Wednesday evening run and social beer!


As some of you may be aware, we have had some problems with using the left luggage facility at the National Theatre in recent weeks when they have been especially busy. We are trying to arrange a solution with the South Bank Centre management, but until this is sorted, we can't guarantee bag drop facilities will be available. So, if possible, please come in your gear ready to run. Regular runners may have running backpacks and can offer to carry small items such as keys or phones.

We hope to have a solution as soon as we can. 

Join us for our weekly evening run and social beer. We'll meet outside the main entrance to the National Theatre ( they have a cloak room to leave bags) and we will try to leave between 7.00 and 7.05. The route is  just over 7k around the river with everyone doing their own pace (from sub 7 minute miles to 11-12 minute miles) so we welcome all levels of runners. Usually we have a big group so most people will find someone of their pace to buddy up with. If you don't fancy doing the whole 7K run there are also lots of short cuts. After the run we all meet up and go to the royal festival hall for a couple of beers.

If you can't find us or you're running late you can phone or text Vivek[masked] Alison[masked] or Becca[masked]

    Hi Everyone - does this run take place regardless of weather?

      Yes...the only thing to stop the run would be ice and generally if it freezes the centre of town is ok

    Hi! I'm very much a beginner runner, do you think this run would we be suitable? I've only managed a 5K so far - thanks!

      Hi Lucy - the full distance is around 4.5 miles (7k). If you don't want to go as far as that it is possible to cut the distance shorter by crossing the river at one of the earlier bridges. If you talk to one of the organisers at the start we can let you know the options.
