Club History

Sudbury Court Running Club was formed in May 1999 as a result of a decision made by a group of runners that had previously met informally each Tuesday for a run and a social drink.  Originally the group had consisted of members of the Serpentine Running Club based in Hyde Park using the Tuesday meeting for Harrow and Wembley members to meet at Vale Farm Sports Centre to run on a regular basis.  Over the years other runners joined the group but not the Serpentine Club.

Following its creation the Sudbury Court Running Club took its name from the Sudbury Court Sports Club where the group had moved to earlier in 1999.  The club developed, achieving and maintaining a membership of around 30 members, it became and is currently affiliated to the South of England Athletics Associationgoverned by the British Athletic Federation (BAF).

In June 2004 the Sudbury Court Sports Club ceased to exist, as a result the Sudbury Court Running Club took up temporary residence with Wembley Cricket while an alternative base could be found.  In September 2004 the club moved to a new home at Wembley and Sudbury Tennis and Squash Club.  More recently we have moved to Wembley Cricket Club, between Vale Farm and Sudbury Avenue.  

 

What we do

The club meets at 7.05pm, every Tuesday evening, at Wembley Cricket Club, between Vale Farm and Sudbury Avenue (there is also a meeting point by the grass on Sudbury Avenue).  Please message the club for further directions.  We can also be found on Spond.

The Tuesday run begins with a social run of about 2k, run at a speed to accommodate everyone. It then splits up to run various distances, ranging from 4-9 miles in total. Length of run is entirely of personal choice.

Most of the courses undertaken are on well-lit roads, but in summer, many people enjoy running over Horsenden Hill, Greenford, and along the canal towpath.
Some free car parking space is available on site, and there is ample street parking.
