Leigh Harriers Athletics Club was formed in September 1909 and has an unbroken record of providing athletics for all the community.
In 2006 the club achieved Community Amateur Sports Club status and also became one of only four clubs in the Greater Manchester area to be awarded Club Mark Accreditation and was reaffirmed in 2013.
The Club’s home is on the Leigh Sports Village site, a top class facility with an excellent athletics track. Current athletes have represented Great Britain, England, Northern Counties, Greater Manchester, Wigan Borough, and Wigan Schools.
The club accepts children for training from the under 11 age group (9+ years old) and competes in all ages track and field, road racing, cross country, and fell running, supporting all National, Regional, County, and local competitions.
