As the evenings are now starting to draw in, we would like to take the opportunity to remind members that "hi-viz and reflective" clothing must be worn for club sessions.

We only have a limited supply of hi-viz at the school so please remember that for your safety it is your responsibility to make sure that you have something available.  Runners without hi-viz will not be able to join the sessions.

Below is an example of an acceptable outer layer:

Thanks in advance for your cooperation with this.

Wednesday Night Session Car Parking

posted 29 Feb 2016, 10:52 by Neil Grigg

When using the car par at Burgess Hill School for Girls, please remember the following:
  • Please only park in the allotted spaces
  • Please do not to obstruct the minibus bays as access is needed
  • Please do not to park in front of any spaces if cones have been placed there
  • The car park is a one way system 
  • There is also a car park by the junior school, which is the car park closest to Silverdale Road
There are so many of us now on Wednesday evening that parking can be an issue.  Please ensure you leave plenty of time, consider car sharing or using alternative parking along Keymer Road, Silverdale Road, Ferndale Road or Oak Hall Park.

Thank you all for your co-operation.

Mid Sussex Triathlon Club - Collaboration

posted 12 Jul 2014, 02:53 by Jon Lavis   [ updated 12 Jul 2014, 04:48 ]


Due to the close links that we have with the Mid Sussex Tri Club, we have been working together to offer members of both clubs the chance to take advantage of each others benefits.

You may have already seen a link to MSTC on our website but see below a list of options that are available to all of our members 

Email from Pete Harris of MSTC:

We are keen to forge closer links and I've been keeping our committee appraised of developments.  What you have listed below is really constructive and I'm sure some of our members will be interested in taking advantage of the track sessions, pub runs and longer Sunday runs.  We already have a number of joint members and I can only see this increasing.  However, I'm pleased that we are exploring ways our members can make use of each others facilities without necessarily having the expense of joining both clubs.  I can see benefits to BHR members who might have temporary injuries and be unable to run but could still cycle or swim and thereby help maintain CV fitness, and equally there are benefits to MSTC members who might need more intensive run training e.g. those embarking on Ironman distance events for whom your "long runs" would be excellent.
The following are things that Mid Sussex Tri Club can offer BHR members 
  • coached swim sessions/lessons for beginners,
  • indoor turbo bike sessions for anyone that happens to have a turbo trainer (winter period) and our Thursday night spin and body conditioning (stretch) classes held at the Dolphin LC all year round.  We've already had several BHR members attend our spin class (there is a nominal charge of £1 to cover the costs or room hire for MSTC and BHR members alike),
  • we are planning to host a cross country event on a country estate later in the year which may be of interest to BHR members,
  • we run junior "Tri-Hub" training events throughout the year in an attempt to introduce triathlon to younger members in case any of you have kids that might be interested,
  • we do open water swimming in Ardingly Reservoir in the summer months (Tuesday evening and Saturday morning) but you need a wetsuit for these and because of the hoops we have had to jump through with Ardingly Reservoir Activity Centre and South East Water all open water swimmers do need to be a member of MSTC,
  • we could possibly open up our weekend bike rides to BHR members.  These are organised by different members usually via our (closed) Facebook group but I could publicise details to you as these are arranged,
  • we also offer potential members 3-4 freebie sessions before actually joining MSTC in the same way that you do.

Members Area - Access Instructions

posted 5 Jul 2014, 09:34 by Jon Lavis   [ updated 3 Feb 2017, 14:52 by BurgessHill Runners ]

We recently circulated recently how you could find the School door code in the Members Area of the website, now that we are not allowed to leave it on the latch. I know Martin has tried to pass on how to do it as well. So its my turn again... attached are two images I created a while ago to illustrate, with a red arrow where to find a) the sign in & then b) the Members Area. To sign in you will need to be viewing the website in Desktop view not Mobile view. Where that option is depends ...on the device you are using. To sign in use the email address you provided for Google groups and the password for that email account. Once signed into the Members Area bookmark the page and then you wont have to sign in every time. If you are not a member of the BHR Google Group you wont be able to sign in. In the Members Area you will find not only the door code, but AGM material and other items appertaining to the running of the club. If you are a Coach/Leader this process will also reveal the Coaches Area button.
