About our Club

Welcome to the Trentham United Harriers & Walkers Club

We are the largest group of runners and walkers in the Upper Hutt valley and welcome new members of all abilities. Trentham United Harriers Club consists of local people who firstly and most importantly enjoy running and walking. Whether it is competitively or just to get fit while solving the worlds problems, there is always a warm shower (or cold if you prefer) and possibly a beverage waiting back in our well equipped clubrooms.

Our Clubrooms are nestled in the idyllic setting of Trentham Memorial Park in Upper Hutt, which provides great cross-country courses and is easy running/walking distance to flat or hilly off-road tracks and trails and well measured road circuits.

The Trentham United Harriers Club believes in promoting fitness to the younger generations and provides a well-attended coaching clinic for our junior runners during our Club Season (April - September). This helps prepare them for school, club and inter-club running events.

Our Senior runners and walkers are regularly competing in inter-clubs, 5km, 10km, half & full marathons, mountain & trail races and ultra marathons and fun runs & walks.

We meet at our Clubrooms on Saturdays (Club Day) at 1:30pm during our Club season (April - September). Our Juniors meet on Thursdays during our Club season (please get in touch for the current times) and our Seniors (runners & walkers) also meet at the Clubrooms every Thursday at 6pm all year round.

So come down and give it a go. We're happy to have you try a few club days with us and if you like it, you can join the Club.
