Sweatshop Running Club - First attempt done!

Was a bit apprehensive but determined to give it a go. I knew I'd be last and made them aware before we started that I'd be slow but they said it wasn't a problem, someone would run at the back with me. They were very welcoming and I had a really nice girl running and chatting with me all the way round. The route was a bit longer then their normal one, almost 6k, and there was a few stops waiting for lights to change, dodging tourists etc. (the run was in London, over Tower Bridge and round the City).

Will definitely go again and hopefully improve.

Niiice! Where in London does it start? I'm not too far from there and wouldn't mind having a go at a Sweatshop run. There's none local to where I am and I can't think of a better city to run around than London!

It starts at their shop in a gym near Cannon Street station but there's a new one just opened in Trump Street. I also thought of trying one near Tottenham Court Road tube station - I think they run up to Regents Park. Once you register you can run with any of them.

Well done! It takes a lot to go out with a club, I really admire that!

Well done rosn, I'm impressed! I am near to the Tottenham Court Rd store and have asked about their runs which are on Tuesdays and Thursdays I think and yes they do go towards Regents Park but in the darker evenings I think they vary it. It is a good way to do an evening run with other people though so may get round to it one day.....
