Halifax Harriers Athletic Club was formed in 1884. We are affiliated to England Athletics for Track and Field, Cross Country, Road and Fell running. We are dedicated to encouraging participation in all these disciplines for all ages and abilities and have a dedicated program for disabled athletes. Our home base is the Spring Hall Athletics Track on Huddersfield Road, about 1 mile out from Halifax Town centre.
