Running and endurance is at the core of pretty much all team sports. We are very lucky to have so many options in South West London for children to get involved.
Our first stop suggestion is visiting your local junior parkrun. This is a shorter distance (2K) than the normal adult 5K's on a Saturday morning and are held on the first Sunday of the month. These events are specifically created for ages of 4 - 14 years old and are a lot of fun!
As you can see from the map below there are many in the surrounding area. For more information & to find your nearest one, please click
