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 is cancelled due to the Covid-19 Lock down. Please note we cannot hold the Club Open Day, club days as had hoped currently. The work in progress programme has had some cancellations for some Centre events too - down the track we will be able to circulate an adjusted programme when things calm down and things are clearer.
Till then stay safe, stay well and be kind to others.
