Staffs Knot 2018

In less than 1 week we will be hosting our next event.

We can’t host this type of event with the help and hard work of our members.

We encourage you all to think if you are going to take part. Please go on-line and sign up, don’t leave it too late and miss out.

Even if you are taking part please consider if you can help us out in the afternoon or the evening (parking, registration). If you can spare some time in the day to set up the course you will be very welcome. The more people we get to help the easier it is on everyone.

If you can help them drop us an email or go to our contact page. If you can tell us if you can help in the day, day & night or just night. we can assign you some important tasks.

Have you thought of becoming a session leader ?

In the last 7 months eight coaches/leaders have had to stop taking running sessions (one will return once they have recovered from injury).

3 of the 8 have left the Harriers: Paul Foster, Craig Baxter, Karen Murray

Can you help ?

Have you thought of becoming a session leader ?

If you have please talk with one of existing leaders and find out how to get involved.

Sunday Road run will be suspended until further notice.

The number of people attending the Sunday Road run in the summer has been very low, combined with the reduced number of session leaders we have decided to suspend the session.

We regret this action, but we have to ensure our sessions are safe.
