The club aims to run on an informal, friendly basis and seeks to cater for a broad range of running abilities and ages. Qualified coaches who actively participate in training sessions and events are available to give advice on training needs.
We meet three times a week - more info on our club sessions can be found here:
We are a social and inclusive club and have many events throughout the year that include our club Christmas party, Club Awards night, with other activities such as “Pub of the Month”. Other ad-hoc social activities include our mince pies evening on a Wednesday just before Christmas and BBQ's. Trips to far-off events in the UK and abroad have always possessed a strong social element as well as running. Club news, articles and future events are regularly posted on this website and emailed on a regular basis.

One of the initiatives of England Athletics that Bracknell Forest Runners support is the #RunAndTalk. It is aprogram that was greated withthe aim of improving mental helath thriugh running and is supported by Mind, the mental helath charity.
We know that many of us suffer , have suffered or will suffer from a mental health issue and we want BFR to be a safe haven for everyone. Running helps our mental health. Talking helps our mental health and combining the two can only be positive.
Just as there are different ways to run (fast, slow, tempo, sprint, intervals etc), there are different ways to talk:
At BFR, we are all runners. We have at least one thing in common with all other members - running - we can talk about running. Let's use this common ground to initiate conversations and improve the mental helath of our club.
When can we do this?
We also have two Mental Health Champions within the Club, Wendy Sharp, one of our coaches and Gary Farrell, our current Chair.
Feel free to reach out anytime.
