All about Tod Harriers...

Todmorden Harriers AC was formed in the 1970s when a group of local runners got together to form a club to meet the needs of athletes in the Upper Calder Valley and its surrounding areas. From these simple beginnings, the club has continued to grow and currently has an active membership of around 130.

In recent years the club has gone from strength to strength, achieving success in national fell running championships, both in individual and team categories. Our very own Lauren Jeska was the 2012 English (3rd consecutive) and 2012 British Fell Running Champion and we were the 2011 English Ladies Fell Running Team Champions. The club has also developed a reputation as a force in the long distance world, with numerous successful Bob Graham Rounds and prize winning mountain marathon performances.

Away from the fells, the club is also active in other areas of athletics, with an active road running scene for the lovers of tarmac. There is also a growing band of members who have achieved recognition in the world of Iron Man Triathlon. We also have a thriving cycling section with regular club rides.

As well as running, we also organise races. Each year the club stages four quality fell races and one road race. We are proud of these events, and it’s both enjoyable and satisfying for our members to be able to put something back into the sport.

In addition to the seniors, we have a thriving junior section.

Despite our success we remain a friendly and social club, with our roots firmly in the community. To find out more about us please have a browse around the website.
