Another of your local running clubs is Blackheath and Bromley Harriers AC, who are based in Hayes.  BBHAC celebrate their 150th anniversary in 2019.  They have a great tradition of athletics, whether it be track and field or road running.  They welcome runners and athletes of all standards and are happy to offer advice to new members.

The club has a tremendous athletics reputation but one of the proudest traditions of the club is that the door is always open to athletes of all standards and abilities.
