Due to the current covid-19 pandemic and restrictions,  BBDRC is unable to run Beginners’ sessions as planned.

We will however be resuming these sessions once it is safe and appropriate to do so.  If you would like to register your interest in the next course please complete the form below, and one of our coaching team will contact you when information becomes available.  

In 2020, Bungay Black Dog Running Club will again be hosting a series of six week Beginners Running and Fitness courses starting on the following dates.

18th April

12th June

4th September (Friday Mornings) 

Please check back here as more information will be available three or four weeks prior to the course starting.

The sessions are run by our club’s qualified UKA coaches and last for one hour.  We welcome adults of all ages, abilities and levels of fitness, and you are encouraged to work at your own pace.

The course takes place in a traffic-free environment on our private field at Bungay Area Running Centre (BARC), which is

located near the Maltings Pavilion, Pirnhow Street, Ditchingham.

You will learn about warming up, drills and stretches, but most importantly, you will have fun.

Adults who may have tried running as a way of getting fit but struggled on their own.

People who used to run but have had a break from running, due to families, careers etc.

People wanting to complete a personal challenge or new hobby

People trying to improve their health and fitness, lose weight, lifestyle change.

People new to the area who want to get out, explore the countryside and meet lots of slightly mad lycra clad folk.

Complete the form and we will contact shortly before the first beginners session with some detailed information of exactly what to expect.

We really hope this will put your mind at ease and encourage to take the first steps in what will be a fun and friendly course.

By registering your interest you are not committing yourself to attending simply allowing us to make contact with prior to the first session

I have just signed up for my 1st 10K race @ Wymondham on 24/11. I would not have been able to even think about this without the beginners course earlier this year, the coaching sessions since, and the encouragement from everyone I have met at the club.

I completed the beginners course in 2016. When I started I couldn’t run to the end of my road. Being taught by a qualified coach and progressing together, as a group, all supporting each other was key for me. I would never have done it on my own.
