About Harwell Harriers

Harwell Harriers was established in 2016 by a group of like minded individuals wanting to build a community of runners. Since it was first established the Harriers have gone from strength to strength and are now a staple part of the South Oxfordshire running scene. Our vibrant green kit can regularly be seen at local and regional races, charity runs such as the Didcot 5, Chiltern Chase, Wallingford 10k as well as Oxford and Reading Half marathons.

Harwell Harriers regularly participate and volunteer at our local Didcot Parkrun, and provide pacers for their regular pacing events. 

We also hold our own Club Championship where you can pit yourself against your fellow Harriers if the above wasn't enough!

If this sounds as good to you as it does to us then come and give us try.
