History

The Club came into being in 1887 as East Twickenham Harriers, which, as it grew, became Twickenham Harriers in 1888 and Thames Valley Harriers in 1890. Steve Cotterill was the Club’s first National Cross Country Champion in 1892. The past sixty years has seen International status be attained by over one hundred Valley athletes. Olympic Honours have come to many past members, and the Club’s President, Linford Christie OBE is the former Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth 100m Champion.
