A South London club with a great juniors section, very strong on track training (for all ages!), but with experience in everything up to Ultra Distance. They have great coaches, a lovely mix of ages from an enthusiastic team of youngsters to vets who've been running many a decade. A well organized and diverse club who regularly feature in the medals.
We pride ourselves on being a family club and cater for all standards. We offer coaching, training and competitions in all track and field events, road running, cross-country, indoor athletics and sports hall and welcome athletes of all ages from 11 upwards interested in track and field, road running or cross country races.
The Star-Track Summer Training Week at the end of July offers an excellent opportunity for youngsters to get involved.
A number of club members compete at the highest level - long jumper Jade Johnson has represented Great Britain in a number of major championships, including the Olympic Games. The club has a plethora of highly talented youngsters, some of whom regularly break club age-group records, and a number of these young starlets have won medals in various national competitons. The club is also blessed with a number of very talented veteran athletes, some of whom have won medals and national and internaional level.
Road runners are equally at home. Club teams annually enter the Surrey, South of England and National 6-Stage Road Relays in the autumn as well as the longer 12-Stage races in the spring. Red and black hoops are regularly seen in the London as well as at numerous local road races.
Although we have well established teams contesting the major local leagues and championships, we very much welcome new members and would encourage you to come along to our main club night at Tooting Bec track, London SW17.
