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 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.
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.
