Welcome to Beckenham Running Club (formerly known as Forbanks AC), based at Beckenham Cricket Club, Foxgrove Road, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 5AS (Google Map). Membership has grown in the last couple of years and we are currently just over 100 members of all abilities from those who enjoy running just a few miles to stay fit through to those that compete at a high level.
Club night is every Wednesday evening of the year, all weathers (We meet at 6.45 for 7.00 start)
Typically we split into fast, medium and slow groups and run for about an hour followed by a get together in the bar. The Club facilities include baggage store and lockers, changing facilities, toilets and showers as well as a bar that serves food and drink.
We run regular training sessions throughout the year which are organised informally at other times of the week.
We compete in road races throughout the year, ranging from road relays to 10k, 10 mile, half marathon and marathon events. Once a month we hold a handicap race and award trophies each year based on aggregate score during the year. We also organise three annual races: a 3 X 2.6 mile relay in May, a 10km road race in June, and a 10km trail race in November.
We have two levels of membership:
Associate Membership (£30 or £40 including EA affiliation per year)
This level of membership gives full use of the extensive facilities at Beckenham Cricket Club on club nights (Wednesdays) only, including access to changing rooms, showers, and licenced bar offering hot meals. Please note that there are no additional on-the-night subscription charges to pay and you are welcome to train with us at other times when we meet at other locations like the track, you can also represent Beckenham at races (subject to 1st/2nd claim status) and join in at club events and trips.
Full Running Club Membership (£95 per year)
This covers both social membership of Beckenham Cricket Club and Running Club membership, you can take advantage of the Crickets Club’s facilities for meals or drinks 7 days a week and not just on club nights.
