In Case of Emergency Tags (ICE)

IN CASE of EMERGENCY (ICE) identification tags. All runners are encouraged to carry with them an ICE tag whenever and wherever they run. The company ICEtags will do a set of three, each with the Arrows logo on the back and your info on the front, currently (April 2017) for only £4.20 (including postage) ... a real bargain. Each tag comes with a small hole so you can thread your shoe lace through it and have it permanently fixed to your shoe so you never forget it. The club logo is already stored at ICEtags.

Club Ethos

We've tried to capture the character of our club in a club ethos statement.

As many of us run to improve, we are always running with the aim to catch the person just in front but please be mindful as a runner in a club you are also responsible for looking out for the person just behind.

As a running CLUB we welcome members in all shapes and sizes.

Suggestion Box

Mail your suggesstions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. The club is run by a small management committee - all runners like yourself - but we don't necessarily know all the answers all of the time. There is a lot of stuff to do to keep the club working smoothly but if you have a suggestion for something new or to change something we'd love to hear it.

Running Safety

Safe running tips

Just a few thoughts to help you stay safe when running.

1. If at all possible don't run on your own. Running with a 'buddy' is much easier especially on those long marathon training runs.
2. Even if you travel light carry some form of ID with you - a card with your name and an 'ICE' number (In Case of Emergency). A phone is a good idea too if you can manage it.
3. Do some warm up exercises (rather than stretches) before you start your run. These should be designed to increase your heart rate and prepare your body for running.

Where to meet

We have the the use of a room and additional facilities at the St George's School Sports Centre off Carlton Road. As well as the hire of a room we will also be able to use some of the other facilities in the centre too. From now on we are asking people to follow the signs to the sports centre and go straight in and upstairs to 'our' room. The first member of the club committe to arrive will go and get the key - but the room will normally be unlocked already when we arrive. We meet on Tuesdays and Thurdays at about 7:20 pm ready to run at about 7:30

Arrows Kit

Harpenden Town Coat of Arms features red and white stripes (full description here) so it was natural for the Arrows to adopt the Harpenden colours. Officially we run in red vests with white side panels and black shorts. (Yes it really is that specific!)

There are a couple of local clubs with 'similar' colours - but ours is best of course!
