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.


Max Burgin wins in Gyor

Halifax Harriers Sarah Cumber had an excellent run at the Tadcaster 10 mile race. She was the first finisher for the club and fourth female finisher in the race in a time of 1:02:44.

The race starts from the race headquarters ‘The Barn’ in the centre of Tadcaster and comprises a small loop of 1.5 miles before the 600 runners headed out East towards Healaugh and Wighill. The finish line is alongside the River Wharfe at the end of a long 2 mile flat road back into Tadcaster with a downhill section of 500m into the finish.
