Hermitage Harriers Running Club

Based in Coalville, Hermitage Harriers look to offer running opportunities, across a variety of terrain, for established, part-time and new runners in the community surrounding North West Leicestershire.

Hermitage Harriers will cater for runners of all abilities and ensure we fulfil the needs of both serious/competitive runners and fun/social runners.

Hermitage Harriers look to host a local race, on an at least annual basis, within North West Leicestershire to raise the running/sports and fitness/wellbeing profile in our local community.

Hermitage Harriers offer a vibrant social scene for our members, friends & families - incorporating a wide range of activities and events throughout the year.


Club membership

Our club has grown organically, attracting members of all abilities - we now stand at over 100 strong. Our friendly yet competitive running scene promotes the sport and wider social activities.



We encourage personal development and have a number of members who have progressed to qualified coaches, thereby building for the future of Hermitage Harriers and establishing a foundation of experienced and qualified coaches/leaders.



Hermitage Harriers will look to field teams and compete in local, county, regional & national leagues/events. Hermitage Harriers R.C. should look to become recognised as one of the top running clubs in Leicestershire in terms of both individual/team performances and entry levels within race fields.
