Bournville Harriers (BvH) may be a relatively new club in Birmingham, but our members are all keen to continue to improve their running skills while ensuring that running remains enjoyable.
Many of our members have a wealth of experience – and plenty of stories to tell - which they’ll willingly share with anyone to help them achieve their running goals. We also have fourteen licensed UK:Athletics coaches on hand to offer advice and training plans.
Our members compete in both road running and cross country races throughout the UK - from the National Cross Country Championships to local fun runs. We also stage two of our own races each year – a 10K run through Bournville and Northfield and aYacht Handicap event.
And it’s not just about running. The Club has a lively social side with events organised throughout the year. Come along and see if you’d like to join us.
Your questions answered!
Where can I find you?
Rowheath Pavilion on Heath Road in Bournville, South Birmingham, B30 1HH.
What training do you do?
The Club meets every Monday and Thursday from 7.15pm. We welcome people of all abilities and have a range of informal running groups to meet all standards. Just choose which group you want to run with depending on how lively you’re feeling and how heavy your legs are each week. There are also generally groups that meet up at the weekend for longer training runs, particularly in the run-up to the Virgin London Marathon.
Can I turn up or do I have to join first?
You can turn up and give the club a try for a few weeks before you have to commit to membership.
I am only looking to train for the Virgin London Marathon, how will I find others to train with?
Many club members will also be training, and by asking around or consulting our website, you’ll be able to find training partners of a similar standard.
