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.

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

I don't know what hurt more, the intervals, or the stretching. Well done Team!

FRC WEEKLY ROUNDUP

Well Bandits I think it can safely be said that the weekend just gone will forever be known as the HMPB weekend! A combination of brilliant running, steely determination, decent weather, and fantastic cheering (if I do say so myself) led to a flurry of fantastic racing and personal bests across London and its surrounds. All the hard work and miles run in the miserable cold, wet winter are paying off big time! Well done to everyone who ran and keep an eye out for Laure's fantastic race report later this week! **Side Note: If you want to make sure that you are included in the weekly race report please always try to sign up for races under Fulham Running Club and make sure that your parkrun club is set to Fulham Running Club too! You can also send through your own race reports and photos to Laure as well.

Anyway - “How can I get more involved with the Club!” I hear you cry. Well, firstly, let’s welcome our newest members:
Jessica Leonard Hull, David Segura Pravia, Frances Lai, Sarah Parker, Helen Barrett, Anna Josephine, Sean Long, Ana MV, Charlotte Lochowitz, Duncan King, Dustin Schäfer, Myles Edwards, Kiri Zullo

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.

Fellow FRCers - appreciate some of you have shown interest in the Kenyan made Fulham RC ‘go faster’ bracelets following some recent outings... the charity & story behind them is well articulated per the link with proceeds going to giving kids in Kenya (who would not otherwise have an opportunity into primary/ secondary school) I was amazed that 10 bracelets sold = a years school fees! Hence I thought I should put it out there to see if anyone’s interested? I’d happily place an order on your behalf (perhaps in time for National XC... or your next race) as this could be the final piece to facilitate that PB!!
