Club Runs

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!
