HARROW HALF 2020 EARLY BIRD ENTRIES NOW OPEN – AT LOWER PRICES!
Whether you’re looking for a target to achieve your New Year’s resolution or simply planning your 2020 race calendar, it’s the perfect time to enter the Harrow Half Marathon on Sunday September 13TH, 2020.
Once again, we are encouraging people to enter early by offering entries at an ‘early-bird’ rate for a limited period. The significantly reduced costs are as follows:
£24 for Club-affiliated runners
£26 for non-affiliated runners
£7 for entries for the Sir Roger Bannister Family Mile
For those who ran last year, you will recall that this is a big reduction on the final price for entering which was £29 / £31 / £7.
We have achieved this by deciding not to give everyone a free tee shirt after the race – there will still be medals for all. As you are probably aware, we have tried to lead the way on being truly conscious of our responsibilities to the environment and are continuing to look for ways to make the event more sustainable. Learning that many people now prefer not to have them, we are giving runners the option. You won’t get one automatically but If you do want one, they can be purchased on entry for £7.
We will also enable runners to order more than one, for a partner for example, and for the first time Family Mile entrants can order the same tee shirt too. Any tee shirts ordered after entry will cost £8. We will also be organising a collection of unwanted training and racing gear on race day to be passed on to a better home. T’shirt shown for illustration purposes only.
The event is again being organised by Harrow Athletics Club, Active Training World 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’
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
