  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2019

    A great 10k if you like short steep uphill and fast downhills around Harrow School. Enjoy the challenge and forget about a PB.
  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2019

    Race was very good. My only complaint is the minimum character requirement in this review box. Very uncivilised.
  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2019

    This will probably become my favourite 10k. Strenuous start with the second loop up Football Lane taking its toll even on experienced runners. But compensated by many downhill sections. Faultless organization, in the beautiful grounds of Harrow school, with toilets, changing rooms and showers. Marshals were very supportive and attentive, since roads were not closed to traffic. Overall a great experience. To be repeated.
  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2019

    Organisation and marshalling was fantastic. A very hilly course, 2 laps of Harrow on the Hill. A beautiful sunny day for a beautiful setting.
  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2019

    It is a really nice race and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The course is what I would describe as undulating but an overall good workout especially if you are in marathon training
  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2019

    Great well-established and organised local race. The course falls just short of 5* because the leaders quickly hit the back of the field on the second ascent of football lane in the first short k loop. I also felt the 'King of the Hill' element generally was a little underwhelming expecting a much tougher, longer drag. One idea (though perhaps logistically tricky) would be to have two timing pads one at the bottom and top of (for example) Peterborough road to create a mini time-trial within the race itself where no-one would know the winner until the end. Otherwise I couldn't fault the atmosphere, the marshalls and the cake at the end was a lovely touch. I thought the prize voucher was a little stingy but that I imagine was up to the sponsor - cash would attract a stronger field at the top end.
  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2019

    A tough course, not for the faint-hearted this is a challenging but rewarding 10k. Superbly organised with excellent facilities this is a great race. The course was well-marshelled and all the volunteers were friendly and helpful. The post-race cake was a particular highlight: how lovely to have such an array of homemade delights at the finish line! The course itself is challenging...which is what makes it so fun. Whilst this isn't a PB course, it's a great way to start your season and test your fitness. I enjoyed the race and will look forward to trying this again next year. I wouldn't recommend this as your first 10K race unless you're used to running on hills.Thank you so much to the organisers for hosting an excellent race.
  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2019

    Very enjoyable, excellent organisation and a very challenging course. The clue is in the name, straight up the hill from the start.
  • Did the Harrow Hill 10k in 2018

    Remember that even with 2 uphill kms, there are 8 that are downhill!
