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).

Broome Cup Wednesday 10th May 2023
A total of 80 runners took part in the Broome Cup this year, an increase of 30 over last year. The mens race was dominated by 3 runners who stuck together throughout the 4 laps and finished in very fast times for this course just seconds apart, with Jack Dakin (22:27) taking first place just one second ahead of David Narborough (22:28) with Sammy Galpin close behind (22:32). First male vet was Robin Carter (25:52). Clare McKittrick took the honours in the Ladies race (28:47) ahead of Hazel le Cornu (29:32) with Clare also being first Lady vet.
The Pearson Team Trophy for the first team was won in convincing style by team Novel Nuclear 1 (David Narborough, Alex Mayne, Pete Honnibal) with the first all Ladies team being RRH Ladies (Clare McKittrick, Karolina Kucharek, Gillian Whiteside). First Vets team was Team XWB.
