Longwood Harriers Athletic Club is a Running and Athletics (Track & Field) club that was 125 years old in 2013. We welcome Athletes from all parts of the community and all ages and abilities from nine years old and upwards, and train them to take part in local, county, regional and national competitions. 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."

Details of 2014-15 Club competitions and events - Cross country season

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

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, but remember the purpose of training is to prepare for competition

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 become coaches or athletics officials; you don't need experience!

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 details
