Track & Field (Juniors & Seniors)

We offer regular coached training sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

For juniors – please email juniorwaitinglist@macclesfield-harriers.co.uk with your child’s name and date of birth before coming to training. We often operate a waiting list, particularly for the younger age groups (school years 4-7).

Road Running

If you’re a senior athlete interested in road running, please feel free to come along to meet us and try a run.

We cater for runners of all abilities with a range of groups that meet to run throughout the week.  All the groups are very friendly and the leader will ensure that nobody is left behind.  All groups run from various easily accessible locations on a variety of Roads and Trails.

Email tryarun@macclesfield-harriers.co.uk and we will get back to you to help you find a group to suit your needs.  Or choose a group for yourself and email the appropriate leader.

In addition, Senior Interval training takes place on Tuesdays at the Macclesfield Athletics Track.
