Welcome to Fulham Running Club

Open to all abilities, we're a super friendly bunch of runners in the Fulham area who meet twice a week to run and enjoy a few drinks at the local watering holes from time to time. Best of all... it's FREE TO JOIN
Get Involved

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.

How Fast?

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



FRC INTERVALS TONIGHT! In a revolutionary approach to social media, FRC's Twitter team* can actually share tonight's session in advance (drum roll):

4 x 4:30 hard effort with 3:00 recover jog between each one!

6:45pm, SW6 6PF

*it's just me, but Twitter team sounds way cooler

Even snow can't stop FRC at parkrun... 💪👊🏻🏃🏻‍♂️🏃‍♀️
Amazing shout out to davidc25845 on his… https://t.co/6DxDWb4D54

Another great night with @SambrookAle last night. For anyone not in the loop - Run For Beer is a monthly event, one lap round Battersea Park = 1 free beer. Highly recommend the new Nitro Stout. Support your local brewery #beer

It's Thursday afternoon! It's almost the weekend! It's sunny! And, as if you needed any more reasons to be cheerful, the FRC weekly race report is ready!


"Happiness is a post interval stretch", said no one ever.

Monday has come around again so soon! A mixture of results from the snowy weekend - for some came frustration as several highly anticipated events were cancelled due to bad weather, for others another chance to experience running in the snow and a sense of achievement from getting out there and getting it done. If you were one of the latter and would like to share any experiences don’t forget to send them through to Laure for her run report!
PS. If anyone else is interested in giving back to the running community by volunteering at the London Landmarks half marathon this Sunday 25/03 (7:30am-1pm) with us please let me know - it should be great fun and the good news is that there's no snow forecast for the weekend, woohoo!

Ok, on to business. Firstly, let’s welcome our newest members:
Brittney Haines, Stephanie Libous, Carla Pilcher, Lauren Nel, Pippa Jeffcock, Ann Lam, Emily Young, Becky Sargent, Antje Wenzli, Cency Go, Warren Church, Ben Snowball, Steve Kotze, Rachel Levene.

Welcome to FRC! As our newest bandits, please comment below and tell us a little bit about yourself, your running journey, recent achievements or goals and how you came to join FRC. Take a look at our club description to find out about our regular runs and training sessions, and feel free to join us at any of these sessions. Also, you can find out about upcoming socials and races under the Events tab. Any questions, please ask / comment below. Feel free to add Fulham Running Club as your club on your parkrun profile and if you use Strava – join us on Fulham Running Club.

“If you are persistent, you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it.”... Join us this week for Tuesday intervals and Thursday club run.

Join us for our weekly intervals session that is suitable for everyone. We alternate hard and fast efforts with slow recoveries in an aim to get stronger, faster and improve our endurance.
The session will be: 4 x 4:30 hard effort with 3:00 recovery jog.
Reminder to come ready with bright clothes and a head torch if you have one (but it’s not long now until the clocks go forward!) Don’t forget the post intervals stretching with Rick outside Craven Cottage.
Upcoming "Run for the hills" dates in 2018: 27/03, 3/4, 10/4 (TBC)
As we are now, more often than not, splitting the group into two for our intervals, it would be great to have a couple more people who would be keen to lead either the fast or regular sub-pack. Let me know if you are interested!

THURSDAY CLUB RUN 22/03 @ 18:45 SW6 6PF
Join us on our Thursday club run led by Bob Empson - you can choose the 7km Two Bridges (with back marker Judith Clarkson 🙂 ) or 11km Three Bridges route. Please bring a head torch if you have one.

Check out the Surrey Road League (www.surreyathletics.org.uk/road/league/). This is a series of 7 races through the summer of varying distances in which we compete as a team and also as individuals. You can enter as many of the races as you like, and our top 3 men and women finishers for each race will score for the team. It’s a really great opportunity to take part in some fantastic and inexpensive races whilst also racing for the club. For further info check out the first few races in the events tab. These races sell out quickly so get involved!!!

There is always something happening; take a look at our events or our calendar on: www.fulhamrunningclub.org.uk/racing/
