Race Reports Wanted

I notice that we have a lack of race reports coming in.

Chris Elsley does a great job getting reports ready for the newspapers etc.

But it is nice for us armchair runners to read about people’s own experiences. No need to think some one else will have a better report or more racing experience. No need to get all the Harriers times.

It is great that we have a wide range of runners in the club so our reports should reflect this.

Ironman 2018

Ironman is back for 2018 with a NEW run course in and around the town centre!!

Once again Stafford Harriers have been asked to provide volunteers to support the run course.

Our feed station is positioned at the bottom of Martin Drive (Limp Wrist finish area) so its a great place and alot easier to get to.
Also the Kings Horse is not far away for light refreshments during the day.

Date is Sunday 10th June 2018

So once again who is up to help out at this great event?

We’ll put food on as usual.

Please get in touch if you can. (either direct with Darren or via email to



New Complete Beginners Course

We started a new Complete Beginners Course on Monday. But it is not too late to join us.

You’ll be encouraged to jog / walk / jog / walk for gradually increasing longer distances. You will be in a group of people in the same condition as yourself. You’ll soon be jogging continuously and ready to face longer distances.

We offer the first few weeks free of charge so what have you got to loose.

There is no need to pre-register just come along Monday night 6pm for a 6:15pm start at Rowley Stadium (off West Way). Please park in the top car park and walk down to the lower car park (for safety please keep off the road and walk on the grass). We will be on the left hand side of the lower car park (by the bike shed).

Ask for Colin or Kim.

If you can’t make Monday feel free to come along to the Wednesday session.


We are looking at a new design of club vest/T-shirt.

It will maintain the existing stripes but add a more modern look especially to the rear and hope you like the new design. All current design tops will still be able to be worn to races and training sessions, however we have a fairly large stock of tops left.

Until stocks run out ALL sizes of Harriers club vests & T-shirts will be half price!!!

Please speak to Sarah Whyte & Chris Skellern or contact us
