I'm home before 6.30 pm, and I work 35 miles from home.
I'd guess that many people are home by then, otherwise the the clubs would have no runners showing up.
It also allows time for a decent run and then something to eat when you get home, all before bed time.
If you want to take advantage of coaching, etc., you'll need to find a way to get to the club. Can't you change your hours for one day a week?
How much do clubs charge for membership on average? Joining a running/athletics club might be fun.
All my local clubs start at 6:00 / 6:30 and I work 60 miles from home so also no good for me either.
How about runs before work, I get up really early to run (04:30) and have the whole day ahead of me. Couldnt imagine me doing that a few years ago but now I wouldnt have it any other way.
You could try the Serpentine Running Club, they are central London.
Membership of my club is £12.50 a year.
Membership of UKA is not necessarily included in club membership fees, so worth checking whether it is or not (if you want to get the discount on race entry).
My club doesn't include it, it's extra for those who want it, as not all members enter races.
Tell me about it - if I had this interest in running when I was ten, maybe I would've been with Jess, Mo and company as we speak!
Regarding running clubs, do they all require membership? My local one look like they'll require £49 a year and £3.50 per session - aren't there any where you can just turn up and pay the one off fee without a hefty membership fee?
I'm very unlikely to start becoming 'competitive' - I just want somewhere where I can run with others round an athletics track from time to time. None of my friends are into running, no matter how much I try to convince them otherwise.
If you'd like to join a club for free see www.londoncityrunners.com
We set off at 7.15pm on Tuesdays.
A lot of clubs have an unoffical run on a Sunday morning, you could join a club and then run with them on a Sunday. You would also receive the benefits of discounted race fees by been in a club.
When you are not working you could run with them during the week.
Lots of clubs round us run on Sundays. Can't you join a club near work? I sometimes struggle to make the 6pm start at mine, but if it was a problem constantly I would join one of the clubs between work and home.
