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 and Thursday 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.

Race Report: Robin Hood 100

Author: Stephen King   |  Sep 20, 2018

Huge congratulations to Dave Baxter who completed the Robin Hood 100 over the weekend of 15th/16th September. What a massive achievement to have joined such a select group of endurance runners. This was the culmination of months of training and preparation and to complete the race at all, never mind in under 24 hours is an unbelievable achievement. Here is Dave's race report (brief as ever):

I did the Robin Hood 100 at the weekend finishing in 22nd place (125 entrants with 32 DNF’s) in a time of 23hrs 33 minutes. It was a great event, really well managed and marshalled (if anyone fancies it…).

All went fairly well apart from vomiting at 70 and 82 miles I still managed to get done and under my 24 hour target. Lots to learn and take from the run and feeling quite chipper a few days down the line. Onwards and upwards!

Dave was also raising money for Multiple Sclerosis Society because his wife Sarah runs the York Branch physio class. You are still able to donate here:  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/daveb-robinhood100

Race Report: LDWA - The Elsecar Skelter

Author: Dave Baxter   |  Aug 5, 2018

I did another LDWA event last Saturday ‘The Elsecar Skelter’ a ‘trail Marathon’ (27miles) with 3000ft climbing and some very large nettles and briers. Perhaps due to the ‘non-elite’ field I came back in 1st place, 24 minutes ahead of 2nd place. Rewarded with a sew on badge and Pie n Peas. The LDWA events are well worth doing, really good value (this was £15 inc 5 well stocked checkpoints)

Beginners Group

Author: Mark Swinden   |  Jul 27, 2018

It was the final session for the Beginners Group last night and to mark the occasion there was a bit of a get together for a drink and a chat. There was also a bit of a surprise .... 

Take a look at this beautiful  quilted version of the Harriers logo which was made by Fay Harrison from the beginners' group and which she presented to us at the final session last night. This is going to look fantastic adorning the trophy table at the club dinner.

Fay has joined the Harriers and there are 15 runners from this years beginners' group who have joined or are in the process of joining, which is just brilliant.

Here is Faye at work .. so clever !

Race Report: LDWA Afoot in 2 Dales-The Yorkshire 50

Author: Stephen King   |  Jul 11, 2018

On one of the hottest weekends of the year most of us took things very easy - a few beers, BBQ, watch the football, etc. A few of the more energetic amongst us managed a parkrun - good effort in the heat. Some even more foolhardy souls ("I've entered so I'm doing it!") ran 10k races in York, Leeds and Castle Howard. Some even managed a hilly 7 mile race at Kilburn. And then there's Dave Baxter .....  

In his own words, here is what Dave got up to:

I ran the LDWA Afoot in 2 Dales-The Yorkshire 50 at the weekend. A very hot and scenic 50 miles through Wensleydale and Swaledale. Came in 2nd place in a time of 10 hours 56 minutes. About 10 litres of water drunk, 2 ice creams and a lot of stream dunkings! This is on the back of PB’s in the summer road league, a 5th in the Dukeries 40 and 8th at the Hardmoors White Horse "Marathon"... all is coming together nicely towards the Robin Hood 100 in September raising funds for the MS Society.

What a remarkable run !

As he says above, Dave is planning to run the Robin Hood 100 in September and is using the preparation and the event to raise funds for the MS Society, You can visit Dave's fundraising page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/daveb-robinhood100
