About Us

Introduction

Our club was created on the 1st May 2012, from the members of two well established Chorley based clubs, Chorley Harriers & Tri and Chorley Athletic Club. The club is a grass roots club and welcomes anyone, of virtually any age or ability, who is interested in running, walking, throwing, jumping and multi-event disciplines such as triathlon. It has grown on its reputation for being fun and friendly, but also with coaches able to develop athletes to the very highest levels.

Club members vary from competitors on the international and national stages, through to people who just want to get a little fitter; Yes .. one club can fit all!

The club is run by volunteers and has no paid employees.

The club is also affiliated to Engalnd Athletics.
