Welcome to Beckenham Running Club, catering for adults of all ages and speeds ranging between 15 and 30 minutes for a 5Km race/Parkrun. We meet on Wednesday evenings at 6.45 for a 7 pm start at Beckenham Sports Club, Foxgrove Road, Beckenham, BR3 5AS (Google Map).
On a typical club night, a menu of social runs of various distances and speed are offered by group leaders; after hot showers many of us stay for food & drinks in the club bar.
Training / Social runs / Parkrun
We hold training sessions on Monday nights providing a social way to improve both fitness and speed. At weekends we meet up for Parkrun’s and other organised runs ranging from social romps through woods and fields to competition races and events (see below).
We compete in races throughout the year, ranging from 5K up to marathon distance as well as team relay events.
Within the club, there are various competitions. Once a month we all run the Handicap race on a circuit of Beckenham Place Park. It is challenging but great fun with a trophy awarded to the person with the most points at the end of the year. Similarly, we have a Grand Prix competition with one race per month at an official event in and around London, again with prizes for those with the highest scores at the end of the year.
We host an annual relay and a charity trail race, please see the Our Races section for further details.
We hold social events throughout the year, a mix of dinners, dances and trips both abroad and within the UK. Many of our members also meet up for cycling, tennis and other activites.
