The popular Harriers Marathon Celebration Evening will this year be held on Friday 14th June at Julio’s Restaurant in Halifax starting at 7:45pm.

If you have run a marathon or ultra, come along and celebrate your achievements. Everyone is welcome including partners, training partners and Harriers friends. Priority will be given to people that have run a marathon in autumn 2023 or spring 2024 (e.g. Chester 2023 or Manchester, London or Leeds 2024 or an ultra). These marathon runners will have booking priority until Tuesday 21st May. If you have not run a marathon but would like to help the marathon runners celebrate, sign up now to go on the reserve list and you will be moved to the full list after 21th May if space is available.

The last date to sign up, subject to availability, will be Friday 7th June and your order for your starter and main course is needed by Wednesday 12th June. See Julio’s website for the menu, link below.

To join us please contact Chris Kirkbride via email to kirkrhino@aol.com or Facebook message or on the list in the school café.

This event is limited to a maximum of 32, so sign up early. First come, first served.

This is a new 10km road race organised by Halifax Harriers as a replacement event for the Helen Windsor. The inaugural race starts at 9.30 a.m. on Sunday 7th July 2024 from the Greetland All Rounders Club, where there will be toilets, changing facilities and refreshments ... but no bar, as it is a Sunday morning.
