THE CITY RUNNERS STORY: THE ROAD AHEAD
In 2010, a handful of runners set out for a run, leaving their bags behind in Tim’s apartment.
The club grew from that very first session and has continued to go from strength to strength every year since.
Today, London City Runners is a huge, multi-award winning club. We have one aim: to help as many people as possible to enjoy the thrill and rewards of running in London. Over the years, we’ve helped 10,000+ runners achieve their individual goals.
The club has become a strong force for good in the local area and is a social hub in the heart of the incredible city of London. Our social focus is as thriving as ever and we’ve had at least 9 marriages, 11 babies and countless friendships develop between people who’ve met through the club.
Hi, I’m Tim. My Dad was a marathon runner way back in the 70s (a long time before it was fashionable!) and running has been a big part of my life since I was a child. At school I ran in the nationals for cross country and athletics. At University I was a keen triathlete then after graduation I got a taste for marathons and have had the bug ever since! In May 2010 I set up London City Runners and it’s been a been a great pleasure getting hundreds and thousands of people to enjoy the natural buzz that running brings through running with the club.
Hi, I’m Kerry. I wasn’t into sports when I was younger, but I took up running a few years ago through attending my local ParkRun. I joined London City Runners when I wanted to train further, and I did my first half and first full marathon with the club in 2016. I love the social focus of this club, and helping to get more and more people just like me to discover running and all the benefits it brings. When I’m not busy running the club with Tim, I work in cancer research.
