RUN WITH SLH IN 2013
If you answered yes to one or more of these, then South London Harriers could be the Club for you to join. We cater for everyone, from the most casual jogger to national champions and we have them both! No-one is too good and no-one is not good enough.
We offer you regular organised training and competition, and we welcome you to come along and see if you like what we do, before you commit to joining.
Crystal Palace is our track and field base, with training all year, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and competition throughout Spring and Summer.
Our Headquarters in Coulsdon caters for cross-country and road running training, depending on the time of the year. Our qualified coaches organise interval sessions, or there is the option of a pack run. Organised sessions are Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings and are suitable for all abilities. From September onwards, there is a cross-country race nearly every weekend, many of which are local. Club members participate in most local road races, and we host five open races during the year.
Our triathlon section has coached swim sessions three times a week, regular bike rides and running with the rest of the club. Members compete in races from sprint distance to Ironman including Duathlons and Aquathons.
For young athletes, we provide opportunities at both Crystal Palace and at Coulsdon. We have recently attained Clubmark which recognises SLH as a well run , organised and safe club for Young Athletes.
And in addition, we have a very active social side to the Club… Whatever you are looking for,
South London Harriers can provide it.

Youth Development League U13 & 15
Our U13/U15 athletes were at Sutton Arena for their first event on the 4th May. We had a good team but in the U15 girls age group we were very short of throwers only managing to cover the shot, and it is definitely an area we will have to address in future events. It was good to see Lohita Allen-Aigbodion back and she ran well in the 100m and 200m and also finished 2nd in the shot. Georgia Holden finished 2nd in a very competitive 1500m and Lili Collins won the B string. Shantae Taylor did very well in the long jump going over 4metres.
Youth Development League U17 & 20
In the first match of the season at Norman Park our Under 17 and Under 20 teams came 2nd. to Kingston and Polytechnic. Results. There are some pictures in the Gallery. For a full report from Anne Roden:
Kristian Lennard first home for SLH in 2.41.03, Sue McDonald our first lady in 2.55.15. Four runners under 3 hours. SEE FORUM FOR ALL RESULTS. Photos by Dan Gillett and Matthew Kiernan (Croydon Harriers) are in the Gallery.
The Track is taking shape rapidly.....
After pre Xmas delays caused by rain, the contractors have been able to work continually through January, February and March and completion is anticpated by the end of May. All the tarmac is laid, the black rubber surface is waiting for the red coating and then the lines need to go down. The sand is in the jump pits and the container for the equipment is in position.
The infield and mini football pitches outside the track have still to be seeded so we will not be able to use them this year. The official opening will be on 16th July but we should be able to use the track before then. Have a look at pictures taken 21st. March.
NEW TRAINING SESSION
Anne Baba is now taking the training session for all Young Athletes on Sunday mornings. Details
