We are Barnsley Harriers we enjoy running on roads, trails and fells over a wide variety of distances. We simply enjoy running - anywhere!
With over 170 members - the biggest senior membership club in Barnsley - and established some twenty four years ago, we have a broad mix of male and female, young and less young... and a full range of abilities.
Some of our members are founder members, but we have new runners of all standards joining us all the time.
We like to think we are friendly and sociable, welcoming new people not just to running but to our social side too.
We try to generate a relaxed yet supportive running environment where everyone can train at their own chosen level. Nevertheless we are competitive, taking part in events locally, nationally and internationally, ranging from 5 kilometre road races, through fell and trail running and up to and including marathons and ultra events.
We wear our orange and black vests with great pride!
Where and when do we meet?
Every Monday and Wednesday at 7pm at Shaw Lane Sports Club, Shaw Lane, off Racecommon Road, Barnsley, S70 6HZ.
Our meeting place is now overlooking the Rugby field at the rear of main building. Watch out for other runners arriving if you're new.
What training do we do?
Usually split down into 3 or 4 groups running for an hour or so, from 4 to 8 miles. No one gets left behind.
Wednesdays in winter are specific training sessions for speed work and hill work, a structured programme which we all do as one group.
There are many other organised BaHa groups on most other nights including track sessions and longer distance training. We also have a rolling programme of new beginner groups.
There is lots of good advice and help available for all standards.
