WELCOME TO THE BECCLES & BUNGAY HARRIERS

BECCLES - THURSDAY NEW

Welcome to our running and junior athletics club which is based in Beccles and Bungay, Suffolk.  We are a family friendly club with over 230 adult and junior members.  We welcome new members of all abilities, from beginners to experienced runners.  Members are welcome to join in either or both of our running training evenings.

On Tuesday evenings we train at Earsham Playing Field (Earsham during the Winter and at Bungay High School during the Summer months), session time - 6.45pm to 8.15pm - registration from 6.45pm, sessions start at 7pm.

On Thursday evenings we train at Sir John Leman High School Track. Session Time - 6.45pm to 8.15pm - registration from 6.45pm, sessions start at 7pm.

Head Coach, Lynn Emmett organises track sessions whilst other Road Running Coaches and Run Leaders provide an alternative to track including speed sessions, road runs including efforts, hill sessions and long runs, this enables us to provide adults with a choice of sessions to suit their individual needs and goals.

The juniors train at the same time (and location) as the adults, coached in separate sessions.  The more experienced and competitive juniors train with Coach Stephen Harvey whilst the younger Juniors  (7-11 years) have  variety of coaches, all experienced in coaching athletics activities such as throwing and long jump (mostly in the Summer).

On Monday and Friday evenings in the winter months the club provides indoor 'Sportshall' Athletics for 7-15 year olds. Monday evenings are at Bungay High School (6-7pm) and Friday evenings are at Sir John Leman High School (5-6pm). Both sessions are competitive and fun, all new members will be made very welcome.

With all of our training sessions, your first session is free, then just £1.50 per session.

CALLING ALL RUNNERS!🚶‍♂️🏃‍♀️🚶‍♂️

The lockdown has meant that many of us have taken the opportunity to start jogging/running to keep a bit fit. It's been just about the only form of exercise that could be done without other people!

As the lockdown has eased it has been possible to run with a friend/family - to also satisfy the need for a friendly chat at the same time.👫👭👬

Now that the lockdown is easing still further we have re-introduced our training sessions at Beccles but in a very controlled way to ensure we conform to government guidelines and keep safe.

We are now looking to encourage new runners to our sessions whether it's to train on the field, try a hill session or do a social road run with other like-minded people.

If you are looking for somewhere to start or know someone who might be interested - do contact us at bbhac2014@outlook.com We'd love to hear from you!
