Copyright © Rolls-Royce Harriers Running Club
Membership is £20 per year which includes your personal affiliation to England Athletics and your entry fee for the four events that Rolls-Royce Harriers organise..
The Harriers is the Rolls-Royce Running Club, which has been in existence for over 100 years. We currently have around 130 members, including a mens and a ladies section, and welcome runners of all levels and ability.
We are affiliated to England Athletics, which provides running club members the benefit of reduced entry fees (normally a £2 reduction) for races that they enter; eg Pride Park 10k. Members may use the Moorways track free of charge any lunchtime, plus late afternoons on certain days of the week in summer.
We organise our own 10km race, plus two cross-country races and participate in two winter cross-country leagues. In addition we hold a series of track races during the summer season and enter teams in various regional/national athletics and running events.
British Fell Running Relays 2019
This year’s event is being held on Saturday 19th October near the Ladybower Reservoir in the Peak District and as usual will consist of a relay team of 6, running a selection of legs (2 x individual, 1 x pairs, 1 x pairs orienteering) over rough fell running terrain.
The event always has a fantastic atmosphere and has historically been well attended with teams from the Harriers, even in the far flung reaches of the country. Now that it is closer to home we are hopeful that the level of interest will be high.
It is also a great opportunity to see and compete with some of the UK’s top fell runners.
Due to the nature of the course and a level of navigation required on most of the legs (especially on the orienteering leg), a basic level of fell running kit / experience is required.
Details can be found on the event website at https://britishfellrelays2019.org.uk/
If you are interested in helping to form a team for the event please contact male club captain Robin Carter.
