Club meetings..


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!


Ampthill and Flitwick Flyers run in red with a white diagonal.
Watford Joggers run in red and white quarters
Bungay Black Dog run in red.. with a black dog... well you get the idea!


As some of you know the club orginally formed under the name of Harpenden Aro Runners because we met at Aro sports. But we always called ourselves 'The Arrows'. There's lots of clubs out there called 'harriers' or 'joggers', 'runners' or athletics clubs but as far as we know we ARE the Arrows!

When we changed the name we asked one of our members - Artist Johjo Wood  to come up with a new logo. The result is a fabulous runner sprinting along a stylised arrow.

Once the logo was incorporated onto our red and white kit - front and back - the result was an excellent, easy to spot design for our club kit.

Why do we need it?

Well, in order to be incorporated in either ARC or England Athletics we HAVE to declare our club colours and they have to be approved. (They have to be sufficiently different to other local clubs).

When we run certain events we are expected to wear them - eg the Cross Country leagues

They are also excellent for allowing members to spot each other at events and they also serve as a fantastic advertisment for the club - attracting new members every time we go out in force.

Even on the away marathons we've met up with people who've said they are local and might like to meet up with us.



'Vests' are the thing we have to have but we also have T shirts for those of us who are less.. extreme?

We've recently added the red Hoodie and the hats but as we grow we are looking to increase the range. Maybe a lightweight waterproof Jacket next?


You can download an order for from here, fill it in and return it to the kit secretary WITH YOUR PAYMENT

I've included a few pictures of members competing in the club kit, and admiring their trophies too!

Don't we look fab!
