RACING WITH HYDE PARK HARRIERS

Although many of our members just run for fun or for fitness, we also have an active race programme.

Each year, we designate a number of races as “club events” and these contribute to our yearly awards.

For news about upcoming races, race reports and photos, please check out our blog.

Club Championship

For 2016/2017 there will be separate Club Championships for road, off-road and fell running.  We believe this encourages participation, irrespective of ability in competitive opportunities and supports local races.

Club Competitor

Unlike the Club Championship which seeks to establish who in the club has run the fastest at designated races, the Club Competitor Championship recognises those athletes that have regularly represented the club throughout the year.

Road

The series takes place between April and March and consists of ten designated races with distances ranging from 1 mile to 13.1 miles.

The competition is open to all first claim members who compete in these designated races and who have paid their Club subscription in full.

The best seven performances for each member will be totalled giving you your final score.

THE HYDE PARK MILE

Each year we invite any and all runners to come and compete on our ‘home turf’ in a single mile race – The Summer Mile.

The Hyde Park Harriers ‘Summer Mile’ is open to all runners of all ages and all abilities – entrants are grouped based on predicted race times so expect tight competition however fast you may be.

The Summer Mile has grown year on year and now includes separate junior and race walking waves.

Entrants in the race walking wave can expect fierce competition against Team GB athletes and international entrants.
