What is Harriers?
Harriers is generally characterised as middle to long distance running (and walking) events from 1500m and up. These can range from cross-country events to road races with a large degree of variety between each event.
On our club days, we set off in packs according to individual speed from slow to medium and fast. These are social runs and walks, and are usually around an hour, after which we return for a cuppa and afternoon tea together.
The harrier season runs from early April until early October. Harriers run from the venue for their club runs - you can find the variation of events on the Winter Programme on this site most Saturdays during this period.
***Club Open Day 4th April 2020 was cancelled due to the Covid-19 Lock down. We have resumed club runs and walks, and events. The programme has had some cancellations for some Centre events - as at 14th July 2020 we have uploaded the programme which can be found on the front page of this website. The programme has been planned to the best of our ability - however given Level 1 Covid-19 we cannot know if adjustments need to be made at any stage. However you can see Events on this website, or like us on Facebook or refer to the ODT/Midweeker Sports Draw section for details of what we are doing as a club.
