The Overton Harriers organise two sell out races each year, one is the challenging off road 16km Combe Gibbet to Overton race in April and the other is the Overton 5 mile race in early September. It’s all hands on deck for our small club to organise these successful races. If you don’t fancy running, then you can always come down to the ORC at Bridge Street where both races finish to cheer everyone on. We’re always on the lookout for more marshals and people to help us too, so please do get in touch.
If racing isn’t your cup of tea, then we train several times a week with various speed groups and also host Couch to 5km courses.
If running isn’t your cup of tea either then we’d love to hear from anyone who can throw or jump! We take part in various track and field events over the summer months and have no minimum standard required. First timers are always welcome, our qualified coaches will be there to help.
Our junior section is aimed at 8-14 year olds, introducing them to all aspects of athletics and we encourage them to take part in local competitions too.
