Tooting Run Club is London Athletics Community Project of the Year

Community Project of the Year 2022

Congratulations to Herne Hill Harriers on winning the Community Project of the Year at this week’s England Athletics London Regional Volunteer Awards In Bermondsey.

The award is for the launch of Tooting Run Club in March to increase activity levels in the community. Working with leaders Tahir Shams and Keith Newton, HHH have provided coaches to support the run club, and have a regular weekly attendance of around 160 people.

Far more than just physical exercise and structured training, this new club provides support on a number of levels. Physical fitness, mental well-being, safe and inclusive scenarios in which to go running, networking, socials and new friendships are just some examples.

Well done all ???‍♀️?‍♂️
