Welcome to Newburgh Nomads Running Club

Newburgh Nomads Running Club are based in West Lancashire, England. A no-nonsense club for road, trail, cross-country and fell runners. We organise the Harrock Hill race series. Join us for a run.

Harrock Hill Series

The Harrock Hill race series takes place on the fourth Wednesday of May, June, July and August.

The route is approximately 8.2km (5.2mi) in length with 90% off-road, taking public rights of way.  There are two longish climbs making up most the 265m of ascent during. The course is partially marked where appropriate, the remainder should be obvious.

We usually manage decent weather and a good turnout in excess of 120 runners for each race.  Our famed "veg box" prizes go down a treat with category winners at every event.


Farmers Arms, Chorley Road, Bispham, L40 3SL.

Race registration is at the Farmers Arms, Chorley Road, Bispham, L40 3SL. 

Registration opens from 6pm. There is a good 1/2 mile walk to the start line, so please ensure you register with plenty of time to spare.

All races start at 7:30pm, except August which starts at 7:00pm.
If you retire from the race, please inform the closest event marshal or race registration before you leaving the event.

Single race entry

£5 per race. Same price for all entrants. Enter on the day.  Please register early to avoid the rush.

Series entries

There are four races in the series with prizes for male and female series winners.  Enter the series at either the May or June event.  Your best three results are counted. Entry fee for the series is £15, so if you run all four, you get one race free!

Series runners must report to race registration in person and will be given a new bib number for each race. Please do not run with a number from a previous race, it not only messes up the results, it potentially puts yourself and others at risk if we don't know who is running in each race.
