Maidstone Harriers Run and Tri are an active and friendly club of over 300 members, with a proud history, that welcomes runners and triathletes of all abilities. It does not matter if you are at the start of your journey seeking a couch to 5k course; or if you just want to improve and find new friends to run with; or you have a goal to run your first marathon or triathlon – we will help you achieve your ambitions.
Maidstone Harriers offer a huge range of opportunities, whether you are a new, or experienced runner or triathlete. We will welcome you, whether you are simply looking to join a club to run socially, or you want to improve and take part in competitions.
Maidstone harriers run every Wednesday from our shared clubhouse at Maidstone Hockey Club and many of our members will stay for a chat and a drink at our club bar afterwards. You do not need to be fast, there are runners of all abilities and we offer different routes each week.
Free 0-5k Courses
For those new to running we will support you in a free coached couch to 5k group that is repeated at regular intervals throughout the year. We will help you achieve your goals.
Our coaches offer free track training for club members of all abilities at Sutton Valence on Tuesday evenings – and these are a great way to work on your form, speed and stamina.
For budding triathletes the club offers swimming coaching once a week on Monday nights at Mote Park Leisure Centre and we are looking to extend this offer to spin classes in the future.
Maidstone Harriers regularly enjoy competing in a range of races (from Saturday parkruns, to ultra-marathons and Iron man competitions throughout the UK and sometimes abroad). The club regularly send runners to all the major UK marathons and there are very experienced members who will be happy to help on your running journey – whether you are aspiring to athletic excellence; or readying yourself to compete to be the: “last Harrier home”
Kent Cross Country & Fitness Leagues
As a Maidstone Harrier you can also run in the Kent Cross Country and Fitness League events which take place in the Autumn/Winter across various beautiful, but occasionally muddy, open spaces across Kent.
We offer a range of fun social events throughout the year ranging from quizzes, to curry nights; as well as friendly social runs across the Kent countryside on Sunday mornings.
Maidstone Half Marathon & Turkey Run
Maidstone Harriers also host the Maidstone Half Marathon and the legendary festive Turkey Run. These are great events for all involved, whether you want to run, or volunteer.
