Looking for a club to join

Ballarat Harriers is one of Australia’s oldest sporting club and offers great membership options for the beginner right up to the most experienced runners.

​Our Cross Country Program has just commenced it's not too late to become a member! Ballarat Harriers has a reputation for providing some of the most challenging, varied and exciting cross country racing not only in Ballarat, but also Victoria.

Our program of weekly races takes full advantage of the natural beauty of the region – forests, creek trails, lakes, mountains, and parkland – all within 20 minutes of Ballarat.

During the summer season – October to March – Ballarat Harriers' compete in the Ballarat Regional Athletics Centre track and field competitions at Llanberris Reserve, Ballarat East. Our athletes can compete in the complete range of running, throwing and jumping events (yes, even pole vault), where they line up against other Harriers, as well as athletes from Ballarat’s three other athletics clubs.
