Olympic Legacy: How to join…..Thurrock Harriers
Date posted: 19-08-2012
AS part of our Olympic legacy series, YourThurrock went along to Thurrock Harriers in Blackshots to see how aspiring athletes and/or joggers could join the club.
It isn’t all about finding the next Jessica Ennis or Mo Farah, although that would be great. It is about getting out and getting some exercise.
The club doesn’t just need runners, it needs coaches and volunteers.
There are encouraging signs as the club house had around thirty calls last week alone.
And hopefully, there will be a large number lining up for the Mel Batty 10K on Sunday August 26th at 9.30am.
YT spoke to head coach, Dave Staines about how to get involved.
