Why join a club


  1. Safety in numbers, it’s dark during winter time
  2. Safer on the roads, cars can see a larger group of runners
  3. Receive great advice from like minded people on kit, races, health and more
  4. Social, you can run or chat, it’s your choice
  5. Discounted entry into major races, better chances of entry into some


Why not come along to a few training sessions before you consider joining long term. Meet with members, run with us on an easy session, sweat with us on a tough hills session, sprint with us on a flat fast route. Hang around for a coffee afterwards. Bring a friend.


Saltwell Harrier membership covers ALL levels of running from casual joggers, fun runners, charity runners, park runners, 10k , half and full marathons and let’s not forget fell running. You name it we probably have members who do your kind of running.
