Hart Road Runners is a friendly, inclusive running club for runners in the Fleet, Church Crookham and surrounding areas. We meet as a club outside the entrance to the new Hart Leisure Centre in Emerald avenue in Fleet (but this can vary so please check the calendar) on Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm and Thursdays at 7:00pm. There are a number of other sessions that take place so please see the Coaching page to find out which sessions are right for you.
HRR was formed over 30 years ago by a small group of sporting enthusiasts from Fleet & Church Crookham area, who wished to train together for the first Fleet Half Marathon. In those days the Club was known as the “Fleet Run for Fun Club”.
The Club went from strength to strength, with the name changing to “Hart Road Runners”, in fact, the Club still has some of those founder members running today.
The objective of the Club is to encourage and promote amateur road and cross country running in a inclusive and supportive environment. To meet these objectives we offer the following activities to any runner who either wants to develop further or just run for fun: Track training, Coached Sessions, Social and Group runs, Road Running and Cross Country Leagues, and Club Competitions. Our aim is to offer as many diverse and interesting activities as possible so that there is something to suit everyone.
The club meets regularly on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays so why not come down and join us, meet the coaches and try out a couple of sessions. If you decide to join you will have access to our highly trained and experienced coaches, who can offer training plans suited for your individual goals. You will also receive our weekly news emails and to enjoy other club benefits. Please click on the link to find out more information on how to join the club or attend a first session.
We receive a lot of queries about what standard you have to be to join. As mentioned above, we cater for those who can run 5 km to semi-elite. If you can run 5 km (at any speed), we’d suggest our Bridge Club on Wednesdays and Saturdays. If you can run around 10 km (at any speed) come along on a Thursday night – you can either join our “steady six” group or run further to around 7-9 miles. In winter these are road runs, in summer we go off-road quite a lot. On Tuesdays we run coached sessions of speed or hill training and are mainly on-road but again sometimes off-road in summer. On Mondays we run sessions at the track.
