Simply we try to get involved in every aspect of running and Athletics and welcome all ages and abilities. If you just want to jog to keep fit – fine, if you want to try your hand at throwing or jumping in track & field athletics – fine, if you’ve got delusions of grandeur (who hasn’t?) and want to compete in the higher echelons of the sport – fine. Is that all possible within a single club you ask? There’s only one way to find out and that’s to try it and see. Here we demonstrate the depth and variety of our activities by listing our achievements both individually and in team competition – National and International titles and our own Bingley Harrier Club Records speak for themselves.
The club’s oldest surviving record is held by one Helmut Eberlein who, in 1972, hurled the discus some 50.38 metres. Although several of our number have come close we are still waiting for our first four-minute mile.
