Wandle Runners

Running on Wandsworth Common

Loving the great outdoors

Running is about enjoying the gorgeous green spaces (in summer) and quiet streets (in winter) of south-west London.

 

We think running should be free, but we also believe in supporting the spaces we love.

 

We don't charge a fee, but just ask that you donate to  local charity, such as those below. In 2014 we raised nearly £200 for our recipient charities. Click here to see proof of our contributions.

Charities our runners have supported.

 

- London Wildlife Trust (restoring Farm Bog on Wimbledon Common, one of the last remaining lowland bogs in London)

 

- National Trust (managing Morden Hall Park: meadows, rose garden, meandering river, innovative forms of renewable energy: heaven)

 

- Wandle Trust (organising regular clean-ups of the rapidly-improving River Wandle, a biodiversity corridor from Croydon to Wandsworth)

 

 

We are supporting a campaign for the Wandle Trail to be extended through Earlsfield, giving us more running space along the River Wandle. We have recently signed a letter to local councillor, Andrew Judge, which can be viewed here.
