Becoming a Member

Sunderland Harriers are a club that welcomes people of all ages of nine years old or older; in some cases much older; of all abilities and gender. We have a proud history of athletic excellence but we are not an elitist club. Whichever branch of athletics you wish to join you will train with a group of people of equal ability. Everyone is encouraged to find their own level but no one is left to fend for themselves.

Becoming a Member

As a member you can join us at the Sunderland Sports Complex athletics track on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings. At the same times the distance groups can set their feet on the pathways of Sunderland or favourite local cross country routes, led by experienced coaches. You will have the opportunity of competing in track and field, road, and cross country events throughout the year.

Younger members are coached in all aspects of athletics, but with equal emphasis on attitude, commitment, perseverance, and respect for others in a FUNdamental environment.

At this time we are all being encouraged to pursue a healthy life style. Join us at Sunderland Harriers, meet new people and make new friends while you improve your fitness for life.

Becoming A Qualified Coach

As long as there are athletes there is a need for qualified people to coach them.

Coaches at Sunderland Harriers are all dedicated volunteers, many having come through the competitive athletics ranks, some others finding a niche having accompanied their own children to the club.

All Coaches are trained and licenced by England Athletics at the various levels of expertise and responsibility. To strengthen our Coaching arm, Sunderland Harriers can assist you to obtain coaching qualifications in your chosen discipline to your ideal level and support you in your coaching experience.
