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.

Thursday Night Is Track Night

We are starting to see numbers dwindle on the track on a Thursday. This is a shame as we have a great resource that most clubs do not. We also pay an annual fee for its use. If fewer and fewer people use it then at some point, we may not be able to justify …

Mens XC Match 1 – Wimbledon Results

Contrary to expectations, this was not the flat(ish) Wimbledon course of last year, but a woody, hilly circuit that sent a slightly depleted Barnes Mens Team on their way into the 2017/18 with a bang. Cruelly stripped of a number of XC stalwarts by (mainly) a mixture of injuries and illness,  a gallant band of …
