Serpentine is possibly the largest running and triathlon club in Britain. We have 2245 members of whom 43% are women. We have a wide variation of ages: a few juniors, many young people, a few in their eighties and everything in-between. However, although we are large, we like to think we retain a friendly, small club atmosphere and always welcome newcomers.
Our roots were in road running but these days our members take part in all sorts of sporting activities loosely related to running. We compete in road races all year round. Additionally, in the winter we also do cross country, taking part in two leagues, as well as in County and National Championships; and in summer, we have men's and women's track & field teams in the Southern Athletics League, the vets league, and the Rosenheim league. The other major focus in summer of course is triathlon and duathlon racing, with members competing at every distance (in fact several hundred club members only ever compete in multi-sport). We have several members who have competed at international level for England and other nations in running, track & field, duathlon and triathlon competitions.
