Middleton Harriers Athletic Club

Middleton Harriers is a small, friendly running club based at Hopwood Hall in Middleton, Manchester.  Road running involves a large number of the club's membership. It also has a wide range of members, both in terms of age and ability.  All age groups and abilities are welcome at the club.  Runners usually form into groups of varying ability so don't be put off.  Running is for everyone!  We also have a varied social calendar which involves the occasional tipple.

Training Nights

Monday Night Winter Training Sessions: - The Club will once again be using the facilities of Springhill Track for winter 2008/9.  The track has been booked from Monday 22nd September and weekly until Monday 6th April 2009.  Times from 7.00 pm until 8.45 pm.  Cost is 2.00 per person (to be paid for on the night).  This is an excellent facility with changing and showers available at no extra cost.

There is the added benefit of being able to do road running, hill reps etc on virtually traffic free roads and tarmac illuminated paths on the new Kingsway industrial estate.  Coaches will be present to cover track sessions which have proved popular over the last 2 years.  PLEASE SUPPORT THIS CLUB INITIATIVE and see you there.

We now also run from the Middleton Arena on a Monday night.
7.00 pm - the main ladies group meets at 6.45 pm to start running at 7.00 pm
7.15 pm - This group does speedwork etc.
These times will apply on Monday evenings until the 6th April when track training will cease.  We will run from HEATON PARK from the 20th April 2009.

Wednesday Night Training
There are 2 groups that set off at the following times:
6.45 pm for 7.00 pm - the main ladies group meets at 6.45 pm to start running at 7.00 pm
7.15 pm - The last group, which is also mixed, and is generally the faster group sets off.

Our NEW base from Wednesday 21st January 2009 will be the new Middleton Arena.  Showers will be 1.50 per session, though members who have taken advantage of the corporate gym membership will not have to pay, neither will people who are members of the RMBC passport to leisure scheme. Meet in the forum foyer.  Parking on a normal Wednesday is available at the side and rear of the building.  There is a bar (they do serve coffee) adjacent to the foyer and we hope that more members will use this facility after a run, since this will be our base and provides a facility for socialising and general discussion.

Junior Training Nights

Tuesday evening- Radcliffe School Track, Oldham.  6.30 - 7.30 pm
Thursday evening - Hopwood College, Middleton.  6.00 - 7.00 pm


Remember whether running individually or in a group on the roads, now that the dark nights are fast approaching, please ensure that you can be seen by other road users by wearing appropriate reflective or light coloured clothing.  Take particular care when crossing roads.  BE SAFE, BE SEEN, take care of yourselves.  Derek Bury (Events Secretary)
