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!

When did running begin for you? I ran cross-country at school, loved it and was fairly good. Unfortunately when I turned 14 and there were just three of us left doing running, and one of them had put it down on the form as an accident, so the school stopped offering it as an option […]

Surrey Half Marathon – Nikki Legg

The Surrey Half The Surrey Half seemed like the perfect half marathon to do for my first 13 mile run. I was told it was flat, well organised and had a good atmosphere. Even better, it was local. We arrived on Sunday morning to a hubbub of a race village, with long queues for the […]

When did running begin for you? Apart from a brief stint of sprinting at school, I didn’t ‘take up’ running until I’d bought my first flat when I was 21. Living alone miles away from civilisation and friends brought some challenges in terms of keeping myself occupied. So, I signed up for the Great South […]

On the Spot – Holly Yorston

When did running begin for you? I started running last February (2018) whilst in New Zealand on my sabbatical, purely because I couldn’t keep up a gym routine whilst travelling. I didn’t run at school (in fact I actively avoided it) and when I went on to study dance, it was discouraged for fear of […]
