Welcome to Nuneaton Harriers online

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 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. CV11 4LX) at 6:30pm on one of the club training nights for an assessment and induction. The young athletes (generally under 16 years old) train on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm whilst older and more experienced members meet at 7:30pm. Note - all athletes under 16 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the induction session.


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