common, local quiet residential streets in the winter and the Wimbledon Park running track. Club sessions are designed to offer something for everyone throughout the week. Coached cycling and swimming sessions take place locally. Our sessions allow those who wish to run, cycle and swim for general fitness to do so without pressure, and those who wish to develop their performance are given the support they need to do so.
