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 the Southern Cross Country League during the winter months 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.

Training

Track_350x250

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, alternating between the Charterhouse track and the hills of Godalming. Sunday mornings are time for a longer trail run, usually leaving from Godalming town centre.

Please do feel free to come along to two or three runs before joining the club.

Juniors

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

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.

Couch to 5k

Never run before? Want to start running?

We aim to run two ‘Couch to 5k’ groups each year for complete beginners to running. The group starting in autumn 2019 is now fully subscribed, with our next group planned for spring 2020. We'll post more details here once 2020 registrations are open.

In the meantime Godalming leisure centre runs regular C25k groups and other groups are advertised on runtogether. Many of our members get started themselves via the C25k app. We hope to see you running soon!

X Country – Manor Farm Country Park 26th Jan

Well, at least the wet and muddy conditions came as no surprise. The course was slightly less muddy than last time believe it or not; but the puddles had ideas above their station and were pretending to be lakes! I think the rain stopped briefly during the race, at least it wasn’t as bad as […]

Reflections from an ultra runner

A round-up of 2013 from Stefan Klincewicz – a relative newcomer to ultra running who racked up an impressive tally of medals! How did 2013 go for you and  what have you got planned for 2014? On reflection, 2013 was a busy year of running which included 13 Marathons and 9 Ultras! The key highlights […]

X Country – Lord Wandsworth College 29th December

Muddy is the only word to describe this run….really, really muddy. Muddy and hilly and even more muddy! Just four ladies made it, but we came in 9th which was fantastic (I take no credit). The men fielded a bigger team and made 7th place with a stunning run from MacGregor Cox who made that last hill […]

X Country – Bourne Woods 8th December

A big welcome to Rosie, running her first x country for Waverley Harriers. She brought us sunshine and a relatively dry course, sandy and not too hilly (well, relatively speaking). There was a great turnout from Waverley Harriers, despite the conflicting attraction of the Hogs Back race and other local events so many thanks to […]
