Buggy Club NI Celebrates 8 Years

Buggy Club NI celebrates its eighth year, with over 1000 people having attended sessions in either Belfast or Banbridge.

Buggy Club NI caters to mums, dads, child minders, granny’s and grandad’s and of course, the babies with many Buggy Clubbers returning for their 2nd, 3rd and even 4th time over the 8 years.

The scheme was set up in 2013 by Athletics NI Para Development Officer, Heather Ardis, to provide parents/ guardians with young children the opportunity to keep fit and active while having fun.

Throughout the years Buggy Club NI have supported members in keeping fit and active through the training sessions, and in the past year, they have raised over £2,500 for charities by completing challenges to help motivate the Buggy Clubbers during lock downs. Buggy Club sessions went virtual with the Buggy Club at Home series, bringing their training sessions to living rooms across Northern Ireland.

Buggy Club holds sessions at the Mary Peters Track on a Monday and Thursday from 10am to 12 noon and at Havelock Park in Banbridge on Tuesdays from 10am- 11:30am. Each of the sessions includes a range of activities from warm ups, body core exercises, hill runs and runs on the track and footpath. Everything is done at a pace to suit the individual and all session are led by Athletics NI qualified coaches.
