  • Hi,
    My sister in law and I are interested in joining and would like some more information about the about the four groups on offer. Thanks

    • Hi Amanda,

      We’re operating slightly differently than listed due to the current Covid-19 situation. Could I ask, please, if you could please contact us via wallsendharriers@gmail.com with your rough 5km time or current running capability and we’ll be able to fit you with the right group.
      Hope to see you at a session soon 🙂
