Race 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.

We have separate Club Championships for road, off-road and fell running.  We also have a new league category for Marathon & Ultra running. We believe this encourages participation, irrespective of ability in competitive opportunities and supports local races. The competitions are open to all first claim members who compete in these designated races and who have paid their Club subscription in full.

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