The Sir Roger Bannister Family Mile will once again be held in the grounds of Harrow School. Runners will be chip timed and get a finisher’s medal.
Having made history last year as London’s first ‘Single Use Plastic Water Bottle Free’ event, we will be doing so again. Indeed, we are looking at further ways of becoming even more sustainable. Your suggestions are welcome at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The event is again being organised by Harrow Athletics Club, ActiveTrainingWorld and Harrow Council. Harrow AC is 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.

Harrow Half Marathon goes ‘Single use Plastic FREE’
We are pleased to announce that once again we will be offering ‘Ooho’ water sachets for our 2019 event. In 2018 Harrow Half Marathon was London’s first ‘Single Use Plastic Water Bottle Free’ event. Runners were able to refresh and rehydrate themselves at water stations along the course with OOHO, water in a biodegradable sachet that is made using a 100% seaweed based membrane. . Removing single use plastic bottles and cups from the course was a big step towards achieving our goal of becoming a sustainable half marathon. We’re grateful to Selfridges and Skipping Rocks Lab for helping to make this happen. Find out more

Harrow HM – Blog by Laura Turner-Alleyne
It was a regular Harrow AC committee meeting in April, Keith (our Chairman and Harrow HM organiser) was telling us excitedly about the plans to host the Harrow HM. As I listened, my imagination started to run away with me; thoughts of me triumphantly running through the town I grew up in, supporting the club I have been a member of for 25 years, wearing my Harrow AC vest once again with pride. YES, I AM GOING TO RUN THE HARROW HALF MARATHON.
