Fulham Running Club
FRC started in 2004 is a friendly, open, informal fun group of runners providing motivation and support and we have a big thing for socialising!
How do I join?
Simple, just join us on Facebook. It’s free, just join in!
Is it for me?
Big yes! We have runners in the club ranging from decent beginners, right through to seasoned ultra-marathoners. If you are not a runner or is an absolute beginner and have any questions, few free to ask and we will help.
A good idea is to start with short slow runs and build up from there... don't overdo it to start with. Have a go at Fulham Palace Parkrun first, it’s free! Come and talk to any of us, you’ll recognise the black & white stripes! You can check your times and progress over the 5 km / 3.1 miles. Have a look at the Parkrun website; register there so that you can get a barcode (all is explained on the site!). Again any questions, few free to ask and someone will be able to answer.
For our club runs we meet at Nuffield Gym on Stevenage Road, Fulham, SW6 6PF (near Craven Cottage). Nuffield Gym very kindly offer us the use of the secure bike parks inside, changing rooms and lockers – simply bring your own lock.
We meet several times a week, so feel free to come down and join us!
TUESDAY @ 18:45: Interval session to help you improve your speed and endurance.
THURSDAY @ 18:45: Club Run night of “two bridges” (Putney / Hammersmith Bridge loop) is our shortest option 4 mile / 6.5 km. There is also the “three bridges” which is about 6 miles / 10 km, or “beyond”.
FRIDAY @ 06:45: Say hello to the weekend with our summer session morning run.
SATURDAY @ 09:00: Fulham Palace Parkrun, we participate both as runners and volunteers. And quite a few club members go for coffee at Fulham palace afterwards.
We encourage everyone to suggest pace groups for our THURSDAY club run so everyone is included. As a rough guide:
Regular ~ 9 min/mile (5:45 min/km)
In-betweeners ~ 8 min/mile (5:00 min/km)
Fast ~ 7 min/mile (4:20 min/km) or less
