About Richmond and Zetland Harriers

Richmond & Zetland Harriers are a local athletics club based in Catterick near Richmond in North Yorkshire. The Club is affiliated to North Yorkshire County AA, North of England AA and UK Athletics and is actively involved in Track & Field, Cross Country, Road Running, Fell Running, Orienteering and Triathlon.

The Club caters for men and women, girls and boys from age 10 upwards. Our aims are to develop an individual’s athletic ability in an enjoyable atmosphere and to enable him or her to compete on equal terms with athletes from other clubs at local, county or national level.

Richmond & Zetland Harriers compete year-round in the North Yorkshire and South Durham League; cross-country in the winter and track and field in the summer. The girls and boys compete in the Northern Division 2 North East of the Young Athletes Track and Field League and the Seniors compete in the Division 3 East of the combined Northern (Men’s & Women’s) Track and Field League.

The Club vest, red with a white diagonal stripe, is always seen at the London Marathon and the Great North Run, in the Northern 6 and 12 stage road relays, at the sharp end of the Harrogate & District Summer Road Race League and at most local road races.

We presently have two qualified Senior Coaches plus several Level One and Level Two Coaches, but additional help is always welcome. Previous experience is not essential, an interest in athletics and young athletes are the most important qualities; keenness, patience and a sense of humour always help!
