If you have doubts about joining the club, why not come along to our club evening. Our club run is on Tuesday evening. In line with Covid-19 Government Guidance and UK athletics guidance the club organises a series of socially distant runs in small groups. Each group runs at a different pace, accommodating runners of all abilities. We meet at the Bay Centre from 6pm, with each group setting off at different times. Please keep an eye on our Harriers Facebook page as club runs are published weekly and some groups set off from alternative locations to minimise social gatherings at the Bay Centre. Our Thursday evening Fitness class, normally held at Highbridge Community Hall is postponed until its Covid safe to do so. Upon the resumption of our fitness class, you will be most welcome to join as the sessions are designed for members at all levels of fitness.
