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.

Where?

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.

When?

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

Sadly I'm no longer "with" the club (I was for 3 years), as I can't make the training sessions since I moved out of Fulham. However, on Saturday I took part in the Ultra Tour of Edinburgh and at some point I saw two ladies - who by the way quickly overtook me - sporting the club stripes in all their glory. Who were you misterious ladies? ... See MoreSee Less

Sunday 10@10 is back this week! For anyone who doesn't know: We will be running 10 miles (@10am) starting at Craven Cottage - towards hammersmith bridge and then crossing chiswick bridge and running up to putney bridge and back to craven cottage. (It's the Boat Race 10 route - so good to get practice in before the next race) Anyone/everyone welcome to join, it's a lot of fun especially if we get a big group involved🤗🙄 ... See MoreSee Less

Hey Bandits! Your club needs you! If we register 100 athletes by 30 October with England Athletics we will be given a second place in the London Marathon (we award these places by ballot to England Athletics registered members)… but we need 8 more! There are lots of benefits of registering including discounts off races (and entry to Surrey League XC is free!) and discounts off running kit and other stuff with their partner organisations. And it only costs £20pa (plus a small transaction fee).
If you might be interested please post here and I will be in touch!
