Good to see you all

It is fantastic to see so many juniors back at athletics on Saturday mornings and Monday evenings. You all look in great form! Everyone is paying attention to their spatial awareness and using dollops of antibac hand lotion!

The only downside is on Monday evenings - the floodlights aren't working, so therefore having to use small portable ones, until they are fixed. If parents could park facing the rec with their lights on that would be a big help! Even better though would be someone to come forward and donate an amount of money to pay for the 30 year lights to be replaced or repaired!


It is also good to see a large amount of adults running on both days too. On Mondays the adults have opted not to use the rec and can be seen running through Harling with high viz and head torches on.

If you are interested in joining us, we'd loved to see you.

Juniors returning later in August

Our junior sessions will be restarting on Saturday Aug 22nd, followed by Saturday August 29th, Saturday 5th September.

We are starting with Saturday sessions to begin with so that we can adjust to our new Covid safe training sessions. We hope to then continue with the Monday sessions as from 7th September. Rules and restrictions are constantly changing and we are closely monitoring the advice which is given from UKA. You will be informed of any changes as they occur.

Just a few notes before you all turn up: If you would like your junior athlete to join the above sessions you MUST book your place as we are restricted to the number of athletes we can have in each group. This is really important. Please send an email to garybrotherhoodhac@gmail.com detailing which sessions you would like to book on to. Parents MUST also complete a Health questionnaire for their athlete at the start of each session (these will be given to you at the start of the session). Again, this is really important - no form no training! We will send out details of restrictions and regulations that we must all adhere to nearer the time. Athlete must also be a paid up member of the club. If you did not renew in April then you must do so before you or your athlete starts to train with us again. Please contact Martin Gooderham on harlingathletics@gmail.com if you need further information on the membership payments and fees.

The HAC coaches hope to see you soon.

East Anglian League 2020 Update

It is with disappointment that we ahe to announce that there will be no EAL competition for this year 2020, due to the Coronavirus.

With difficulties in social distancing still in place and the fact that many officials will be shielding, organisers felt that unfortunately this years competition should be cancelled. Sorry everyone.

Training and the Coronavirus

In response to UK athletics statement regarding COVID 19 all training sessions for both junior and seniors will be suspended until at least the end of April. 


We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but the welfare of our athletes  and coaches is paramount at this time.


HAC Comittee

Statement from England Athletics 


England Athletics advises that all face-to-face activity such as club training sessions, events, competitions, club committee and face-to-face meetings, athlete camps, running groups and social events should be suspended until at least the end of April.


The decision has been taken in the interests of athletes, runners, officials, coaches, volunteers, supporters and the wider athletics and running communities. This decision is also in alignment with actions taken by the home country athletics federations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and is similar to action taken by other sports.


Where possible, athletes and runners at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.


England Athletics will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates on the impact to our sport in the coming weeks. We appreciate that the current situation will undoubtedly place our member clubs in a difficult situation and we are working with UKA and the other Home Country Athletics Federations on the best way to help alleviate the situation and will update you as plans evolve.

Harling Athletics Club AGM & Presentation Night

What a night!

The evening started with the AGM whereby we said farewell to our present Chairlady Claire who has stepped down. The previous committee members were re-elected back in. New roles will be finalised at the next meeting in March.

There was now food, freshly prepared by Paul's Plaice fish n chip van in the carpark of the social club. Whilst we were eating, Martin Hinchlifee: Close Up Magician worked the room with some pretty amazing magic tricks!

6.30     Doors open

7.00     AGM

7.15     Food, entertainment and music.

9.00     Awards presentation – juniors followed by seniors


We have booked a magician as the main entertainment for the evening, he will spend a couple of hours working his way around the tables wowing us with magic tricks while we relax, eat and drink. There will also be music, dancing (not compulsory) and, undoubtedly, some ‘jokes’ from coach Gary.

We have booked a fish ‘n’ chips van to provide the food and they will be serving from 7.15pm till 9pm.

The cost of the food and entertainment will be subsidised by the club: The cost to members for the evening will be £3 / head. Tickets will be sold at the door between 6.30pm and 7pm and each ticket will entitle you to a meal from the fish ‘n’ chip van. The meal choices will be fish and chips or sausage and chips (of course you can choose to have just chips or sausage or fish).


It is important to stress that the AGM is open to all members and all are encouraged to attend. The AGM is free to attend, the £3 charge is not payable if you are just attending the AGM.


In order for the fish ‘n’ chips van to be properly prepared we will need to give them an indication of numbers for each meal choice in advance. Therefore, can you please respond to this email advising:


If you plan to attend

How many will be in you party

Number of fish and chips

Number of sausage and chips


If you have previously advised us that you will not be attending, there is no need to respond again. Otherwise, we would appreciate a response from everyone, whether you will be attending or not.


It would be great to see as many members as possible there on the evening, celebrating each other’s achievements over the past year and motivating each other for the year ahead.


Thank you for all your hard work and dedication over the past year and we look forward to seeing you on the 8th February.
