Club website

Inverness Harriers were founded in September 1947 so are currently celebrating their 75th anniversary year.

The club had a quiet early history and only existed in name between 1961 and 1969 when reconstituted and resumed training at Fraser Park and the Bught Stadium.

A major expansion began in the late 1970s, helped on its way by the opening of the Queens Park track in 1984.

Since then, the club has produced five full Great Britain internationals and eight Commonwealth Games athletes in addition to a host of Scotland caps and Inverness Harriers athletes regularly win national titles.

Most recently Megan Keith, who was elected a life member of the club this month, has taken European Cross Country U20 gold and U23 silver and has represented Great Britain in the senior World Cross Country Champs.

Membership is currently rebuilding and now sits at over 250.
