Brentwood Running Club is a diverse community of runners of different ages, abilities, and interests. Through weekly training, group runs, and charitable events, we encourage and support our members to reach their running goals, foster our community spirit, and seek that runner’s high!
Inspired by their wives’ sporting efforts at the Sunday Times National Fun Run in Hyde Park, Brentwood Running Club was started in 1987 by Brian Carter, John Hayman, and Alf Overy.
Originally known as the Thrift Green Trotters, the club’s aim was to encourage local runners to meet in Brentwood and improve their fitness whilst having fun and meeting like-minded runners.
In 2018, it was voted that the Thrift Green Trotters be renamed to Brentwood Running Club. Although the name changed, the spirit of the club did not… To enjoy the community and camaraderie of running, no matter your ability.
Brentwood Running Club is proud to support Saint Francis Hospice in our charitable events.
Many BRC members and their families have had first-hand experience of the excellent work done by the Hospice, and we couldn’t think of a better partner to support.
Our main fundraiser each year is the London Marathon, where multiple club members run the 26.2 miles for our chosen charity. BRC is allocated one guaranteed entry and two volunteer places.
