Welcome to the website of Hamworthy Harriers.
The Hamworthy Harriers were established in 1987 and the Harriers philosophy has always been to balance the sport of running with an active social side and a sense of fun.
We are a running club affiliated to Dorset AAA’s and England Athletics, which allows for reduced entry fee to races/events for affiliated members
Why not come and join us for a run. We run on Mondays at 6:30 pm from the Hamworthy Club, Magna Road. Distance is usually between 4 - 8 miles. These runs take place off-road during the months of March to October and on road during the winter months.
After working up a thirst on the run members usually retire to the comfort of the Hamworthy Club for a bite to eat, a few refreshments and some lively conversation.
