Tadcaster Harriers Running Club

Welcome to Tadcaster Harriers ....


Welcome to the Tadcaster Harriers. We are a thriving running club meeting once a week for organised training sessions and competing in Road, Cross Country, Trail, Fell and Ultra races.

If you are already a member, then use the links on the menu above to find out about planned Training sessions, upcoming Races, Results and Social events. There is also a link to the Club Shop and a News archive.

If you are thinking of joining, then what are you waiting for ? We meet for training on Tuesday nights at Tadcaster Leisure Centre and we are always keen to attract new members. There is no need to be a particularly fast runner and there is no obligation to turn up regularly. A lot of our members have family and work commitments and just come down to the club when they can. Find out how to join here. If there is anything you want to ask just let us know at tadcasterharriers@gmail.com or via the Contact Form.

Maybe you used to be a member ? Or did you once run the Tadacaster 10 mile race ? We have a complete archive of all 20 years of results available to search and sort here. We are also (slowly) building an archive of previous Club Champions, Club Records and other results.

Lastly, if you have anything you would like to contribute to the site - news, reviews, etc. please let us know at tadcasterharriers@gmail.com or via the Contact Form.

YRRL 2016 Winners

Club News  |  Jul 10, 2016

Congratulations to everyone who took part on the YRRL series whether you ran one race or the whole series. If you haven't already seen the overall results, I'm delighted to say a massive well done to:

  • Glen Johnson - 2nd overall in the MV50 category
  • Mark Swinden - 3rd overall in the M60 category
  • Debbie Dennison - 2nd overall in the FV45 category
  • Bod Duxbury - 5th overall on Handicap (basically the most improved runners)

Plus a special mention for John Cooke, Carol Walmsley and Celia McRoyall who all recorded top 5 overall finished in their age categories.

Make no mistake, this is a fantastic achievment. This is a very competetive league and to finish the series with a medal/trophy has never been easy - more so now that the league has expanded so much.

War Diary raises funds for Martin House

Other News  |  Jun 17, 2016

We have published a book based on our grandfather's brother's diary from the First World War. Edward died on the Somme at the age of 19 and publication has been timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the battle of the Somme which started on 1July 1916.

The book is £8 a copy and is available in local newsagents and from Mark Swinden at swindenmark@sky.com. All money collected will go to Martin House Children's Hospice.

The book has had a great review in the York Press and features in a major article about a visit by Tadcaster Grammar School pupils to the battlefields, in the Wetherby News this week.


Any support you can give to this will be much appreciated, regards Mark and Jez Swinden.
