Running Club

Welcome to the Rolls-Royce Harriers Running Club

The Harriers is the Rolls-Royce Running Club, which has been in existence for over 100 years. We currently have around 90 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; e.g Pride Park 10k. Members may use the Moorways track free of charge any lunchtime.

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.

​Membership is £22 per year (from 2023) which includes your personal affiliation to England Athletics and your entry fee for the four events that Rolls-Royce Harriers organise (£5 for second claim members and non-competitors).
