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

The organisers have decided to opt for another Virtual Ekiden this season due to the uncertainty caused by the Pandemic (and the need for them to have booked the venue in advance in uncertain circumstances).
Never-the less the Virtual Event was very popular last season and many of you really enjoyed taking part – so here we go again!
Please let us know at bbac2014@outlook.com if you would be interested in taking part again this season? More details can be found at the link below.
This will be free to enter and takes the same form as the real Ekiden, which for adults (age 16+, or 15 can do 5k) is a 26.2 mile race covered by a team of 6, with 1x 7.2km, 2x 10km and 3x 5km. Juniors are in teams of 4, doing a mile each.
It takes place from 00:01 Friday 9th July to 6 pm Sunday 11th July, with all results to be submitted/uploaded ideally by 11 pm on 11th July.
Runs must be recorded using an electronic device, e.g. Garmin, Strava, etc, and the route chosen should start and finish at the same place (out and back routes therefore suggested).
All runners must be club members.
Full details here. Please let us know if you are interested.
