Join Us

Wigan Harriers Endurance group is the road running wing of Wigan and District Harriers & Athletic Club. We regularly compete in all kinds of running events including road, cross country, fell races, trail races and any distance from 5k to marathons and beyond. Not content with just running we have branched out into Triathlon and now boast a number of Triathletes who have competed Sprints all the way through to Ironman distance.

We cater for all abilities from beginner to expert, fast, slow and all levels in-between.  We have members from 15 years old to 70+.  We can help you get fit for your first 5K, provide a bit of company & security on your training runs or try to help you smash your marathon PB.  Whatever your experience and ability we will be able to help you improve.

Our sessions are taken by qualified coaches and they are free of charge. We do not expect you to join up for club membership until you have had plenty of to time to try us out, settle in and decide that it suits you! .

We fully understand that most people thinking of joining a running club are worried that they may not be quick enough and find the idea a bit intimidating. You can be sure that there is always someone to run with no matter your ability, and we like to think we go out of our way to make new members feel welcome!

Our main meetings are Tuesday & Thursday evenings, but if those times aren’t convenient then there are smaller groups meeting throughout the rest of the week.

Just turn up and introduce yourself and one of our coaches will have a chat and settle you in. Alternatively, e-mail for more info.

Check the Training Times page for more details of where and when we meet.

  1. I’m thinking of joining Wigan harriers and would like to see if it’s for me. I’m joining the army soon so I need to keep my fitness up. -Sam

    • Hi Mark our Endurance section caters for 15 and over. You would need to get in touch with the main section of Wigan Harriers. Apologies for the delayed response we don’t get notified if anyone comments on the website.
