Club Leader of The Year... Almost

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.

We've been lucky enough to have some great leaders in the Harwell Harriers who have helped to promote and grow a positive and friendly vibe within the club.

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.

We are looking forward to another astonishing year here at the Harwell Harriers so if you were looking for an endorsement of whether to give us a try they don't come much better than this!

Do they know it's Christmas time at all? ?


That's right Harriers it's time to put on your party pants, your boogie bloomers or your up-town undies because this years Christmas party is nearly upon us!

For those of you who haven't yet bought tickets well... 20 burpees for you, I'm very disappointed!

Finished them? great! For those who haven't yet bought tickets it costs just £5 and this gets you 5 free raffle tickets with more available on the night to win some genuinely fantastic prizes. That £5 will also pay for DJ and a whole bunch of pizzas to munch on throughout the night as well being able to party with the greatest running club around.

Buying tickets is super easy just click the link in the weekly emails and away you go. If you didn't get an email talk to one of the committee or run leaders and we'll get you a payment link. From there your hard working committe will beaver away in the background to make sure your name is on the list. Click, pay, that's it. No really!

Well, what are you waiting for? Go get yourself a ticket, we can't wait to see you there!

It's Cross Country time!


It's that time, Oxfordshire cross country league is back again!

It might be wet, it might be windy, it might be muddy... it might be VERY muddy but it's guaranteed to be good fun. We always try to field a team of runners for the OXC league and this year is no different so if you are returning as a seasoned XC runner or if you just want to give it a try please get in touch with our lovely chairperson and we'd love to have you on board.

Quick heads up the pricing structure has changed a little this year so make sure you are up to date with all the latest info.

See you there Harriers!

BP Affiliation

We're affiliated with Boundary Park!

 Boundary Park Pavillion

It's official - it's Facebook official - the Harwell Harriers are now affiliated with Boundary Park.

We start most of our runs outside the Boundary Park sports pavillion but we have never "officially" been allowed to warmup in their car park or use their facilities, thankfully pavillion has always accomodated and accepting of our running club. We have spoken many times about the option of affiliating with the sports paviliion and have decided that now is time to put our stamp on the local community and share the love with Boundary Park.

What does affiliation mean for us? Well, most importantly, we get to have official use of their facilities which means full use of their toilets and changing rooms as well as a place to keep warm before the winter nights instead of huddling together like penguins outside!

We will also have free use of their social room so we will be able to offer more free (or at least very cheap) social nights going forwards as well as a gauranteed place for our committee and coaches to host monthly meetings.

We will get our club kit proudly framed and displayed inside the bar area as a reminder of why you deserve that drink... or perhaps why you need to go for a run the next day!
