Welcome to Glaxo Hoad Hill Harriers
We are a small running club based in Ulverston on the north side of Morecambe Bay and just south of the Lake District National Park. No matter what reason you have for joining this club; be it social or competitive, 5k to marathon you will always find a warm and friendly welcome. We meet on Monday and Thursday evenings starting the sessions at 7 p.m. and finishing between 8 - 8.30 p.m.
Both ladies and men enjoy the safety and companionship that running with a group offers. The club welcomes junior members between the ages of 8 and 17, who train on Monday and Wednesday nights. The Club organises several races, socials and trips to other club races.

Periodic time trials to measure your running fitness are arranged. Programmes are designed to coincide with key Club events but can be adapted to suit your own requirements. Alternatively just go out for a steady run.
- Group Running
Runners are grouped by similar ability for group runs. A leader will choose a suitable route for the conditions. Group running in safety not only allows you to run more often especially in winter but also helps to motivate runners to get out.
