Lucan Harries Club Gear.
Our club colours are red and black. Our singlet and tee-shirt are red with a black stripe going across the body from the opposite shoulder, showing the distinctive club crest, with Lucan Harriers written on the back. All members are requested to wear club colours when racing.
As well as the club singlet & tee-shirt for racing, we have a wide range of gear available to compliment your running wardrobe, whether you are training or racing. There are hoodies, polo shirts, dri-fit tee long sleeve tops & backpacks.
A number of times a year, our gear manager takes orders, which will be highlighted well in advance.
