Welcome to the Traralgon Harriers Athletics Club

We are a running club for people of all ages and abilities, aiming to provide a fun and supportive environment for new and experienced runners alike.

In addition to hosting our weekly Thursday Night runs, the club organises some of Victoria’s best known running events, including the Traralgon Marathon, the Walhalla Wound Up and our annual King & Queen of the Mountain.  While many of our events target the serious or more seasoned runner, we welcome people of all abilities.  Running with the Harriers means running for enjoyment, and our fun, friendly approach makes the club a great option for anyone wanting to improve their fitness and their running, while enjoying the company of positive and supportive people.

Swaggy Wilson & Nick Schilling Memorial Run

The Swaggy Wilson Memorial 12km event has been in place since 1997 when Geoff Wilson died suddenly.  Following consultation with their families the club recently decided to name the 6km event on the same day the Nick Schilling Memorial in memory of Nick who died in 2015.  Both men enjoyed running with the club for many years, they also suffered from mental health conditions and took their own lives.
The club recognises the importance of celebrating their involvement in our club as well as promoting the mental health benefits from running.  We also encourage all members and their families to regularly monitor their own mental health as well as that of your family and friends.  It is important that we recognise that we are all vulnerable at times and we may need to seek help from family, friends and professional services such as Lifeline, Beyond Blue, Men’s helpline and the like.  For more information refer to the event page.
NB. Any funds raised from this event will be donated to BEYOND BLUE.

Thursday Night Run/Walk

With the exception of a few weeks over Christmas, you can run or walk with the Harriers every Thursday night.  See the calendar below for the location of the next outing.  You can find all of the Thursday race results on our Results Archive page (and some happy snaps on our Thursday night photos page).

New Runners – please arrive around 5.45pm on your first night and approach one of the volunteers on duty (identified by a high vis vest).  They will register you and ensure you are covered by insurance, give you a club brochure, explain what you need to know and introduce you to a few others.  Directions to the course are available using the Google maps function from the calendar.
