About Us

Fern LogoWe are a friendly, social, running club consisting of members of varying ability and ages.
As we are based at Brandon Leisure Centre, we have the luxury of the Thetford Forest right on the doorstep, so most of our club runs are off-road and on peaceful forest trails.

If you are a beginner, or an experienced runner looking to improve, why not come along and give us a try, our members have a wealth of experience, from fun runs to marathons, which they are happy to share!

As a well established running club we offer the benefits to our members of being affiliated to both British Athletics and The Association of Running Clubs.

We are proud of our close connection to Brandon Country Park parkrun, with the club having been instrumental in it’s establishment, as well as offering ongoing financial support as it has grown.

But don’t get the wrong impression… we’re not too serious, we often have a social evening at the local curry establishment for example, our main objective is to enjoy ourselves and to pass on our enthusiasm for running to others.

We don’t have many club rules, but our philosophy is simple – run and have fun.

For many across the region and beyond though we are best known for our well loved race, The Wibbly Wobbly Log Jog! Each year we invite runners from all over to share the forest trails we are lucky to be able to run along all year long.
