 About the League

  • The Harrogate District Summer Race League is a friendly league of local running clubs which organises a series of summer evening races each year.
  • Races are generally 5-6 miles and on the road, although increasingly the races include off-road paths.
  • Distances are approximate and courses are not measured, which simplifies race organisation.
  • All races are covered by uk athletics licenses.
  • All races are followed by a social ‘supper’ provided by the host club.
  • Races are open only to members of affiliated clubs, with no guest runners permitted.
  • The league competition is followed by a handicap race and presentation evening: there are league prizes for individuals, club teams, and the handicap race.

The Club is again subsidising the cost of entry for members so you only need to pay £5 to enter 5 races and your supper is included!
