About the Club
Bungay Black Dog Running Club meets for weekly training sessions at the Sports Hall and use the High School track during the summer months. Track events are held in the summer as well as a regular programme of cross country and road races throughout the year.
We meet every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday evenings. On Tuesday evening we meet 18:30–19:30 for speed training, repetitions and hill sessions with our Athletics Coaches. Wednesday evening we have a gym session 19:00–20:00. This is based on strength & conditioning, core strength and balance. This is an opportunity to do some cross training. Thursdays we have various runs available starting at 18:00 and 18:30. Followed by refreshments and announcements at 19:30. We welcome people of all abilities and ages.
Bungay Marathon and Half Marathon have been held annually in April since 1982 and after the first one, the Black Dog Running Club was formed. There is also a very popular fun run and all the profits from the three races goes to a nominated charity.
The Bungay Black Dog Running club holds a 10k race on Good Friday every year, and the proceeds from the race are presented to a local charity. However, we hold many other races, including our summer evening series of 10k races. In fact, there is hardly a month without a race of race of some sorts!.
We have the increasingly popular Great East Run, a ½ marathon (previously 20k) & a 10k race through the picturesque and rural area known as "The Saints". Click on the "Races" tab for details of of all our races!
We also hold our Summer series of 10km races at Ditchingham Maltings from June to August- these are held on a Wednesday evening at 7:30. Then there is the infamous Groggy Doggy Boxing day Cross Country run on Bungay Common.
