Fulham's Couch to 5K:
Take your first steps to running (and fun!)

We're excited to announce the launch of our Couch to 5K programme, designed for absolute beginners and those looking to return to running. Whether you've never laced up a pair of trainers or haven't run in years, this programme is the perfect way to kick-start your running journey in a supportive and friendly environment.


So what is Couch to 5K?

It's a nine-week structured training plan that helps you comfortably reach the goal of running 5km (3.1 miles). You'll have three runs per week, with rest days in between and a gradually increasing running time to avoid injuries and build confidence.


Who can join?

This programme is perfect for absolute beginners and anyone who wants to get back into running. We welcome everyone in the Fulham community, regardless of your current fitness level. The only requirement is that you can comfortably walk for 25 minutes – we'll help you build up to running 5km at your own pace!

We understand starting something new can be daunting, so we want to assure you that this is a fun and supportive programme. You'll be meeting new people who share your goals and enjoying the journey together.


What's the commitment?

We'll have one in-person session per week and encourage you to do two additional runs on your own schedule. All you need is comfortable clothing and trainers – no fancy gear required!


When and where?

The programme kicks off with an introductory meet and greet on Saturday 6 April at 10:00. Our first official session is on Monday 8 April, and we aim to celebrate your "graduation" at the Fulham Palace parkrun on Saturday 8 June.

In-person sessions will be held on Mondays at 07:00 and 18:30 at All Saints Church next to Bishop's Park. With two coaches leading each session, you'll receive personalised support and guidance every step of the way.


How much does it cost?

The programme costs £30, which includes:

  • Support and advice from experienced Fulham Running Club run leaders

  • The chance to connect with a local community of runners

  • A commemorative Fulham Running Club Couch to 5K t-shirt upon completion

  • And the immense satisfaction of achieving your 5K goal!


Spaces are limited to 30 people, so don't miss out! Sign up today and take your first steps towards a healthier and happier you with the Fulham Running Club Couch to 5K programme.
