Who we are

SHAEF Shifters is a running club based in and around Teddington, South West London.

The club was born from a few different groups of friends in early 2017. We've since grown to around 50 members.

Bushy Park is our office.

You'll be more than welcome to come along to one of our weekly group runs. Many of us also meet up at Bushy parkrun on Saturday mornings, followed by a friendly cool down jog and chat, and sometimes coffee and cake!

A big part of being in SHAEF is participating in the great local races and running events around Teddington, Surrey and London. We celebrate taking part and personal improvement. The Green Belt Relay is a perfect example of this, and you can get a sense of what it’s like being part of SHAEF in our 2022 race recap and video here.

You can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram or get in touch via our contact page.

Where we run

We get together several times each week, routes vary but we tend to meet up at the Teddington gates of Bushy Park.

Wednesdays (summer months only) from 7:00pm

Arethusa Mile - meet by Chestnut Avenue near the Diana Fountain, Bushy Park

Thursdays @ 6:50pm

Group run - pace & distance varies, meet just inside Teddington gates in Bushy Park

Saturday mornings @ 9:00am

Group run - our members run at lots of different parkrun events, but Bushy parkrun always has the biggest turnout, some running, some volunteering. Always followed by a cool down jog of around 5k, often followed by coffee & cake at The Pheasantry!

Sundays @ 8:00am

Long group run - a longer run to end the week. Route & distance vary, usually organised in advance by club members.
