WELCOME TO THE BECCLES & BUNGAY HARRIERS
Welcome to our running and junior athletics club which is based in Beccles and Bungay, Suffolk. We are a family friendly club with over 100 adult members and 70 juniors. 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) are coached by Gary Howe and Mike White, including 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.
If you are interested please contact Gary Howe (Membership Secretary) on 07761 474313 or email email@example.com or the general club email of firstname.lastname@example.org

RED JANUARY 2019
Throughout the month of January, a large group of Harriers have been actively supporting Red January, raising money and awareness for Mind, the mental health charity, a community initiative that encourages you to support your mental health by doing something active every single day. It has been amazing to see the amount of effort and determination that our athletes have been putting into this every single day by running, walking, swimming, working out, taking part in exercise classes, canicross running, home workouts - a lot of time, effort, commitment and energy - well done everybody, just brilliant! We all have our personal challenges and to highlight this cause is very important. Participation in regular physical activity can increase our self-esteem and can reduce stress and anxiety. It also plays a role in preventing the development of mental health problems and in improving the quality of life of people experiencing mental health problems, therefore, running is excellent for both our physical and mental health, the more we can get this message out there and get others joining in the better!
