South London Harriers

We are launching a new website. You will be redirected there in a moment.

The Gazette is the magazine of South London Harriers, published twice a year in the early summer and autumn.  Is it the oldest continually published club sporting magazine in the world?  Who knows, but if it isn't, then it must be close to it.  It was first published in 1885, so it has now notched up 130 years of continual news, views and results.  

A small selection of recent issues and scanned archive issues, all in pdf format, is carried on this website along with a few selected articles in text format.  It is intended that this digital archive will be expanded over time.  

The next issue is due for publication in May 2018.  If you have anything that you would like to submit for it, please contact SLH chairman Steve Rigby.  We'd love for more members to be involved in keeping this proud institution going successfully.
