Nuneaton Harriers Athletic Club is based at the Pingles Stadium in Nuneaton where we have an 8-lane 400m floodlit all-weather running track and clubhouse.
We welcome athletes of all standards, from fun runners through to international level competitors and have active athletes from age 7 to over 70. There is a large and vibrant young athletes section.
We provide training and qualified coaching with opportunities to compete in local, regional and national level competitions. We compete in track and field athletics, road running, race walking and cross country races. There are teams dedicated to young athletes, junior, senior and masters (age over 35 years) athletes.
New members are always welcome. Contact us or come to The Pingles clubhouse (Pingles Stadium, Avenue Road, Nuneaton.
