This group caters for athletes who compete in races from sprints through to middle distance.

The training sessions are devised and structured to ensure that all participants can improve their speed, speed endurance, strength and running technique. Some of the sessions are done together as a one group but where appropriate, different sessions are run concurrently to ensure the development needs of individual athletes are met.

It is important to note that this is a competitive group. Alongside the aim of developing each individual athlete there is also an expectation that the athletes make themselves available to compete for the club. We are training with the following club competitions in mind: West Yorkshire Track and Field League, Northern Track and Field League, County and Regional Track and Field Championships, West Yorkshire Cross Country League, and the Regional Road Relays.

The group meets at 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays all year round at Neiley. Additionally, we run a weekly session at Leeds Road Track, Huddersfield on either Saturday or Sunday mornings.

In brief, the following criteria need to be met to join this group:

  1. Aged at least 14
  2. Member of Holmfirth Harriers
  3. Committed to competing for the club
  4. Be physically fit enough to cope with the training

Speed is a key element not only in sprinters, but jumpers, throwers and middle distance athletes alike…
