Longwood Harriers Athletic Club
is a Running and Athletics (Track & Field) club that is 131 years old in 2019; it began as a running group from St Mark's Church in Longwood, Huddersfield in 1888, but we now train at Leeds Road sports complex. We welcome Athletes from all parts of the community from nine years old and upwards. (Note: we do not have specialist coaches needed for under 9s, so please do not bring younger children even with older siblings, as they will not be allowed to take part)

Our primary purpose is to compete as a team organised through the club. Individuals also compete in club colours in events they enter themselves. Once a member all Athletes are expected to take part in local, county, regional and national competitions as appropriate. We offer regular training and access to competitions; in return, as our membership form states, there is an expectation that all members will compete for the club during the year whenever they can. We now record participation so we can focus our coaching resources on those who compete for the club

Prospective new member introductory meetings: We have new members' meetings regularly (on a Thursday training night) to introduce new athletes and their parents to the club. This is so they are clear on what joining involves, so they can ask questions and we can encourage full participation. To join the club you have to attend one of these meetings. Please give your contact details at training and you will be contacted when the next one is arranged.

Parents/relatives
Why not ask about training as a coach or official? The club is becoming very popular and we really need further help at training if we are to avoid a membership waiting list!
