Run Dem Crew
London, UK

A love of running and creativity and a desire to share that with as many people as possible coupled with a desire to help those less fortunate.

Formed in the winter of 2007 by DJ, poet and writer Charlie Dark, as an alternative to traditional stuffy running clubs, Run Dem Crew is committed to change and the upliftment of the next generation.

RDC works closely with young people across London providing mentoring and advice along with the opportunity to explore London in a safe, unique, positive and supportive environment.

As well as exploring the streets of London the Run Dem Crew also celebrates the diverse urban environment that surrounds the 1948 space with post run workshops, films and talks.
