Welcome to Littledown Harriers it's our 25th anniversary year in 2015

Littledown Harriers is a social running club, established in 1990 at the then newly opened Littledown Sports Centre off Castle Lane in Bournemouth. The club started with a small group of enthusiastic runners and now has over 220 members (as of October 2015). We have a mix of competitive runners and runners who join us to get fit and keep fit. We are proud of our reputation as an inclusive local club: We have among us marathon runners, fun runners and first timers - infact runners of all ages and abilities*. The club and its members also support a local, chosen charity each year.

* The minimum age to run with the Harriers at any club session - including the Beginners Group or Sunday runs or to become a member is 16 years old.

 Competition

The main focus of the road running programme is to compete in the Dorset Road Race League .
The annual programme consists of 12 races over distances from 5 to 20 miles. In addition to the Dorset Road Running League, small groups of members travel outside the area to compete in events of their choice; trips are often abroad.
The Club also organises its own internal competition Club Championship  Rules  with a variety of distances and terrains through the year which are open to all members. Members are required to wear Club vests at all events.

 Membership

If you are interested in joining the club we suggest you join us for a run on our training evenings to get to know us better before taking up membership. No additional payments are required on the night. At present we have over 168 members*. In these difficult economic times a healthy, growing club is something we can all be proud of. With yearly membership costing a mere £30 (£20 membership + £10 EA affiliation). Club vests additional £16 - that’s cheaper than a month’s gym membership. It makes good sense and sound economics to keep fit and active with the Harriers. New members also keep us vibrant, vigilant and on our toes! The club fully endorses England Athletics’ mission statement ‘embracing athletes of all abilities and from all communities’. We aim to reflect the local community within our membership, so if you enjoy running and want to be part of a forward looking local club come along on any club night. All potential members are encouraged to come along, free of charge for up to 6 sessions before deciding whether you wish to join us or not. Minimum age 16.
