On 31st March 1996 Beccles Athletic Club and Lowestoft Athletic Club merged to form Waveney Valley Athletics Club. The club offers competition and training opportunities for senior runners over the age of 16. Junior runners are welcome with a responsible adult.

During the winter the club competes in the Suffolk Cross-Country League.

The club offers a very active road-running programme, for road runners in the Lowestoft, Beccles and Waveney area. We organise and stage three road races through the year; the Lowestoft Scores Race, 10 mile Turkey Trot race in Beccles, and the Mutford Road Relay.

We also organise social events throughout the year including the infamous Somerleyton Dukes Head pub run.

The Club offers training throughout the year come rain, hail or shine and we are fortunate to have coaches who are always happy to help and be there to organise the training sessions. You are always welcome to come along and give us a try for a week before joining the club. For more details, see the training section.

Club standard certificates are presented once year at our annual general meeting / awards evening.
