Harrow Schools Cross Country Challenge

This year‘s Harrow Schools C.C. Challenge will take place on Wednesday October 17th. Schools have been mailed with the following information.

This year the event is FREE to enter – the Club is using proceeds from the Harrow half-marathon to cover running costs.

The FREE entry is a trial for this year to encourage more entries and athletes from schools in the catchment area. Due to the ongoing difficulty of finding volunteers available during the day to officiate, this event is now on the same day as (and follows) the primary schools’ event.  If you can help as a marshal, please mail Damian Nevins
