Training runs

Runners running up a steep track in Bourne Woods

Covid-19 update: Following updated guidance from England Athletics, Wednesday club runs are starting from a number of local venues at 7pm and include a range of distances and paces. For further details please contact farnhamrunners@hotmail.com.

We meet at our Club House on Wednesdays and Sundays for a variety of training runs in the surrounding countryside (summer) or around the town (winter).

Wednesday evening training runs

7pm from the Club House

Six to seven groups generally form up – those who want to go further or faster and those who’d like to keep it steady.

During the winter the runs are mostly around Farnham town where we can find street lighting. Longer runs are out to Aldershot or Badshot Lea for those who want to.

During the summer months the runs can be on a variety of terrain over the many commons within easy reach of the clubhouse. Again, the distances and speeds can vary according to needs and ability.

Distances range from 5 to 11 miles at 10 minute mile pace and faster up to 6 to 7 minute mile pace.

If you have not reached these standards yet please email farnhamrunners@hotmail.com for advice about how Farnham Runners can help you.

Sunday morning training runs

9:30am from the Club House

When a big race is not on, Sundays are for those long, slow training runs.

We run out from the Club house into the surrounding countryside, making as much use as possible of the wide variety of terrain on the commons of Frensham, Tilford, Hankley or Crooksbury (amongst others).


If you think you’d like to have a go then we welcome newcomers at any of our training runs where you should make yourself known to a committee member.
