Further to the announcement about the Track Refurbishments, the date is nearly upon us for the renovations to begin… Monday 28th July. During the renovations, the track & infield are unable to be used for a minimum of 10 weeks. The facility is still open, the clubhouse & outside grass areas (with limited availability at times) are in use. However, large groups all running grass loops would not be practical or necessarily effective. Please be patient, this work is for the greater good of the club and fantastic news in the long-term.
The groups on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 1700 to 1800 hours are still going ahead but as explained above, events will be limited and health and safety must take priority.
If you are planning to train elsewhere, please bear in mind the majority of club training nights are Tuesdays & Thursdays. And if you are under 18, you would be required to have a qualified coach present whilst doing technical field events.
Dartford Harriers will be happy to approach another club on your behalf to enquire about usage, but remember you will have to abide by the relevant track rules and payments whilst you use their facilities.
Dartford Harriers AC are great value for money and we believe, the only club in the county that does not currently charge it’s members a track fee. This also means, and I trust you understand, there is no refund whilst the works take place.
All athletes, please talk to your coach to ensure you know what the plan is. Any questions or concerns, please ask the Clubs Management.
