The Hamworthy Harriers were established in 1987 and the Harriers philosophy has always been to balance the sport of running with an active social side and a sense of fun.
We are a running club affiliated to Dorset AAA’s and England Athletics, which allows for reduced entry fee to races/events for affiliated members
Monday: 6:30 pm from the Hamworthy Club, Magna Road. Usually between 4 - 8 miles
These runs take place off-road during the months of March to October. After working up a thirst on the run members usually retire to the comfort of the Hamworthy Club for a bite to eat, a few refreshments and some lively conversation.
