Probably the best little running club in the world...

At Harwich Runners, we appreciate that joining a running club can feel a little daunting but we pride ourselves on being able to offer something to every ability level - whether you're trying running for the first time, returning after years off or performing at regional, national or international levels. Our members come from all over the area and from all walks of life to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and varied training that is offered every Tuesday throughout the year.

The club was originally founded in 1982 by British international decathlete Roy Snow to encourage all local residents to become more active. This philosophy continues to this day and now with over 150 members, covering veterans, adults, ladies and juniors, you're sure to find a friendly group of similar ability people that will encourage you with your desired goal.

Meeting Details

We meet every Tuesday at 7:45pm upstairs at the Harwich & Dovercourt Rugby Club near the swimming pool. Our sessions are taken by a group of our members who have become qualified coaches and overseen by our club coach, Miranda. We offer two sessions: 6:30pm and 8:00pm. Parish notes are read 15minutes before the sessions start.

Interested in joining?

Feel free to come along on any Tuesday for a trial, you won't be pressured to join and you are more than welcome to come two or three times before making up your mind. When you are sure this is what you can expect to pay for your annual membership...

Remember that's it; no weekly subs, a free tea or coffee back at the club house afterwards and plenty of other benefits
