Saint Edmund Pacers is a friendly running club that welcomes new and experienced runners of all ages and abilities.

We meet twice-weekly, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6.30pm - 7.45pm, for coach-led training sessions at The Athletics Arena at Abbeycroft Leisure in Bury St Edmunds. There are also organised longer road runs on Sunday mornings and most Friday nights as well as hill training on Tuesday evenings.  Please see this week's training run schedule under "Latest Club News" on the home page.

New members are welcome at any time and are encouraged to try out a couple of sessions before joining us.  If you are interested in coming along and would like to know more then please email us at secretary@pacers.org.uk.

Membership Details

Pacers welcomes young runners of all abilities to come along and take part in Junior Pacer track sessions. There are two age groups: nominally 6-10 year olds and 11-16 year olds, although we only move children up to the next category when they feel ready to do so. 

Training sessions for the younger age group are held on Monday evenings from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.

The older age group also train on Mondays from 6.30pm to 7.45pm, as well as Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm to 7.45pm.

Our sessions are run by UK Athletics qualified coaches who are all DBS checked. We can cater for all athletic abilities and new members are always welcome.

Please do contact us on secretary@pacers.org.uk if you are interested in your child joining us for a couple of trial sessions.  Alternatively just come along on a Monday evening and go to the hut located by the track where someone will be happy to help.
