Why Join Serpentine?

You can join us online hereThere are many reasons to join, here are just a few...

For experienced, competitive athletes

  • Serpies at Speakers Corner

    A Tuesday night coached track session at Parliament Hill track led by coach David Chalfen, open to runners able to run 10k in less than 37 minutes.
  • Other club members meet up elsewhere for non-club coached track sessions. Many of our fastest endurance runners also run together at around threshold to marathon pace on most Thursday evenings, and are also able to meet up for longer runs on Sunday mornings.
  • Experienced, proven individual coaching if you think that may help you progress further.
  • Particularly for runners from outside the UK, we are able to advise on race selection, such as which races offer the strongest competition, and on how the UK endurance running set-up might differ from other countries.
  • Free entry to various club-only league races, including the Met league (possibly the most competitive cross-country league in the UK); the Southern Athletics League and other track & field leagues; and the Assembly League (a swift, monthly 5k series). County, regional and national level championships, the spring and autumn regional and national-level road relays, which attract many of the top runners in the country.

For triathletes

  • A full program of coached triathlon training sessions to get involved with.
  • Be part of a running and triathlon community. Wearing Serpentine club kit (you get a free running vest or T-shirt when you join) you'll hear "Go Serpie" far and wide.
  • Explore the countryside around London with our cycle rides (usually involving cake).
  • Swim and spin sessions open to triathletes and cross-training runners.
  • Discounted British Triathlon individual membership (which is required to avoid paying for a day license).
  • Discounts on races, especially if you opt to join England Athletics.

For juniors

  • A Juniors section open to ages 8+ open to all standards for athletics training and competition
