    New to Running?
    The beginners group started in July 2015 and has since grown rapidly.  Those that have turned up at 1:10 on a Thursday are of all levels and  with Ravens there to help them we are confident that the ‘newbies’ will  grow in confidence and ability.  We do run every day from the same point north east on Tower Bridge, so  feel free to join us. We are a friendly group whose passion is running  and helping others combine work, family and running.. you are all  welcome to join us... read more.  Contact philhernon@catalinare.com for details.


    The Ravens City of London Running Club was started by four individuals from the London Insurance market: Phil Hernon, Andy Hayward, Ricky Goad and Bernie Tuck.
    Whilst consisting primarily of  London Insurance Market employees, anybody is welcome to participate in  the daily structured training sessions. The group meets at 1.10 pm at  the North East end of Tower Bridge,  hence the adopted name of ‘Ravens’.

    The structured training includes two speed sessions on a Tuesday  and Thursday whilst the remainder of the week’s sessions consist of a  steady group run, usually about 5 miles – sometimes longer, along the  remarkably traffic-free courses.

    The group has grown, since it originally formed in 1997, many of  whom participate each lunchtime. The group consists of varying ages and  abilities. We also have a beginners group of all levels which meets at 1:10 on a Thursday  and with Ravens there to help them we are confident that the ‘newbies’  will grow in confidence and ability.

    The success of the group is quite remarkable. Runners have trained  and progressed with a group that is able to boast a county Champion,  numerous race winners, as well as runners who have represented their  country at international level. There  are many other successes within the group too.

    There are regular ‘curry nights’ and we have our ‘Runner of the Year’ award, presented at the Christmas Ravens gathering.

    We are a friendly and passionate group – feel free to come and join us.
