The Harrow Half Marathon - Sunday, 16 September 2018
The ‘Harrow Half’ is a traffic free, chip timed half marathon. The course features historic and well-known landmarks, stunning views, parks, countryside as well as the attractions you would expect of a modern, thriving borough and town centre.
The event is organised by Harrow Athletics Club, ActiveTrainingWorld and Harrow Council. Harrow Athletics Club are based locally at the Bannister track in Hatch End – named in honour of the legendary Sir Roger Bannister, the first athlete to break the four minute mile, and who was born and brought up in Harrow.
More information can be found here and if you decide to take part and raise funds for us, please let us know.
