A Merry Christmas and Happy 2019 from Dulwich Runners!
Our weekly training sessions are starting again from Wednesday January 2 after the festive period!
If you have entered a half marathon or marathon this spring and looking for someone to train with to give you that extra motivation or just looking to improve your Parkrun times please come along to one of our Wednesday night club runs. We have 3 routes every week from 5 miles to 11 miles. There is always people to run with at different paces to suit a wide range of abilities. Please come along to our club house at the Edward Alleyn Club on 83-85 Burbage Road (SE24 9HD) every Wednesday at 7.15 for 7.30pm. Cost £1. We have showers and bar facilities too.

We also have track training sessions at Crystal Palace Sports Centre on a Tuesday evening at 7.00pm for 7.20pm to help all runners improve their speed at all distances. Cost £2.50. For more details please see: https://www.dulwichrunners.org.uk/tuesday/
We had an enjoyable Christmas party at The Lordship in East Dulwich celebrating numerous club championship winners for various age groups from senior runners to 40+, 50+ and 60+. We reflected on our successful Midsummers Relays event in June where 87 teams took part in an enjoyable spectacle around Dulwich Park; some great individual performances where 46 members completed a marathon in 2018 from 2:33 to 5hrs plus; and the strong depth of our teams where our Men’s team is currently second in the Surrey Cross Country Division 2 and our Women’s age groups have won various British and Kent Masters medals.
And the morning after some members took part in our annual fancy dress 5k handicap run around Dulwich Park!
