About the Malvern Harriers

The Malvern Harriers Athletic Club was founded in 1892 and is one of Australia’s oldest athletics clubs.

Whilst involved in a wide range of athletic competition from road and cross country races to track and field, the club also caters for people looking to achieve their fitness goals amongst a supportive group environment. Affiliated with Athletics Victoria, Malvern provides access to all levels of competition in track and field events throughout the summer season and road and cross country races throughout the winter season.

Tan Relays Wrap-up

Saturday the 15th of September saw the 2018 running of the Tan relays and the end of the XCR season for another year which made some sad, some nostalgic and some as excited as your correspondent’s eldest daughter at her kindergarten fairy dress up day. Saturday the 15th of September also saw a very busy Tan track where car spaces were at a premium.

Running Against The Wind

Claire won the socks at Ballarat!

“Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
against the wind”

- Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

When thinking of world famous lakes there may be a number that spring straight to mind including those such as Lake Michigan, Loch Lomond, Loch Ness or even Lake Eyre here in Australia. However, a lake that has, depending on your point of view, become either famous or infamous for members of the Malvern Harriers is Lake Wendouree in Ballarat, home of the Athletics Victoria’s 15km annual road race.
