Harrow Half Marathon goes ‘Single use Plastic FREE’
The Harrow Half Marathon on Sunday September 16th will be London’s first ‘Single Use Plastic Water Bottle Free’ event. Runners will be able to refresh and rehydrate themselves at water stations along the course with OOHO. It’s water in a biodegradable sachet, and the sachet is made using a 100% seaweed based membrane. Runners just have to ‘nip and sip’ the sachet. Removing single use plastic bottles and cups from the course is a big step towards achieving our goal of becoming a more sustainable half marathon. We’re grateful to Selfridges and Skipping Rocks Lab for helping to make this happen.
The Harrow Half Marathon is back on 16th 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.

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.
