The September "5K Time Trial" for Craig's Wednesday Improvers group & Wednesday Juniors will take place on 9th September.

In order to help monitor your progress, we have decided that 3 to 4 times every year (during Summer months only) to meet @ Castlefields car park

and run a 5k time trial along the disused railway. Each time you run your performance will be logged and then we can chart each individuals progress

which we can monitor and help to see your development as a result of the hard effort put in at training.


The Next run is instead of training on Wednesday 9th Sept. (there will be no Juniors or Craig's session @ Rowley park)


Meet @ Castlefields’ Car park at 6pm (normal time) – finish by 7pm as normal - All harriers welcome to take part!!!


Please come dressed in normal running gear & please bring a drink.

“If possible please bring 4 x safety pins for your race numbers”


Thanks Ian




The next complete beginners group will start 14th September 2015


The group will meet at Rowley Park at 6:15pm on the lower car park. There is no need to preregister, no need to prejoin the club or even email us. Come along and meet us.

The group is open to anyone, if you have any medical history or you are unsure then please talk to your doctor before coming along.

During the first few sessions there will be advise on buying the right footware, so please don’t rush out and buy new shoes for the first session.

Your first session will consist of introductions, talk about our club, some basic rules, talk about kit and then the first session.

We will start with running and walking within Rowley Park on the edge of playing fields. The park isn’t totally flat but we start slowly and gradually build on this over the 14 weeks.

The plan is 14 weeks with 3 sessions a week:-


Monday night - 6-15pm Rowley Park

Wednesday night - 6-15pm Rowley Park

Friday or Saturday - we need you to commit to doing by yourself.

The Kate Burge Sea-to-Summit 11th October 2015


Dear Harriers,

I'd like to remind your members of this forthcoming event. It is to celebrate the life and considerable achievements of one of your club stalwarts, Kate Burge.
The race is on the Isle of Man, where Kate made her home. In true homage this is a hard race; 950m ascent in 10K! But the scenery is spectacular, the air is clear and your mission worthy.   
I'm hoping for this to become an annual event, however this requires a certain amount of success of the inaugural event. Please come and join us, you will be welcome.
