Longwood Harriers Athletic Club is a Running and Athletics (Track & Field) club that was 125 years old in 2013. As Joe Percy said in his introduction to the book published on our centenary "Sixty years a member of Longwood Harriers A.C. and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every minute of it."
We are based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and train on an all weather track located at the Leeds Road playing fields. Why not come down on a training night to give it a try for free? You can come along to one or both sessions each week.
We offer you regular training and access to competitons; in return as a member you are expected to compete for the club as often as you can. Our purpose is to compete as a team and as individuals.
Keeping fit is a bonus but not our primary aim.

Important note: Longwood Harriers will be taking a summer break from training
The last training session before the break will be Thursday 17th July returning on Tuesday 5th August
Please make a note in your diaries - any training you undertake in this period will be at your own risk

We welcome Athletes from all parts of the community and all ages and abilities from nine years old and upwards. The Leeds Road venue continues to develop, and we are able to offer all-weather facilities for throwing, jumping and running events.
As an Athletics club, members are expected to take part in competitions representing the club or to help out with events. All coaches are British Athletics qualified and they and other helpers give their time unpaid. We rely on parents being involved to support our activities, whether this is at training, at an event or with any expertise they may have. We can offer British Athletics training to those who may wish to be coaches or athletics officials.

In the Summer, Track & Field and Road Running are the norm. In the Winter our focus is on Cross Country with Road Running continuing throughout the year. Our main training details are given on this page. Further details are given on our training summary page. Look here for Joining detail
