Club Support Programme
A Note From Kate
"Our Club Support Programme comes from why Harrier started in the first place. To make it easier for people to love trail running. We’d love to work with clubs, groups or organisations who:
- Are passionate about trail, fell and / or ultra running
- Cater for a range of abilities
- Encourage challenge in a friendly way
- Prioritise and promote safety on the trails
- Have a supportive atmosphere for all members
- Do fun and interesting things to inspire and motivate
- Are professional in how they manage their group
If you are looking for help to support and grow your trail group we would be delighted to hear from you!"

How You Can Support Us
We are definitely not a ‘salesy’ brand but some promotion would be much appreciated where appropriate. We would request in return:
- Use our gifted kit on group runs
- Minimum two communications per month mentioning Harrier e.g. a product suggestion, blog article, competition, challenge
- Link to us for kit recommendations
If the club/group does not keep to their side of the agreement then support will cease immediately. This is to ensure commitment to the programme and not to just get ‘free stuff’. Only apply if you are truly committed to working with us.
Please do not make an application for the programme if you have not agreed as a club/group you are able to accept these terms.
Groups On The Programme
We are excited to announce the first groups that have joined the programme. OAC and NUTS are trail running groups who have shaped the Club Support Programme through feedback and ideas to get things off the ground. We are very excited to be partnering with both of them!
Outdoor Adventure Club
The Outdoor Adventure Club based around London and the South East is a registered Community Interest Company (CIC) which aims to serve its members by offering a wide range of outdoor activities.
"We believe that outdoor activity is of huge benefit to our community and society in general. It is our aim to promote community well-being and social cohesion while encouraging healthy lifestyles and environmental awareness. We promote and help provide access to a wide range of outdoor activities for our members."
Norfolk Ultra Training Support
"We started around 3 years ago to bring together the local ultra distance community and to support new and aspiring ultra runners as well as seasoned athletes. It's a great group of people and everyone helps each other.
It's a fast growing group and covers Norfolk and the surrounding counties of Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire. We are not a traditional type of club and don't have run leaders, but we are a friendly group where anyone can ask questions and get helpful support. We also encouraged newbies to take on their first ultra and have done virtual challenges." Mandy Foyster, NUTS founder
