Road Running


Contact: Ross Connor


Watford Harriers have always been one of the leading road running clubs in Hertfordshire and our flagship event, the Watford Half, takes place every February in Cassiobury Park. We compete across all disciplines on the road from 5k all the way to marathon, including relays. 


Our main training session takes place on a Tuesday night down at the track, for more info please visit our Seniors page. However we have a Wednesday Night Road Run that takes place every week commencing at 7pm from either Sun Postal Sports & Social Club or Watling Street Brewery. We have four usual routes that we alternate on a weekly basis in the summer, so please check the Facebook group or twitter page for updates on what route will take place that week. We also have shorter routes available for those not wishing to tackle the full distances. 

The Wednesday Night Road Run schedule can be found here:

Winter: Watling Street Brewery (We join a local running group, Watling Street Striders, at this brewery. No subs. Free drink at finish & sometimes some steak!)

Summer: Sun Postal Sports & Social (Please remember to bring £1 subs as changing/shower/storage facilities are provided and you are encouraged to stay for a drink afterwards.)

We enter many races throughout the year and the 2018 schedule can be found at the bottom of the page. 

County Races

The county races will also constitute the Club Championships for each discipline. However as we are hosting the Watford Half Marathon, the Vets Club Half Marathon Champs will take place at the Berko half instead. Likewise there is no County Marathon this year so the Club Marathon Champs will take place at the London Marathon. A list of current Club Champions can be found here.

Herts Parkrun Challenge

The Herts Parkrun Challenge is a new, friendly in club competition for Watford Harriers members over 15. We will visit all 15 of the county's parkruns throughout the course of the year. Points will be awarded in a handicap system, so that anyone has a chance of winning regardless of ability. Bonus points will also be awarded, so the more events you make the better your chances will be. For full points break down, please download the league table pdf at the bottom of the page.
