Tadcaster Harriers Running Club

Welcome to Tadcaster Harriers ....

Home

Welcome to Tadcaster Harriers. We are a thriving running club meeting once a week for organised training sessions and competing in Road, Cross Country, Trail, Fell and Ultra races.

If you are already a member, then use the links on the menu above to find out about planned Training sessions, upcoming Races, Results and Social events. There is also a link to the Club Shop and a News archive.

If you are thinking of joining, then what are you waiting for ? We meet for training on Tuesday nights at Tadcaster Magnets Sport and Social Club and we are always keen to attract new members. There is no need to be a particularly fast runner and there is no obligation to turn up regularly. A lot of our members have family and work commitments and just come down to the club when they can. Find out how to join here . If there is anything you want to ask just let us know at tadcasterharriers@gmail.com or via the Contact Form.

Maybe you used to be a member ? Or did you once run the Tadacaster 10 mile race ? We have a complete archive of all 20 years of results available to search and sort here. We are also (slowly) building an archive of previous Club Champions, Club Records and other results.

Lastly, if you have anything you would like to contribute to the site - news, reviews, etc. please let us know at tadcasterharriers@gmail.com or via the Contact Form.

Club Run offers participating clubs a free series of practical coaching sessions led by coaches linked to the England Athletics coach development programmes with experience in off track running.

The Club Run sessions aim to support clubs and their runners to achieve more through their love of running. We will be targeting coaching and training for 10 mile road races, over the winter with the idea that you should aim for a 10 miler of your choice in late winter/spring 2018.

#runandtalk for World Mental Health Day

Author: Mark Swinden   |  Oct 16, 2017

Some 22 runners took part in the first Tadcaster Harriers runandtalk runs on Wednesday 11 October, in support of World Mental Health Day.

England Athletics, are encouraging people to #runandtalk to improve their mental wellbeing through running and break down the stigma associated with mental health by getting people talking about it. They are also encouraging the appointment of Mental Health Ambassadors in running clubs.

The event was organised by the Harriers Mental Health Ambassadors Sophie Overfield and Amanda Apperley, with runs of 2 and 5 miles. The event was aimed at the Harriers and the wider community. It was mainly Harriers who attended but we were pleased to see some old friends from the beginners groups. Celia and Mark led the runs and we were able to have some goodies, a drink and a chat at Magnet's afterwards.

In their role as ambassadors Amanda and Sophie are planning more events for the future.

Race Report: Gydnia Parkrun

Author: Ian Ward   |  Sep 24, 2017

Latest in the 'Harriers on Tour' series.

For Park Run no.100 Sue treated me to a trip to Poland and Gdynia Park Run. Flat & fast seaside run up and down the promenade, quite muggy but otherwise nice conditions.

Official results not out yet so about 21.26 for me and 26.25 ish for Sue (carrying a niggle so took it steady).

Lovely people here, very welcoming and they did seem to know a bit more English than we did Polish! Photo of the finish avenue below.

National Triathlon (Half Ironman)

Author: Stephen King   |  Sep 13, 2017

Strictly speaking this isn't Harriers News, however it's well worth a mention. In their "other" jobs as triathletes Joanne Derry and Glen Johnson competed in the Vitruvian Triathlon at Rutland Water, Leicestershire on Sunday 10th September, which also doubled up as the British Triathlon Championships over the Half Ironman distance - that's 1900m swim, 85k bike and 21k run (or in old money 1.2 mile swim, 53 mile bike and 13.1 mile run).

They both came away with fantastic results. Jo claimed 3rd in her age category; Glen finished 9th - and remember this is the National Championships. 

The superstars are pictured below - Jo getting them in at the bar while she waits for Glen to finish laughing
