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.

Thetis Lake Park Fall/Winter Trail Runs

Starting on Saturday, October 6, our run venue is at Thetis Lake for the 7 cooler fall and winter months.  We meet in the large parking lot at the end of Six Mile Road.  On May 4, for the spring/summer runs, we return to the small parking lot at Prior Lake on Highland Road Park for the 5 warmer months.  We gather every Saturday throughout the year, meeting at 8:00 am for one hour group runs with a social coffee or breakfast following the run.

This is the classic Prairie Inn Harriers weekly social run with groups ranging from slow to moderate to fast. All runners, dogs and walkers are welcome.  You don't have to be a club member to join in and there is no fee to participate.  If you are unfamiliar with the park trails, Group Leaders are available for all paces.

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 Monday
