About Us

 Kettering Town Harriers

Kettering Town Harriers was established in 1894 and rapidly became one of the leading athletics clubs in the Midlands. We currently have over 250 members competing in such events as cross country, road running and track and field.

We offer training throughout the year from qualified coaching staff and meet between 6pm & 9pm on Tuesdays & 6pm and 9pm on Thursdays. We also compete as a club in many local and national events.

Our members range from novice joggers to national athletes with a wide range of ages, currently from 9 to 70. All members train in their respective groups on club nights either on our purpose built synthetic track or around the local area.

We are committed to equality of opportunity in sport for all, irrespective of gender, race, disability or age. Safety and personal achievement are our priorities, as members strive to reach personal goals in sport and fulfil their potential.

Our aim is to promote athletics as an inclusive activity in the local community whilst maintaining a national presence in the sport.  We achieve this by having speciallised training groups headed by trained coaches.  Information on our youngests 2 squads can be found further below.

 

Attention All Future Athletics Coaches – We need your Help!

Contact [email protected] to express your interest.


If anyone is interested in becoming an athletics coach or an assistant coach in any athletic event please let us know, it’s a great way to develop yourself and to put something back into the community and it can enrich your life. Most athletics coaches start off as parents of athletes who attend the club, you do not need to have any running or athletics experience just a willingness to learn. The Club will support your through the process and cover all the costs once you become an full active coach or assistant coach.

Over 10 years ago it’s just how I started and now it’s a hugely rewarding part of my life, and I get to share in every one of my athlete’s achievements, be it simply a new personal best, winning a County or Regional medal, or simply having fun participating in sport.
