We hope that you will decide to join TVH, which has been in existence since 1887, and should you need any further information, please contact one of the members of our Committee, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
We train at Linford Christie Stadium, West London, which is situated at the back of Hammersmith Hospital on Wormwood Scrubs and we have our own Club House at trackside plus a Cross Country course around Wormwood Scrubs.
Thames Valley Harriers caters for every standard, from beginners to Olympic Champions, and also offers a full coaching programme. All ages, both male and female, from 9 years upwards are welcome and we compete at all levels on the Road, Cross Country and Track & Field. If you are looking for more gentle activity, we also have a joggers group.
The TVH Club House at trackside is open for refreshments and a chat on training days and the hall area is used for indoor work and events. Social events held in the HQ are also part of the Club scene. Tuesday is the focal night, and we ask that all potential new members attend on this night if possible. It is also our principal training night when normally a full complement of Coaches are on hand for advice.
The various groups commence from 6.30pm onwards on Tuesdays and Thursdays through to track closure at 9pm. Sprint groups also train at the track at the weekends and we have our Kids on Track sessions on Saturday mornings.
On arrival at the Stadium, the TVH Club House is located inside the stadium.
