The Harvel 5 - Harvel 5

Consistently rated by Runners World UK as one of their top 50 UK races. Consistently rated by the Harvel Hash House Harriers as one of their top days out!! WE PURPOSEFULLY LIMIT THE RACE ENTRIES TO APPROXIMATELY 900 RUNNERS. YOU WILL NEED TO ACT FAST, IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF OUR 2020 RACE. In 2019, we sold out, in less than an hour of opening entries!! WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER PLACES 'ON THE DAY'. Due to being completely sold out, well in advance. As per last year WE WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO SUPPORT: -A WAITING LIST -Nor will we be able to allow runners to DEFER their entry to 2021, nor SWAP their race place, with another runner. Check out our website, for more details: Think of it as a ‘well organised, club based 5 mile race, collided with a English country village fete, and a industrial tanker full of beer’ and you will pretty much have described our race. Our faster runners will complete the course in around 25 minutes, whereas we know that our event also attracts newer, less speedy runners. We encourage all abilities Run partly on (partially closed) roads, plus through the Trottiscliffe Country park, and set on the edge of the North Downs, it is a simply beautiful event. Check out our reviews on Runners World, to get a full sense of what you are letting yourself in for: We hope to see you on the day...Till then On On
