Mini Marathon trials

Due to the postponement of the London Marathon until 4th October 2020, the Harrow Borough trials that were due next Saturday, 21st March will now also be held later this year nearer the actual event.


The mini marathon trials to select the team to represent Harrow Borough will be held on 21st March, 2020 at the Harrow Recreation Park (HA1 1RR).
The London Mini Marathon event will be held on Sunday 26th April 2020 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. All times approximate.
