Coburg Harriers Athletics Club welcomes new members to our friendly and inclusive club at the Harold Stevens Athletic Track.

Our club began in 1896 and counts Olympic medal winners, Australian record holders and Commonwealth Games representatives among its past members.

We provide a supportive and competitive environment with qualified coaches to help you reach your athletic goals, whether you are a recreational athlete or aiming for gold.

Club members can compete in Athletics Victoria events including cross country in winter, and track and field in summer, or join our casual training groups. The club hosts regular fun runs and an annual 24-Hour Carnival which attracts international entrants.

We are committed to our mission of a friendly, inclusive and diverse club, connected to the local community.

We are sad to advise the passing of one of our Harriers greatest athletes, Noel Clough, who was a Gold medalist in the 880 yards at the 1966 Commonwealth Games, a regular medalist at the Australian Nation Championships and a World Record holder in Master 40+ 400m and 400m Hurdles. 

TRACK HIRE: The Harold Stevens Athletics Track and Clubrooms are available for hire via the Coburg Athletics Ground Management Committee. This committee is made up of representatives of the Coburg Harriers and the Coburg Little Athletics Centre. The CAGMC is the leaseholder from Moreland City Council and manages the athletic track and grounds on behalf of the two clubs. It is an incorporated body to manage the grounds and buildings on behalf of two sporting clubs.
