Interested in running with us?

The UK Government has announced new COVID-19 restrictions and  UK Athletics has revised the guidance for athletics and running. This new guidance will apply from 5 January 2021.

As a result of everyone being required to stay at home, except for specific purposes as outlined by the Government’s guidance, we have suspended organised club runs until further notice. BUT

  • The UK Government has confirmed that individuals can exercise with one other person either from their own household OR outside their household. This is limited to one occasion per day and the individual should not travel outside of their local area
  • Virtual training sessions can be delivered by qualified coaches
  • Virtual competitions can still take place. Click here for a list of virtual road races
  • England Athletics will continue to coordinate the Weekly 30

In normal times, every week we have a number of different days which we run and with each run, we try and vary the route to keep things interesting. We use a number of different trails around the Surrey, Sussex and Kent countryside and a mixture of road as well as trail/off-road.

We meet in all weather, come rain, snow or shine, usually at the Victoria Sports and Social Club in Lingfield.

Tuesday

7pm. This is normally a 5-7 miles run. Usually trail based in the light summer evenings and road during the darker winter nights.

Wednesday

6.45pm. At Imberhorne School, East Grinstead. This is a shorter, faster session on tarmac (in winter) for beginners and those who want to improve. Well-lit road and/or playground during the darker winter nights, and grass track/trail when conditions allow.

Thursday

7pm. This is a similar run to the Tuesday meet.

Saturday

9am. A group meets on a Saturday to run a variety of routes, but usually for a longer distance. Starting from about 8-10 miles.

10am. Another group meets on a Saturday at 10 and runs a 4-7 mile route.

We are also regular supporters of East Grinstead parkrun and Tilgate parkrun.

The Victoria Club opens at 11am, which means runners can then meet for a drink and a Kit Kat.
