WELCOME TO THE BECCLES & BUNGAY HARRIERS

BECCLES - THURSDAY NEW
Welcome to our running and junior athletics club which is based in Beccles and Bungay.
We are a small but friendly club with about 130 members. We welcome new members of all abilities, from beginners to more serious runners. Adults and juniors can come along to one or both of our training evenings.
On Tuesday evenings we train at Bungay High School (Summer Months) or Earsham Playing Field (Winter Months) and on Thursday evenings at Sir John Leman High School, Beccles. Both run from 6.45-8.15pm.
You will be guaranteed a warm welcome.
First session free, then £1.50 per session.
Note:
During the Pandemic, when training has been possible, the times of our sessions has changed (and in some cases split into two 45-minute sessions) to accommodate as many athletes as possible but still within a Corvid Safe Environment. Our sessions must be pre-booked (via our website) – so that we can manage numbers effectively.
Session One is 6.30 to 7.15pm (with individuals to warm up and cool down on their own)
Session Two is 7.15 to 8pm (with individuals to warm up and cool down on their own)

If you are interested please contact Gary Howe (Membership Secretary) on 07761 474313 or email gary.howe@btinternet.com or the general club email of bbac2014@outlook.com

Ekiden 2021

Well it was not only Wimbledon and the Euro's going on at the weekend - it was also the Virtual Ekiden Team Relays!

We were very well represented as a club this season with 6 adult teams, (total 36 athletes) and 5 junior teams (20 junior athletes) running between Friday 9th to Sunday 11th of July. Everybody was able to chose their own route, but an 'out and back' or loop was recommended to keep the terrain equal (not just all downhill!).

We had a few achieving Pb's or near (Harry Neale, Harry Wadsworth); a few of our Beginners entering for the first time (Paula C, Rainy, Natalie H, Vicky I, Helen J and Maxine) - all very well done; one who went on to do a Triathlon the next day (Suzannah) and one who ran a 10K twice - (Emma Keal) - don't ask!

It is amazing how this competition seems to be enjoyed by all who enter and it certainly brings out the best in terms of support and encouragement from teammates (on facebook).

 

Below are the results
