Mini Marathon trials

The trials are now over for 2017 and the team selected for the 23rd April event and all team members should have received email confirmation. 

Travel arrangements are meeting at 06.30am outside Harrow Civic Centre on Sunday morning.

Coach will transport team into London and will depart Northumberland Avenue around 11am (approx.) for those wishing to return to Harrow.


The mini marathon trials to select the team to represent Harrow Borough will be held on Saturday 18th March at the Harrow Recreation Park (HA1 1RR). The London Mini Marathon event will be held on Sunday 23rd April as part of the main London Marathon event.

The final Harrow team will consist of up to 6 runners in each male and female category for U17, U15 and U13 age groups. We will also host an U11 fun run but this age group does not contest the main London event.

At the Harrow Trials the first 4 runners in each category automatically qualify for the Harrow team. The remaining 2 places in each category will be selected via times at the Trial or by official verified times submitted by applicants unable to attend the Trials due to previous commitments to other Athletic events. These athletes will be considered for a place subject to satisfactory written evidence prior to the entry closing date.

The trials timetable is –

  • 10.45am   Under 11’s Fun Run (1 mile)
  • 11.00am   Under 13’s race (2 miles)
  • 11.20am   Under 15’s race (2 miles)
  • 11.40am   Under 17’s race (2 miles)

Boys and girls will run in the same age group race.
