Welcome to Nuneaton Harriers online  www.nuneatonharriers.org.uk

Come and join a local and welcoming athletics club

Nuneaton Harriers Athletic Club is based at the Pingles Stadium in Nuneaton where we have an 8-lane 400m floodlit all-weather 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 that has its own committee and organises many special events.

 

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 athletes.

 

New members are always welcome. Contact us or simply turn up at The Pingles clubhouse on one of the club training nights. The young athletes (under 13 years old) meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm whilst the junior and senior members meet at 7:30pm.

 

If you are over 16, new to running and would like to join the beginners group please try the Saturday morning session at 10am.
