Training Schedule


Club Events – January 2021 

Happy New Year!  

Your Heaton Harriers Club Nights will still be on Tuesdays and Thursdays!!!  

Just differently.  Read On. 

The Government’s decision to move the North East to Tier 4 level status means that we are unable to hold HH Club events in the normal way.  That will not stop you from running – or from us providing a ‘location free’ Training/Events Schedule either!  

Join the Heaton Harriers VIRTUAL Schedule to promote a feeling of being part of the ‘virtual club’/incentive to keep training.  Across January there are Hill and Speed sessions, 5km TT and even a XC run!  Actively participate and let us know you are doing so.  

While you will maintain a basic running fitness you may miss (well maybe not ‘miss’ exactly) the Hill and Speed elements that the Club sessions provide.  Therefore, we will continue to offer Tuesday and Thursday Club Nights.  The difference being that you are free to choose your timing and location – and whether you run them alone or one other person from outside your own household.  

We encourage you to participate on a Tuesday and Thursday just as you were doing when we met as a group.  However, as we cannot gather as a group, we ask you to register your ‘attendance’ via completing the attached link.  If you have done the session, simply tell us.  

How to do this? 

Please just click on this link, enter your name and answer whether or not you have run the Tuesday/Thursday session/with whom if you have.

This will then register your activity – you can use the link more than once so you can do this after each session.  Any problems with the form please just let your secretary know. 

The serious bit.  Please adhere to the most recent government instruction and when you are out running remember you are still representing our fantastic club – thanks.  we will continue to monitor the UKA and government guidance and will pass this information on if circumstances change again.  

Let’s keep the running and Club Spirit going through the ‘dark months’.   We’ll then be racing along together again in the Spring!!!

  • The weekly 5km TT organised by Bill Brown continues.  Submit your time to Bill by Saturday evening each week  
  • The time trial is back for the 5k XC! – The trial will take place over 2 weeks again, from Sunday 3rd January until noon on Sunday 17th January.  It will be the same route on the Rising Sun Hill and will be on the same basis as the previous one in November: Thanks Bill and Sam for putting this on.  

Thank you for your continued participation and co-operation.  Please do not hesitate to step forward with your ideas too.  


Keep Safe & Keep Running
