Club Runs

Fulham Running Club meets at least four times a week on a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday.

Most mid-week runs depart from the front of Nuffield Health on Stevenage Road. At Nuffield, you 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 are for you?

All our sessions are inclusive for runners of all abilities. However, to join a club run on Thursday, Friday or Sunday 10@10 you should be confident that you can manage the entire distance at a pace of at least 10min/mile (equivalent to a 5k parkrun in around 30-31 minutes).

Not quite there yet? Come along to our Tuesday interval session or parkrun on a Saturday, you’ll build up your fitness and confidence in no time!

Our weekly sessions

Check our Facebook Group for the weekly announcement of times and locations.

Wearing Hi-vis/reflective gear and a light source are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for all evening club runs in the dark. Hi-vis/reflective gear is MANDATORY for intervals on Stevenage Road.

Club branded reflective tops are available from the Club Shop.

Day

Tuesday intervals

What is it?

Interval, hill or track session to help you improve your speed and endurance. This session is beginner friendly, as it includes repeated efforts over a short loop or out and back, so no-one gets left behind! NB. Track sessions cost £2 to cover the track’s hiring cost. All other sessions are free.

When & where is it?

We now run two intervals sessions on Tuesdays. One is in Fulham (starting at Nuffield Heath at 6:45pm on Stevenage Road; scroll down for location details); and the other is either on the track at Barn Elms (just the other side of the river, Queen Elizabeth Walk, SW13 9SA) or once a month in Putney for hills work (St Margaret’s Church, Putney Park Lane SW15 5HU), the latter both starting at 7pm.

Sessions last about an hour including warm-up and stretching.

Hi-vis/reflective gear is MANDATORY for intervals on Stevenage Road on dark evenings.

Check our Facebook Group for the weekly announcement of times and locations.
