Harriers Photo 1

The Harriers Youth Team is a year-round training and racing group based in Victoria, focusing on both track and field and cross country running.

The Team has about 25 members ranging from grade 8 to third-year university. This includes youth who are just starting to run to those who are competing at the national and international level. We compete here on the Island, but increasingly we have to look to races on the Mainland, other provinces or the US to get competitive races.

Prior Lake Spring/Summer Trail Runs

Starting on May 6, our run venue is Prior Lake (Map) for the warmer months as the parking meters go in at the main parking lot of Thetis Lake Park on May 1.  The hotter weather draws more park visitors and is the busier period for runners, hikers, swimmers and dog walkers.. Harriers' runs take place from Prior Lake every Saturday morning at 8:00 am for the next 5 months before we move back to Thetis Lake on October 7, 2017.

 

TNW is now back at Beaver Lake for August & September, meeting by the lower (gravel) parking lot, for workouts mainly on shaded easy trails.  Thinking of another picnic mid-stay.

The group was started by Maurice Tarrant and initially attracted only about half a dozen runners, mostly retired friends of Maurice. Over the past few years the group has blossomed and now has a consistent core group of about 30 runners and walkers. A small number of TMGers meet at the Oak Bay track 9 am on Mondays for a speed session. Everyone welcome.
