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 Spring/Summer Trail Runs

Starting on Saturday, May 5, our run venue is at Prior Lake for the 5 warmer spring and summer months.  A quick swim in Prior Lake is optional after the run.  We meet at the small parking area on Highland Road and return to the main parking lot of Thetis Lake Park for the cooler, wetter months through the fall, winter and early spring.  We gather every Saturday throughout the year, meeting at 8:00 am for a one hour run with coffee or breakfast following.

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.  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 Mondays for a speed session. Everyone welcome.
