The Harrier Section operates during the winter months from the end of March through to October with cross country running, road running, relays, mountain running, and walking.
It is an ideal time to become involved with our sport with like minded people, and we offer options for recreational fitness activity, or testing your fitness levels in club or interclub competition.
We operate from our Clubrooms at 1.30pm every Saturday throughout the winter season.
As a new or prospective member, you are most welcome to experience the activities without any obligation. These will consist of “Group Runs / Walks”, where groups are formed with similar abilities or fitness levels.
Distances will vary and will be lead by a Pack Leader to ensure nobody gets left behind. It is a good way to meet members and find your current level of fitness with others. Members are encouraged to take part in low key club races, as an opportunity to test themselves and maybe progress at a later stage to Inter-club racing.
The annual fee structure varies depending upon your activity requirements, from a nominal fee for Recreational Members, to a fee inclusive of membership of Athletics New Zealand for Active Members who wish to participate in Inter-club, cross country, road and other affiliated races. You will not need to make this decision until you have experienced several weeks with us and decided on your own ambitions.
Current fees and how to join can be viewed on this website.
When you arrive at the clubrooms just ask for Paul Hewitson (Harrier Manager), or the female or male Harrier Captains Melissa Black and Nathan Tse, who will make you welcome and explain what the club does.
