Monday Social Run
The Monday social run is suitable for all abilities, you just need to be confident you can manage the distance to participate in this run, regardless of pace! It is a great opportunity to get to know other members, and has a more relaxed feel than some of the more training-focused sessions.
We meet at the Clubhouse at Trinity Fields (on the corner of Burntwood Lane and Beechcroft Road, see map here for a 7:15pm start. There are toilets and changing space in the Clubhouse, and everything is locked when we set off so you can leave bikes and belongings there while you're running (although please note there are sometimes other organisations using the Clubhouse and Clapham Chasers can't accept responsibility for anything left there).
This session runs every normal Monday, BUT NOT Bank Holiday Mondays, Christmas Eve, or New Year's Eve.
Please do introduce yourself at the start if you are new. We always have two session leaders, a "Novice+" leader, and two "Novice" leaders, so there is always someone on hand to answer any questions you may have! There is also a session briefing before we set off, confirming which route we are doing and who our pacers will be.
We split into 3 groups:
PLEASE OBSERVE THE THE HIGHWAY CODE AND USE COMMON SENSE AT THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS AND ANY ROAD CROSSINGS. In addition, we DO NOT have right of way - please stay to the left wherever possible and make space for cyclists/other pedestrians.
There are currently 3 routes, and we run them on rotation:
