Jonny Johnson in Winter XC Action!

Harrogate Harriers has a strong tradition in Cross-Country and in recent years we have had teams represent the club at both regional and national levels.  Cross-Country running is great fun and a very good way of improving upon your all-round running fitness, so if you are at all interested in competing for the club (particularly ladies – we need more please!)  just get in touch with our club XC representative Emma Robinson via email on

You don’t need to be super fast or an off-road demon to take part, you’ll find a very wide range of runners and abilities at all Cross-Country events.

For the 2016-17 season we will again be competing in the West Yorkshire League and Peco League.  Additionally, we intend to enter teams in the regional and national championships – details below.  Please bear in mind that you will need to be UKA affiliated in order to run for the club.
