Who can join?
With more than 800 members, there's a place for everyone in the Clapham Chasers - the club prides itself on being a sociable, inclusive and ambitious environment for members of all abilities.
We cater for a wide range of abilities from novice through to those aspiring for elite (national) standard, and pride ourselves on being inclusive, supportive and sociable.
Want to try before you buy?
New starters are welcome to come along to either one cycling or one running club session before joining. You can chose from cycling intervals (Tuesday evening or Thursday morning in Richmond Park) or a new members intro run a gentle 5km at Battersea Park on the first and third Thursday of the month.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book on to the Intro Run, and email@example.com to book onto Richmond Park Intervals. You will be asked to provide contact details and agree to our covid-secure session terms.
Anyone who has not booked on to a session will be turned away.
If you like the session and would like to come to further sessions then please join the club here.
