Knowsley Harriers takes pride in being a club that caters for all abilities from competitive athletes to first time runners. We have several training options for all, with social runs also being available for our members to get to know more about each other, and get fit in the process.

We officially train on Tuesdays and Thursdays (19:00 – 20:00 pm) from both Kirkby Sports College (Tuesdays only) and the Halewood Environment Centre.

If you’re a new member who fancies giving it a go, feel free to come down to any of our Tuesday or Thursdays sessions.

Junior Track & field based athletics session take place every Tuesday between 18:00 and 18:45. These are for Junior athletes aged between 7-17 years old.

The junior sessions are £1 per session to help pay for the cost of track hire, so our juniors have exclusive use of the track for their sessions. We focus mainly on running with relaxed, fun sessions and games. Click here for more information.

Couch to 5k

In order to attract more people to the sport, Knowsley Harriers A.C. run a very successful couch to 5k scheme several times a year. please contact us to find out more details of these sessions. New runners are recommended to begin the sessions at the start of the cycle which will lead up to completing your first Halewood 5k race.

Sunday Runs

With many of our members focusing on the half marathon and marathon distances, there are regularly long runs planned for Sunday mornings. These are organised by members within the club, and take place at various times through the day depending on who is on board. Once a member, you will be able to communicate with your clubmates in order to ensure that you do not miss these longer runs!

Monday Social Runs

On Mondays members from various groups meet up to have a social run and catch up on the various events from the weekend. These are run as either one large group, or split into a slower and quicker groups depending on what the members want on the night. There are plenty of opportunities to loop back and ensure that the group stays together and has a good time. These are usually run from the Halewood clubhouse at 6:15pm. Get in contact via Facebook, Twitter, or email for more information.

Club Mile

On the last Thursday of each month all of our members that own a club vest are asked to wear it to training. All club members will run the first mile of the session in one group. This is a great way to promote the club and gives everyone from different groups a chance to talk to each other. After the first mile the club divides back into the set group structure.


All of our groups are lead by experienced runners. Group 1 train with a highly experienced coach and are constantly reaching the next level in athletic performance. Groups 2-4 are coached by fellow runners, which allows the groups to explore new parts of the surrounding area and have effort sessions anywhere along the way.

If you are interested in helping to lead any of the groups, please inform your current coach (or contact the club via email) and we will discuss the possibility of providing you with UKA coach training funded by the club.
