Tooting Run Club is a free community running club based at Tooting Bec Athletics Track in the Borough of Wandsworth, South-West London.
We’re a volunteer-led group and are open to everyone aged 18 and over. Equality, diversity & inclusion is at the heart of everything we do, and we welcome all regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, ability etc.
We are supported by local athletics club, Herne Hill Harriers, who provide a team of coaches and deliver extensive support.
After picking up for the Community Project of the Year Award for the London Region in November 2022, Tooting Run Club were awarded the National title in that same category! Thanks to everyone on the England Athletics Awards Panel that voted for us! The National Award was presented in Birmingham on 24 February 2023.
"I first heard about Tooting Run Club on Instagram in February 2022. I’d always been of the opinion that ‘athletics clubs’ felt too serious, so coming across the plans that @runwithtahir and co had for TRC, it felt like I’d hit the jackpot. I joined the first session and I’ve attended ever since 😊 Every week we welcome new people, cheer each other on and watch people progress.
Within 6 months of joining, I’ve managed to get my 5km time under 30 mins for the first time since 2019, completed my first ever marathon, built my confidence, met like-minded people, and had the opportunity to challenge myself weekly. I never thought I’d say this - but I now look forward to Mondays! Tooting Run Club has offered an incredibly supportive and inclusive environment and I can’t thank Tahir and the coaching team enough!"
"I’ve been part of TRC since the first ever session on Tooting Common back in March, and have attended over 30 Monday night sessions! I just can’t get enough and I look forward to training each week; it’s the perfect way to cure the Monday blues! The variation of the sessions is brilliant - each one testing in their own unique way. Before TRC, I used to run the same route locally, at the same pace each time, so to have the different sessions all planned out for you is so helpful. It’s refreshing to see the team proactively ask for feedback and constantly make improvements 🙌🏼.
Before TRC, I was a “casual jogger” but I think now I can call myself an actual “runner”! Thank you to this wonderful club for everything they do, week in week out, it never ceases to amaze me, you all fully deserved the award you recently won 👏🏼 this club is unstoppable."
