About the Club Introduction to Traralgon Harriers

The Traralgon Harriers Athletics Club Inc. was founded in 1967.

We provide athletics and recreational running opportunities to our regional community, for people of all ages and abilities. Our club has a range of programs and events which cater to walkers, social and recreational runners and elite level athletes.

The club has over 150 members, and is the only club in Victoria which provides organised weekly runs. We also hold many weekend events, including Australia's oldest marathon, The Traralgon Marathon & Running Festival.

We are an inclusive community-based club which encourages participation and gender equality. We support local charities and ethical community organisations, and we rely on the skills, work and dedication of our members to run the club and our events.

We also have individuals and teams of varied abilities who represent the club in Athletics Victoria level events.
