History

1956 - Present

Kaimai Relay Team 1980The Tauranga Ramblers Harrier Club was proud to celebrate fifty years of running, competing and enjoying the sport in 2006. We look back with gratitude to the hundreds of people who have been members and who have helped form the club and make it what it is today. Our gratitude goes to our far-sighted founders in 1956, to our runners past and present, to the officials, coaches and committee members who have given generously of their time and skills, to our sponsors and to the many other friends, especially partners and parents who have supported the club with loyalty and encouragement. As we reach this point in our history, membership is steady over a wide range of ages and the club is in good heart. People are coming to discover what harriers have long known - that running in any form, competitive or otherwise - is a joyful and fulfilling activity.

"You have to forget your last marathon before you try another. Your mind can't know what's coming."
Frank Shorter.
