Welcome to Beckenham Running Club (formerly known as Forbanks AC), based at Beckenham Cricket Club, Foxgrove Road, Beckenham.
Membership has grown in the last couple of years and we are currently around 90 members of all abilities from those who enjoy running a 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.
Other sessions are organised informally at other times of the week. 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. 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 September. Membership costs £90.00 per year. This covers both social membership of the Club and running membership, so you can come into the club at any time for a meal or drinks. To join the club you don’t need to tell us in advance, you can just turn up on a Wednesday evening. For full details of the Running Section please visit our Website here
