The Saxons - Saxmundham

General Details

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.
