Sessions are open to all abilities and full details of what to expect on any given week can be found in the links below: 

  • Sunday Long Run: A morning run of between 1.5 and 2.5 hours, built around the spring and autumn marathon seasons  
  • Monday Club Run: A run of between 8km and 10km, with a dedicated novice group (nobody gets left behind - guaranteed) and a variety of pace groups to cover all range of abilities.  A good session to attend if you're new to the club or want to try a session before joining.
  • Tuesday Track: A great session to build up your speed and bring down those PBs
  • Wednesday Hills: Ideal for working on endurance and power, just as applicable to road racing as XC.  The sessions vary week to week, and include long gradual hills, as well as shorter sharper reps. Never be intimidated by hills again! 
  • Thursday Tempo: Laps of Battersea Park have never been so good! A session focused on building stamina and speed endurance. Please refer to the club's Facebook forum for details of each week's session
With the race calendar busy year round and events being common in Battersea Park, sessions can shift so please keep an eye on the Club's Facebook forum for changes.  This is also the best place to find other Chasers heading to an event in your diary and whether there is something else - a trip to the North Downs for some scenic trail running (and cake!) anyone? 


To put all that training to good use we collectively participate in a wide range of running disciplines including:

  • Road Running: This is where we started and it continues to be the main focus for the majority of our runners. Outside of marathon season, we participate in the South of England Athletics Association Road Relays and the Surrey Road League
  • Cross Country: We love XC and there are few events on the calendar which attract bigger turnouts than these. The Chasers are known for their great team spirit and there's always plenty on display at these events 
  • Trail Running: We're one of the few running clubs in London with a dedicated and rapidly growing trail section. If you fancy leaving the big smoke behind and sampling some of the country's finest scenery with some great people then this is for you
