All training runs are available to all members of Bracknell Forest Runners (BFR) whether or not they are taking part in a marathon or other distance race. Members of other clubs are welcome to join us for these training runs but would have to join BFR as second claim members. Unattached runners can also apply for membership of BFR. BFR is affiliated to England Athletics and so our training runs are covered by relevant EA insurance policies subject to the terms and conditions of those policies.

Please select training runs appropriate to your ability, if in doubt please ask; don’t wreck your chances by over training, especially in the early days.

Do ensure that you wear clothing suitable to the distance of the run and conditions and if running at night please wear light coloured clothing, preferably hi-viz or florescent. Bring your own food, drinks, gels etc for consumption during and after each run. You do not have to take part in every run within a group’s schedule. Also you may swap between groups whenever it suits your particular training needs.

The club encourages all members to take part in all 8 Thames Valley Cross Country League races (TVXC) as part of their training schedule irrespective of your ability. The club pays the entry fees for these races for the club’s first and second claim members. NB wearing of club colours is a requirement at all TVXC races. Please refer to the TVXC website for race dates and other details.

More information regarding specific schedules coming soon
