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.

Thetis Lake Winter/Spring Trail Runs

Starting on October 7, our run venue is at Thetis Lake for the cooler, wetter months through the fall, winter and early spring.  We meet at the main parking lot at the end of Six Mile Road every Saturday meeting at 8:00 am for a one hour run with coffee or breakfast following.  Harriers' runs take place from Thetis Lake for 7 months before moving to Prior Lake Saturday on May 5, 2018, for the 5 warmer spring and summer months.  A quick swim is optional after the run.

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.
