Tadcaster Harriers encourage all of our members to participate in running events. It not only focuses your training, but it's a great way to socialise and see some wonderful parts of the area.
If you are new to running and competing, why not try our club races first ? The Club Handicap races are for club members only and typically have 20-30 runners over a variety of distances and terrains. And no matter for fast or slow you are, because the results are based on a handicap table, anyone has a chance to win.
Other low key events include parkrun. If you haven't come across parkruns yet, they are free weekly timed 5k runs, usually at 9am on a Saturday morning. In terms of participants, the local events vary from Wetherby which is run on grass and usually attracts around 50 runners right the way through to York which regularly get over 500 runners.

The York Summer Road League is a series of seven 10 kilometre road races staged on Tuesday evenings at fortnightly intervals from April to July each year. Again, this is a great chance to socialise with Tadcaster Harriers club members, but also with members of othre local clubs.
The Bramham Park Fun Runs event is is a focus for the club in October, although for not participating. Instead we would encourage all members to volunteer to help run this popular and worthwhile event - with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK. It is a great day to be involved in and we always need volunteers to help on the day.
The Endure 24 Hour event takes place late June / Early July and has now become a regular event for the Harriers. Running either solo, in pairs, or as part of a team of up to eight runners, you run as many laps of a five mile loop (around the gorgeous Bramham Park) as you can in the 24 hour period. What makes it special is the camaraderie of the club over this weekend. It is an event not to miss!
Of course there are any number of other events to take part in. Here are some good website resources for finding the race to suit you:
