Running & Walking
RIVERSIDE HARRIERS RUNNING CLUB
Riverside Harriers running club was started in 1987, as (Glenwood Harriers) and operates in the Durban North area, from Riverside Sports Club, Radar Drive (next to Golden Hours School). The club caters for beginners, social runners, the more serious runner as well as walkers. The walkers walk the same times as the runners and the club caters for serious and more casual walkers. Our annual subscription fees are R670 – this makes you a member of Riverside Sports.
The club has many members who have earned Green Numbers in Comrades, and still very actively participate in running, as well as the administration side of the sport.
