We currently have over 150 members. There is a wide range of ages, abilities and aspirations in our membership so there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ Farnham Runner.
If you think you’d like to have a go then we welcome newcomers at any of our training sessions where you should make yourself known to a committee member.
What do I get?
Members are entitled to:
- Use of the facilities at our Club House
- Attend any of our training sessions
- Participate in the Club Championship and Club Handicap races
- Accumulate Grand Prix points during the season – and points mean prizes!!
- A reduced entry fee when entering road races
- Attend any of our social events
- A discount at selected local sports stores, companies and organisations:
Alton Sports: 10% discount
Queens Physiotherapy (Farnborough): 10% off initial assessment
Fiona Carle Pilates: discounts on single drop in session and 10 class pass
Whereyouwent.com 3D printed route maps: 10% discount
Proviz enhanced visibility and reflective gear: 20% discount
- UK Athletics public liability and third party insurance whilst training and competing with Farnham Runners.
Members receive a copy of Footprints, the club’s monthly newsletter which provides details of up and coming events, some training tips, recipes, race reports and the occasional (odd) bit of humour!
Will I need club kit?
If you intend to participate in any of the cross country or road leagues in which the club participates you will need a club vest or T-shirt. Members often run in their club kit at other races, both locally, throughout the UK and some times in other countries!
Club kit can be purchased from Alton Sports.
We also have a range of other club kit for social running and travelling to and from club events. This can be purchased directly from Farnham Runners.
