Our second Sunday races provide a perfect way to start your lazy Sunday. We’ve a beautiful route over Wimbledon Common, you’ll have a lovely run, and earn a good breakfast afterwards.

And because it’s Sunday, we’re keeping it simple ourselves. So it’s low key, no huge organisation, and no prizes. Just a well marked course, plenty of support and accurate results soon after the race. That means you can relax, enjoy your running, and we can get the breakfast going faster.

Second Sunday Five Miles – August route

The course is a beauty – good running, lovely scenery and not too much mud. And no splash.

The race starts at our clubhouse on Richardson Evans Memorial fields. It runs out alongside Beverley Brook before two undulating laps and then a return to finish by our clubhouse.

    This is such a lovely event, put on by Thames Hare & Hounds every 2nd Sunday. It's low-key, inexpensive (free if you join the club), friendly and very inclusive. The two-lap course is pretty and the upside of the climb up the Toast Rack is the lovely downhill afterwards. It's environmentally friendly -numbers are reused - and there's great tea (in mugs) and cake afterwards 😁
