Training at Millfield track every Tuesday evening of the year. Open to paid up Harrier members - £2 per session (£20 for term of 13 weeks or £60 for year - 48 weeks - when joining using annual membership form) - or to non-athletic Club members (£3 per session). Age range 14-70.

The session varies according to time of year but will inevitably be aimed at cross-country runners (autumn/winter) or middle-distance/distance track runners (spring/summer) with 5km/10km road runners catered for all year round. These will be quality sessions involving a hard work out.

 

Numbers attending on average will be 40 with smaller numbers on the 2nd Tuesday of every month as it is the night before the Street 5km road race  (see separate calendar entry).

Senior Coach: Jon James assisted by other Endurance coaches, particularly Simon Prior. Ian Eddy in charge of register in the announcer's hut.
