Welcome to Waverley Harriers

We are a small and friendly running club based in the Godalming and Farncombe area of Surrey, just south of Guildford. The club has runners of all ages and abilities, from those looking to improve their fitness through to those that run marathons and ultras. We meet regularly for both informal runs and structured training sessions both on and off-road. We take part in cross country leagues and many of our members take part in local races all year round.

Come and join us!

If you are looking for a friendly local running club in the Godalming, Farncombe or Guildford area of Surrey, then look no further! We're always looking for new members to join. Feel free to join us for two or three runs before deciding whether the club is right for you.



We have several training sessions each week. Our main meeting is the Thursday evening run from Godalming (trail during the summer and on road during the darker winter months).

Tuesday evenings are for our performance training sessions usually track, hills or speed.

Sunday mornings are time for a longer trail run, usually leaving from Godalming town centre.



Waverley Harriers also has an active Junior athletics section for children (Waverley 365).

The Juniors train on a Tuesday evening. During the summer months we train for track and field at Charterhouse school. For the winter months we train indoors. We also compete in the Wessex track & field league and the Border cross-country league.

Why do you run? Because I can! This has not always been the case. When I was little, I had bony lumps growing on legs and arms causing issues with exercising. They called me the terminator at secondary school as I had metal pins sticking out of my arm and walked round on crutches (i.e. […]
