New to running or want to get back in to it ? come and join one of our Couch to 5k groups, Click here for more details.


If you are looking for a 5k, we would recommend going to a local Parkrun. They are completely free and on every* Saturday morning at 9am. You will normally see another Harrier at one of the 5 listed below. (*check the event site for any cancellations)

5 – 10k

We also run a 5k+ group for that next step towards a 10k or join us for one of the MABAC or SCCL races which are normally 5miles/8k.


There are plenty of options for a 10k. See a few of them listed below.

10k – Half Marathon

There are not many races around that fill the gap between 10-21k (half marathon) One race in particular which often has the best attendance from Harriers is the Great South Run. In 2019 we had over 40 member’s running and if you stick around afterwards we go for food and drinks.

Half Marathon

Lots of scenic half marathons to choose from, Coastal, City, Trail and a few along the River Thames.

Half Marathon – Marathon

Its hard to find a distance between Half and Full Marathon. The Cranleigh 15/21 give’s you the option to enter the 21 mile race and then chose to finish at 15 miles or carry on for another 6 mile loop.


Below are some of the best marathons in the UK and races that are very popular with marathon runners of the club. A few city options, a coastal/city race and a local trail event.
