Victoria Park Harriers & Tower Hamlets Athletics Club

VPHTHAC is based out of St. Augustine’s Hall in the north-east corner of Victoria Park, east London. It was formed in 2001 as a merger of Victoria Park Harriers (founded 1926) and Tower Hamlets Athletics Club (founded 1976). The club is open to all, regardless of ability, from the age of 9 upwards. The membership of approximately 400 includes track, field, road and cross country athletes, from beginners to GB team members. Coached training sessions occur at both St. Augustine’s Hall and Mile End Stadium several times a week. The Club is a charitable trust (Registered Charity No.1091712) which aims to provide a friendly environment for the local community to take part in athletics and associated social activities.

The Club has its own substantial headquarters at St.Augustine's Hall, Cadogan Terrace, Victoria Park which provides changing, showering, a hall for indoor training, a weights room with multi-gym and free-weight equipment, a meeting room and a licensed bar. The Clubhouse is open five days a week and its use is free to all full Club members. The Clubhouse is located on the edge of Victoria Park giving direct access to the traffic-free running environment provided by the Park, the local canal towpaths, Hackney Marshes and the River Lea towpath. In addition, the Club uses the 8-lane, floodlit track at Mile End Stadium, Rhodeswell Road for track and field training on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and at weekends.
