ABOUT US:

The Fittleworth Flyers Running Club is a long-established, friendly running club with an expanding membership from Fittleworth, Petworth, Storrington and beyond.

All abilities are welcome: our membership includes those simply wishing to keep fit and socialise, improve their personal performances, or enter competitive races.

Main membership is limited to those over 18 years of age, but partners and children of members are welcome to join either to take part in social events or to compete
in West Sussex Fun Run League (WSFRL) races. Group running is only available to the over 18s, but junior family members can compete in WSFRL races provided
they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.

We meet regularly for social events, group running, and races, and enjoy a reputation of being one of the most sociable Sussex running clubs (always the last to
leave a race!). The Club is affiliated to UK Athletics, A.A.A., South of England A.A., Sussex County A.A., and is a successful member of the WSFRL.

Members enjoy discounts to race entries, retail outlets and leisure facilities.

 

If you are interested in joining us, please fill in a Membership application form, contact the Membership Secretary, or

why not come along, free of charge, to up to five of our running sessions on Tuesday evenings or Saturday mornings:

 

 

Running Calendar

  Saturday running on Sutton Hill


We run together as a club on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.

Tuesday evenings are focussed on speed work, with interval and threshold runs. All abilities are welcome; even if you consider yourself a slow runner,
you'll find Tuesdays are rewarding and a great way to improve your fitness.

Saturday mornings provide an enjoyable, longer run at an easy pace, with distances between 3 and 10 miles available. You can choose which distance you
want to run, and groups of similar ability run together.

If you're thinking about joining Fittleworth Flyers, you're very welcome to just turn up at any of these running sessions to meet us and have a run.

More information about our running sessions.
