Racing

The Harrier’s racing teams are competitive, but we are still able to have some fun! All members are welcome to join a race team but equally, if this isn’t for you, there’s no pressure to compete.

We enter and support teams in numerous events across the county and beyond such as the North Staffs Road Running Association, (NSRRA) the North Staffs Cross Country League
(NSCCL) and increasingly National and Regional Masters competitions, for those aged over 35 years.

If you’d like to race in a club team event, like the cross-country league, please register your interest (or lack of interest) with the Race Managers (Sadie Prince and Dave Nimmo) and the Men’s and Women’s Team Captains (James Simpson and Claire Kivlin).

Men’s Road Championship : Premier Division 10 best races 1 of which must be 5K and 1 a Half Marathon , Divisions 1 2 & 3 best 8 any distance, Division 4, best 6 any distance.

Ladies Road Championship : Premier Division 8 best races 1 of which must be 5K and 1 a Half Marathon, Divisions 1 & 2 best 6 any distance, Division 3, best 4 any distance.

Note: The 5K and Half Marathon times will only be included in overall percentage calculation if the are among the best 8/10 otherwise they are necessary to demonstrate a range of distances completed.
