Small Group Club Sessions

We’ve had to make some changes to how our usual sessions work, in light of the ongoing pandemic. We are currently offering a variety of small group sessions, as detailed below.

These sessions are only available to first and second claim 2020/21/22 Hyde Park Harriers. To book a place on one of the sessions, please register via Spond and claim your place on the session of your choice. Please see our Membership Page for information on becoming a Hyde Park Harrier.

Information on Spond

As mentioned above, we are be limiting the number of people able who can attend the sessions according to the current EA and government guidelines. We also have the additional need to ensure we have a record of who has attended sessions, in order to honour the Track and Trace requirements for COVID-19.
