Club Runs

COVID-19 NOTICE: WHILE ALL OUR CLUB RUNS HAVE NOW RESUMED, WE ARE STILL FOLLOWING
THE SAFETY AND REGULATION GUIDELINES SET BY THE UK GOVERNMENT AND EA ATHLETICS.


ONLY EA REGISTERED (WITH FRC) MEMBERS CAN CURRENTLY ATTEND. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A FULL MEMBER, JOIN HERE https://www.fulhamrunningclub.org.uk/join/

FOR UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION ON CLUB RUNS, PLEASE VISIT OUR FACEBOOK GROUP.

Fulham Running Club meets three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.

When parkrun resumes, you will also find us at Bishop’s Park on Saturday mornings. Club runs depart from various locations depending where the session is being held (see below events). When meeting at Nuffield, you will have access to their secure bike-locker, changing rooms and lockers – simply bring your own padlock. Please arrive 5 minutes early if you wish to take advantage of this.

ARE THESE SESSIONS FOR YOU?

All our sessions are inclusive for runners of all abilities. However, to join a club run on Thursday or Sunday, you should be confident that you can manage the entire distance at a pace of at least 10.30min/mile or 6.30min/km (equivalent to a 5k in around 32 minutes). Not quite there yet? Come along to our Tuesday interval session; you’ll build up your fitness and confidence in no time! Alternatively, we highly recommend the “Couch to 5k” app, it worked for many of us!

Saturday Fulham Palace Parkrun

Start time: 9am, but do try to arrive 10/15 minutes before for briefing/warm-up, especially if you are new!
Meet-up point: at the centre of Bishop’s Park, next to the children’s playground and the skatepark (SW6 6EA).

Fulham Palace parkrun, like any parkrun, is a timed 5km, completely free and run by awesome volunteers weeks in, weeks out.
It’s a great opportunity to meet FRC members (look out for the black and white stripes) who often go for post-run coffee and cake afterwards at the cafe nearby. A Sweet way to welcome new members!

You do not need to register your attendance, you just simply turn up and run!
However, you do need to have registered with parkun and gotten your personal barcode beforehand, which you’ll need to show to get your time recorded.
