"It’s a community. Everyone pushes everyone, even people who don’t know others are getting together. When you see all the cars parked at 4.50am and the energy afterwards as everyone encourages others to finish as strong as possible. We all have a team photo at the end and everyone’s just smiling, it’s great, honestly!"
"I just love the togetherness the most, it’s just so good for my mental health, I cannot thank everyone enough.”
"“Everyone mucks in, pushing others, striving to be better. I love that.” A fourth put: "It's just brilliant. You get up, get it done, get fitter, make new friends and you're back home and ready for your day.""

Grant Dempsey


Hi, I’m Grant Dempsey founder of SRC I’m 26 and I’m from Kingstanding. I found a passion for running at the start of the year and I’ve been lucky enough to help many people along the way.
Since starting up the running club i have completed three half marathon’s and one 20 mile run in preparation of the London Marathon I have booked for October 2022, with more activities booked for later this year SRC encourages me to stay productive and keep the group going and waiting to get involved.
