Intro to Racing with the Harriers - 2013

Joe Percy Team
Have you fancied having a go at racing but don’t know where to start, worried about coming last or not being good enough?

Then this is for you. We’ve decided to run an ‘introduction to races’ with Holmfirth Harriers, to provide all senior runners regardless of ability or which Harriers group you run with, an opportunity to enjoy races with like minded souls. Some of the events will feature in the Harriers Road Championships and the idea is to let you try out some of the different race events which the Harriers compete in and/or organise.

These races include some club events, local races including cross country, a fell and a veteran race. Don’t worry if you haven’t reached 35 yet you can still take part and meet the very friendly veteran competitors. Distances vary too from 3 miles up to 10 miles. Choose which races you fancy having a go at and enter online or put your name down on the boards at Neiley for the Club events.

london-marathon-2012Rowan Eastwood, who runs at the very back of the Jackals, will be taking part in most of the races and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about racing etc. Do get in touch either on a club night, by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or send me a message on Facebook.

Please note this is an open invitation to all members new to racing to try the events below.
