Hemel’s Local Running Club


We have now returned to full training from the clubhouse on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
For now, please do consider taking a lateral flow test before coming to the club, and please don’t run if you have any symptoms (& note it appears that the symptoms for Omicron are pretty much the same as a cold).
As always, your welfare is our primary concern. We will keep training and enjoying the benefits of running and being part of a club, but will do so as safely as possible.
Thanks for your understanding.

Serving Our Running Community Since 1991

Gade Valley Harriers is a Club organised by runners for runners. We like to think of it as a group of friends all sharing a common interest. Today we have a strong base of good quality runners and in recent times we have won several team events ranging from the Berkhamsted Half Marathon on the road to the South Downs Marathon Relay over testing cross country routes. We currently have 170 members and we welcome adult runners of all abilities.
