Club History
Harborough Athletics Club was founded in 1984 by International athlete Dick Callan, Pete Leach and Stewart Harrison and has grown to well over 200 members including a burgeoning junior section of some 70 to 80 young athletes.

The club has a wide age and ability range and caters for both the serious competitive athlete and those merely running to keep fit. It competes on road, country and on the track in events to appeal to most tastes. The cross country fixtures include the North Midlands League and County, Midland and National championships as well as the National and Midland Relays. Road races feature on the calendar throughout the year with both the Leicester Road running league and the East Midlands Grand Prix and a club championship series that is contested over 7 featured races over differing distances. The London Marathon also proves to be an attractive springtime goal for many club members. Participation in the Midlands and National road relays is always popular as is the Round Leicester Relay in August, in which HAC finishes three teams of thirteen most years. The senior menís team has just won promotion to Midland Track and Field league Div 5 and both Men and Womenís veteran teams compete in the Midlands Vets Track and Field League, with the men notably winning the B cup final for the second year in a row recently.
