Ready to Start Your Own Affiliate FFP Running Club?

We are dedicated to building “free” social running clubs around the world.

How Do I Start My Own Affiliate FFP Running Club?

I. Find a perfect host venue.
This is ideally a large pub that is well known in the community that can comfortably accommodate your projected number of weekly participants.

II. Determine a safe run route.
The run route should start and end at the pub and be approximately 5k in length. A safe run route that avoids high traffic areas and busy street crossings is of the utmost importance.

III. Identify people to run the club.
One person who will be the club organizer and first acting club President along with a small team of volunteers who will work to handle all weekly activities before the first club Officers are elected.

What’s Next?

Once the above three steps are established, FFP Running Clubs (FFPRC) will assist in securing the host venue as the Title Sponsor. National or Regional Sponsors may also be introduced by FFPRC but the club organizer should identify several local businesses that can be approached as potential club sponsors. Potential local sponsors should operate businesses that are in alignment with the “Fitness, Fun, and Philanthropy” goals of the running club and may include but are not limited to the following types of businesses:

  • Running Store/Sporting Goods Store
  • Fitness Apparel/Supplies Business
  • Health Club
  • Yoga Studio/ Crossfit Gym/ Personal Training Business
  • Healthy Food/Snacks Business
  • Restaurants
  • Massage Therapy/ Physical Rehabilitation
