Due the the recent announcements from the government, FRA and England Athletics, Todmorden Harriers-organised Packruns and Monday Beginners Group will be restarting w/c 27th July. However, participants must comply to new rules for these activities. Please check the Tod Harriers forum, or our Facebook page for full details before attending. We look forward to seeing you for a run!
As with so many aspects of life during this pandemic this is not a return to “normal”. All runners have to share the responsibility for making our events a “Covid secure environment”. Despite our club’s instinctive repulsion for rules, we cannot return to group running without making some changes and imposing some formalities. The club has aimed to achieve the lightest possible touch with the new “rules” and we will always try to reduce the administrative burden whenever we can.
We have completed a Covid 19 Risk Assessment; please read this document.
The run leader will take the names of all who attend each run – please make yourself known to them at the start
Run group leaders (fast/medium/slow etc..) will carry FA kits
There will be staggered start times
Pack Runs – every Wednesday evening
Every month we visit a different venue on Wednesday evenings and try to organise four different groups: beginners, slow, medium and fast. We also try not to lose anyone. All runners are welcome. The runs are off-road in daylight hours and on-road (or choice of headtorch off-road) in the winter months.

October 2020 Pack Run Venue (18:55-19:05pm staggered start)
Todmorden Sports Centre
October pack runs will be from the lower car park at Tod Sports Centre: Ewood Lane, Todmorden OL14 7DF.
As per tradition we will be returning to the road so wear your hi-viz gear and headtorches.
Fast group launch at 6:55 pm, Medium at 7:00pm and Slow at 7:05pm and there will usually be an off-road bat-run group too.
Please remember that we need to have had a completed participation form (if you haven’t submitted one already) and that we will need to take a register of all runners before we set off, so please make yourself known to the person taking the register.
Please also remember to follow the guidance in the risk assessment on the website and to undertake a health self-assessment before attending any Club activity.
“…it can feel a bit daunting on your own as there are so many people with often different faces every week, but everyone is so welcoming this wasn’t a problem.”
