Welcome to Orion Harriers

We are a friendly, running club, suitable for all ages and all abilities, based in North Chingford, on the edge of Epping Forest.  We have a membership of over 300 runners, comprising of women and men aged from 18 – 80, plus a vibrant juniors section with 300 members. Whether your ambition is to run competitively or just jog to get fit and meet new friends, Orion Harriers is the club for you!



Club House Extension

As everyone is probably aware we are proposing to extend the clubhouse to provide larger and improved changing facilities and communal areas to cope with current  membership numbers and predicted growth.

For the first time this year I have had to put a qualifying time on the 5000m at FASTFriday, and despite increasing the numbers per race I have got sufficient interest from Sub 19min runners that I will not be able to open up the entries as I have done in previous years.

So I am wondering if it might be an idea to hold a second track night on a Friday evening in Mid-September, where we can put on a series of mile and 5000m races especially for Orion members. We could have all the usual FASTFriday features such as Street food, bar, cake stall, crowd on the track etc. and also open it up for runners from other local clubs.

Races would be graded so everyone would be running against others of a similar standard and there would be opportunities for both seniors and juniors and be an event for runners of absolutely all standards.

Can people let me know if this is the sort of event they might want to come along to and give it a go. If there is sufficient enthusiasm I'll get on to giving it some thought. If no-one fancies it I won't.

In the meantime put FASTFriday in you diary, great opportunity to come down to the track and watch some serious racing. The lead pack in the 10000m are already committed to going after Walthamstow's first ever sub 30. Details here FASTFriday
