Welcome to Youlgrave Harriers. ROY to our friends.
We are a running* group based in the Peak District village of Youlgrave. Established in March 2021 as a hub for all our local and visiting runners.
We have no affiliation and no overheads. We are simply people that meet up to train and jog about. If you fancy joining us membership is free and there's no commitment. It simply adds a little structure which can allow us to run championships, member only runs and 1st entry into the various races and events we put on. Go to the JOIN US page for full details and the form.
If you're visiting the area you're very welcome to join us for a run, simply show up. If you have any questions drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org or a message Facebook page. You can see what we're up to on our CLUB RUNS page.
We do various events with lots of Guided Trail Runs and a couple of races which can viewed here .Add your email address to the events newsletter list if you want to be 1st to hear about what we have planned.

We meet on Alport Lane Playing fields , Youlgrave (the cricket and football pitches, Alport end of the village, car park is next to the field). We head to The George for post run recovery. Because they're session based this allows us to cater for all abilities ie work as hard as you want or have a walk / jog, but we'll all be within close proximity of each other
Guided Trail Runs. Saturday or Sundays usually starting at 10:00 every 4 weeks. We use these to go exploring around the Peak District. Full details including maps and route description can be found on our EVENTS page. We do have a loose limit on non members depending on the route so we do ask that you let us know you're coming via the form . This is to control numbers and enables us to send final details out/updates if needed.
All our runs are open invite (no membership, fees etc needed ) simply come along (though we are sneaking in a few additional member only things as we grow). Any questions please contact us youlgraveharriers@gmail .com or Facebook messages . If you want to be kept in the loop about what we have planned sign up to the newsletter or become a member via the links below.
The return edition The Panter will be May 2024 . Our route takes you from the village and on a tour of our favorite paths across the fields with far reaching views across our home. If you're wandering why our race is called 'The Panter', it'll become obvious very early on.
100% of all profits will be going to fundraising for various village amenities .
