Running clubs: Why you should join one & what’s available in Singapore

Are you a runner looking to take your running to the next level? Perhaps you’ve been running solo across Singapore, seeing your fitness steadily improve, but somehow, something’s missing.

Well, that “something” may be motivation, and that, just like your fitness level, is something you can boost. It might be time to consider running with others, and that’s where running clubs come in.

What is a running club?

A running club is a community of like-minded people who regularly come together to share their passion for running. These clubs typically organise group runs, training sessions, and sometimes social events that bring the community together to provide support and motivation to one another.

The power of community

While we love solo running from time to time, there are numerous reasons why we’re sold on the benefits of joining and running with a club.

Running Event

Motivation and accountability

One of the biggest benefits is the in-built support system it provides. Whenever you know you have a community of fellow runners and friends waiting for you to join them at a scheduled run, it can be a powerful motivator. Having the support of a strong community will even encourage you to lace up your running shoes on days when you don’t feel like exercising, which often fosters an even stronger sense of belonging and camaraderie.

Social connection

Running can sometimes feel like a solitary endeavour, but it doesn’t have to be. One of the best parts about a running club is that you’ll have so many common interests with the people you’ll meet and run with. Do you sometimes find it difficult to find people who want to talk about running brands, technique tips, and upcoming races? Look no further!

Variety and fun

Running clubs sometimes organise a variety of fun activities to keep the schedule interesting. This could include runs at more challenging locations, hill sprints, or just a community picnic where you can fuel up after all your hard work. Participating in these types of events not only helps with community building but also injects variety into your routine, which is essential for preventing stagnation in your progress.

What running clubs are available in Singapore?

Now that we’ve piqued your interest, let's take a look at some of the running clubs in Singapore that are always happy to receive new members.

Whether you're a seasoned marathon runner or a novice looking to connect with like-minded people, Running Department provides a supportive platform for you to enjoy exercise with others. Join them for both short- and long-distance runs on weekday and weekend mornings.

Singapore Runners Club

Singapore Runners Club (SGRC) is a large and vibrant sports community dedicated to promoting running and healthy living among Singapore residents of all ages and backgrounds. Whether you're a seasoned athlete or just starting your fitness journey, SGRC welcomes everyone to join their inclusive running programs. Regular events include weekly social group runs across scenic routes, as well as workshops and seminars to encourage holistic well-being.

Root Fitness Run Club

A newly established Run Club that hosts four monthly, structured runs that aim to improve different aspects of your running. The Club’s schedule includes 60-m sprint intervals, 400-m long intervals, Fartlek-style, variable-pace runs, and max distance time trials. The data from each run is tracked by the Club’s trainer, who tracks your progress and improvement over time. Sessions typically occur at Evans Stadium every Wednesday from 7 pm.
