  8. Sheffield United Walking Club were part of Sheffield United Harriers , in 1976 the running side of Sheffield United Harriers became part of Sheffield Athletic Club , the walkers remained as a separate unit outside of this .At some time in the last decade Sheffield Athletic Club became City of Sheffield Athletic Club and the walkers rejoined. They were never part of Hallamshire.
