Barnes Runners flag

Welcome to the official website of Barnes Runners, an averagely interesting running club head-quartered in south-west London (Richmond Park, Conservative hold). Fast or slow, old or very old, we encourage runners of various levels of ability to run with us.

Based at Rose House in the centre of  Barnes, our runs take members along the towpaths of Barnes, Putney, Hammersmith, Mortlake and Richmond, as well as across Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park.

Members may log on via the administration widget on the right. If you would like to receive updates from the club about future events, training runs and races, you may do so by subscribing to posts (via the box on the right).

Ricmond Park, December 2010

We aspire to helping you to achieve whatever you want to get out of running – that might be marginally more (or in some cases, less) than you think. Some members compete on a regular basis, some join us for training sessions – some simply join us for breakfast afterwards.

Browse our website to find out more – or contact us directly at Enquiries@BarnesRunners.org.

… for Unsung Heroines

By the time the last runners had schlepped and shuffled their way across the finish line at last month’s Putney half marathon, a consensus had been reached on one key issue: Self-Styled Grumpy Old Woman Denise Bates had just run the worst race of her entire running career. But as the abandoned bananas were being …

Mens Cross Country Match 2 – Epsom Racecourse 11th November 1500

After a courageous, but unfortunately and unavoidably,   a slightly weakened Barnes performance for the first match of the season,  it is time to put in a better effort  and begin our progress up the league (as we try to improve on our fourth spot last year). Match 2 takes us to Sunny Epsom on Saturday …
