Running

Ellie Brown and her team of qualified England Athletics coaches have been taking sessions in and around Greenwich for over 14 years. We run fully licensed Run Together/England Athletics running groups and train in the beautiful surroundings of Greenwich Park.

The groups are supported by Run Together and the Royal Greenwich Park and we are actively involved in promoting running in the community. Each running group offers not only training support and guidance but encouragement, camaraderie, warmth and a good welcome.Why not join us for one of our free community runs.
