Stepping it up in Abingdon

Abo Marathon

A big congratulations/thank you to Nichola Poulton and Kate Brook who have single double-handedly saved the local Abingdon marathon!

Abingdon marathon have been looking out for a new Race Director this year with fears that if the position wasn't filled then the event would have to be cancelled. Well... they got more than they bargained for as they got 2 fabulous new Race Directors.

Thanks for saving this local race ladies!

Helping the community

Mixed emotions at last Thursday's run as the Harriers did a literal foodbank run! Roughly 20 of our members picked up packets of rice, pasta and cerals, cartons of milk, tins for vegetable, fish and meat from our regular starting point at Boundary park and ran them all to our local food bank about a mile away.

For the Harriers it was a fun and rewarding experience to load up with food and to donate it to those most in need whilst also using the fiirst mile as extra strength training but arriving at the food bank it was fairly disheartening to hear how many families in the local area have to rely on this service.

We are really proud of all of our members who donated items and helped to take it all to the foodbank and hope we can make this a more regular occurance.


The Season for Giving

The Season for Giving

We are pleased to announce that we have given a £500 donation to the Earth Trust. This has been part of the Big Give Christmas challenge which means our funds have been matched to give this local charity an incredible £1,000.

the Earth Trust does fantastic work locally to inspire people to address climate issues, biodiversity and personal wellbeing with the power of natural green spaces.

The Earth Trust cares for the Wittenham Clumps which is the location of some of most challenging and memorable club sessions. They have always been very welcoming and supportive of the Harwell Harriers so it feels great to be able to give back to give back to the community.

A huge congratulations to our wonderful chair person Nichola Poulton for being runner up in the England Athletics' Regional Volunteer Awards for club of the year.

This award really goes to show the great work Nichola has done over the last few years along with the time she has given to help make this club what it is.
