Merry Christmas & Goodbye 2023


So... here it is, Merry Christmas and everybody was having fun on our last run of 2023!
We had members out and about in festive dress for a nice chilled final run of the year that lead us into neighbouring East Hagbourne and back to Boundary Park for something completely new; a fireside chat (complete mince pies with real fake fireplace!).
Rich and some of our more experienced members took the time to talk through their experiences of running longer distance races including how they find it best to train and prepare ahead of a race, what sort of things you should look out for and expect during races and how to keep up motivation afterwards so those good habits don't stop at the finish line.
It's been another incredible year for the Harwell Harriers and here are just some of the things we are most proud of:
  • Rich and Lisa have joined our amazing coaching team
  • We have been a fore-runner in working with England Athletics around new Health & Safety policy
  • Our fantastic Connor McGurk finished 2nd in the Oxfordshire Grand Prix
  • New members have joined us - we love meeting new people ❤️
  • We introduced new socials every first Thursday of the month
  • In March we did our first ever foodbank run
  • Our members continued volunteering at various community events and parkruns
  • We've also been working away to improve documentation and processes within the committee - less admin = more running!

Finally we would like to say a big thankyou to all our members for their continued support, our coaching and run leading team for all the time the give to make sure each session is the best it can be and all of our committee for keeping the club running seamlessly.

We really hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and a new year and we will see you again on the 2nd of January for our first club run of 2024 and probably our second day of hangover from new year's eve!

Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas!
