How Harriers began - a short insight

Hailsham Harriers was one of a number of clubs set up in the eighties as a result of the road running boom at the time. While many others have fallen by the wayside, Hailsham have gone from strength to strength. These days they are one of the strongest clubs in the county competitions with talented individuals always among the prizes.

The club started in 1983 when a group of social workers from the Lansdowne Children’s Centre, eager to get fit for the local "fun run" formed Lansdowne Striders. The following year a public meeting brought about a merger with the already existing Hailsham AC to form Hailsham Harriers and the club quickly moved into the mainstream of Sussex road running. From meagre beginnings the Hailsham club went on to win the Sussex Grand Prix Road Running a number of times.

Harriers today are producing some promising young athletes.
