We have recently changed our name to ‘Rothwell Harriers & A.C’ to capture the various disciplines our athletes engage in at training,  

This year has been a strange one and we hope that we have seen the end of interruptions.  We have raced and competed in new competitions and pushed our limits yet again.

We will be saying goodbye to some great friends from the juniors with long time coach Lynne Metcalfe taking a well deserved break and some of our original juniors moving into the Seniors and off to University.  A happy good bye to Harvey, Daniel, Josh and Max.  See you round the circuit team.

The track and field season is nearing a close and we had some great performances and club records this year.  Just the last events and then we are into the Road and Cross Country season.

Well done to all the athletes who have represented us on the track this year.

Our Mascot a wild boar to represent the Club at all Events  called ‘KEVIN’  name chosen by all under 11 athletes has enjoyed going on his trips again to events.

The cross country season awaits.


NEW for Rothwell Harriers Juniors in 2017 and now in the rdd year of participation is an independent series of races and junior parkruns in our local area that can be entered by all our junior athletes here:  There will be trophies for winners in all school year groups.  Parents should enter their junior athlete asap and all races in the series that have already been held will be added to their score i.e. backdated soon.
