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.

Meniscal …

Surrey Road Race League 2016 – The Finish Line – Wimbledon 5K

The last race of the season for the Ladies and Mens road race was the “gently undulating” Wimbledon 5K, starting and finishing in the excellent Wimbledon park athletics track and stadium on Sunday the 14th August. (Fairly unexpected (for me at least)  uphill first 2k..) A strong Barnes contingent was present for both Men and …
