Saxmundham Running and Fitness Club (The Saxons)

The Saxons operates as one of the sporting sections of the Saxmundham Sports & Recreational Club, a registered charity that owns the Carlton Park sports ground at Saxmundham in Suffolk. Qualified athletics coach and 11 times British Triathlon Champion, Gordon Merfield, formed The Saxons in March 2005. It has grown from a small club catering mainly for new and inexperienced runners and people wishing to get fit, into a club catering for would-be triathletes and members aiming to compete in the UK and abroad. The club has had success at local level and abroad, up to World Championship levels. The club has good facilities with a 23 acre field, changing rooms and an indoor hall for circuit training. The club is open to ages from 14 upwards and for all abilities from beginners to experienced athletes. The aim of the club is to teach the principles of running and training with the emphasis on having fun while getting fit. The club has a number of coaches offering help and advice.
