Woodstock Harriers A.C. was originally formed in 1924 when it comprised about 30 to 40 active members competing chiefly in local cross-country events. In addition, however, the Club participated in some track races, the home venue being a grass track inside Blenheim Park, by kind permission of the then Duke of Marlborough.
Due to the onset of the Second World War, when the Club was not active, it was disbanded and was not reformed until the early 1980s.
In 1982 the Club became affiliated to the various county, regional and national Associations and specialised mainly in Marathon and Ultra-Marathon events. In those days, although membership was no more than 15, individual and team honours were abundant and included team victories in the prestigious 55-mile London to Brighton Road Running Race and individual and team honours in many other races including the Isle of Wight Marathon.
Membership has steadily increased and we now have 50 competing members (35 men & 15 women) plus 30 ordinary non-competing members. If you would like to join the Woodstock Harriers please visit here.
