Belgrave Harriers, founded in 1887, are one of the leading athletics clubs in Britain, with headquarters located in Wimbledon, close to Wimbledon Common.

In the early days, Belgrave's headquarters were in Belgravia, and races were held along the Embankment of the River Thames and over the common lands south of London. Nowadays, Belgrave's home track is located at the Millennium Arena, Battersea Park, and 'Belgravians' train there on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Belgrave Harriers compete in track and field (in the Premiership of the British Athletics League), road running, racewalking and cross country, and have traditionally drawn their members from South London and Surrey, but in recent decades have attracted athletes from counties all over England, the Home Nations and overseas.

Belgrave Harriers' most successful period lasted from the 1920s to 1950s, but the 21st century has seen a resurgence, and they have won 29 national championships in this period, on the road, cross-country and track.

Their membership contains several of Britain's leading athletes, including Olympic silver medallist and World Champion Phillips Idowu, Goldie Sayers, Dwain Chambers and Chicago Marathon winner Paul Evans.
