Welcome to the HHAC Road Section

Get involved in our road championship and club team events.

Whether you’re new to running or the next Olympian, Holmfirth Harriers can help you to achieve your running potential.

The club provides a varied program of activities including speed work, interval and circuit training, strength and conditioning sessions in addition to the weekly Tuesday and Thursday night runs – all designed to help you reach your peak!

Our athletes compete at many levels and at all distances – from local parkruns (a great introduction to running/racing) to international marathons – and have had many successes at local, regional and national level.

Club Road Championship

Every calendar year the road section holds a championship for all club members. Throughout the year athletes compete in a selection of races from 5k to half marathon distance. Points are attributed to performance and there is a winner for male, female, and age-graded categories.

Summer/Winter Championship

Alongside the main road championship is the summer cup consisting of club-only races. The races for the summer cup are the Club 5 mile, 10 mile and the Holmfirth 10k. All races are handicapped and the summer cup winner is calculated using the aggregated time across the three races!

The winter cup works in a similar fashion, consisting of the Tinker Cup, Club 6 mile and Point to Point.

Get involved

If you’re interested in taking part or want to know more please drop me an email or catch me or any of the group leaders or club officials on a club night.
