Our Harrier club supports social, casual, and competitive runners and walkers aged 6 to 96. 


What membership options are there?

For each age group, we have two membership options: social and competitive.

Membership for most categories covers between 1 April 2023 to 31 March. The exceptions are Social 15 to 19 years, Social 20+, and competitive 20+ memberships which are now ‘rolling’. They last for 12 months from the purchase date.

As such, membership covers both the winter harrier and summer track and field seasons.

What are the membership fees?

What are the main differences between social and competitive memberships?

• Club and destination runs
• Coaching and training groups
• Club events and workshops
• Limited inter-club races:
o Shunters and Grunters
o Lovelock Relays
o TK Cowan Race
o Colin Holmes/ Alice Baker Memorial 5km
• Community access
• Partner discounts
Everything offered through the social membership as well as:
• Ability to enter all interclub events and races for cross country and athletics.
• Selection eligibility for team-based competitions.
• Athlete support including grants  

As a rule of thumb, if you want to compete or race regularly (in harriers and/or track and field), the ‘competitive’ option is probably good for you. Otherwise, the ‘social’ membership will serve you well.
