Event diary

Is there a list of events that club members ran in 2017 and so far in 2018 that we could publish to the site as a helpful resource when we are looking for our next challenge. A centralised view of great events and a short summary of each, along with format/distance, price, date/time etc. Maybe this already exists?

Re: Event diary

Hi Drew,

Here is a list of the races that I am aware of NHRR members competing in last year, together with an indication of the type of event (as the name I have recorded is not always clear).

As far as the cost or a summary of the events, I'm afraid I can't help you there.

(you might have to scroll down a fair way - the forum sometimes objects to html tables, but I haven't found a better way of drawing one here).

Re: Event diary

I should also say that if you are looking to plan your years running, you could do worse than to include:

NHRR's Run of the Month:
which will include the Mid Week League Races:

If you are interested there are the Herts County Championships:

You can also search which lists the road races that have UKA permits. You can search by date, region or distance. This site also has a link to the Trail Running Association if off road is more your thing.

Re: Event diary

Perfect Nick, exactly what I was after. Thanks.

Re: Event diary

Andy and I also did the Svalbard marathon which doesn't appear on the list.

Whoever did Chicago - any tips as to where to stay? I'm in for this year.

Re: Event diary

Hi Drew, thank you for your question. Each of the sections of the club has their own calendar, ie if you want to know about social activities, you find them on the social website etc.

In addition, under training is a google calendar which has all events. Hope that helps. Any feedback would be great.


Re: Event diary

I actually found this list of events helpful, and fortuitous timing as I wanted to enter a flatish autumn 10 k and needed to think about it now, given other stuff I have on and the amount of time I’ll need to train properly for it (it’s not a short race for me at my speed!). I don’t think this all of this information is ever replicated on the Google calendar, as that tends to focus on races done by more than one or two (e.g. runs of the month).
Anyway, I wouldn’t have known about the Luton 10 k otherwise, as it doesn’t appear on Run Britain yet for this year (I agree that seems to be the best online list), although in the end chose the Cambridge town and gown (norminally a charity race and 21st Oct btw, and one I know will be flat, if anybody wants join James and me for that).

Re: Event diary

some good ones to consider if you are looking for a PB:

Leeds Abbey Dash 10k - fast and flat, definitely PB potential (5th November)
Wilne 10K - fast 10K just outside Derby (autumn I think)
Great East Anglian Run (GEAR 10K) - you guessed it! another fast one! early in the year.
Perkins Great Eastern Run - fast and flat half marathon in Peterborough, again, good for a PB (the week after Standalone).

Like Nick says, once you have put all the MWL races and all the XC races in your diary, along with ROTM races, you may find it difficult to fit in anything else!

I think some of us are also looking to do the Watford open graded track meets in the summer, normally on a Wednesday evening, and don't forget the Golden Stag Mile (Finsbury Park) which was a great night out last year....

Re: Event diary

Thanks for this information. It was a question that i kept meaning to raise, as i see many posts after a race i was not aware of.
@astrid -I think the link under training is broken. In fact the only headings on the home page that link to a sub page is the 1) About 2)forum and 3) social. I get nothing else for the rest.
I have been trying for a few days!

Re: Event diary

They don’t go to a sub page, they display drop downs, but I’ve found them funny on some (mobile) browsers. I think Astrid is referring to

Re: Event diary

Great Table. Thanks. Might be worth pinning to the top of the forum?

Re: Event diary


Great info here, as i'm still kind of new to running so i am still learning of new events.

I've just booked up the Cambridge T&G 10K (no idea that existed but looks good)
Good to see other NHRR people there.

couple more runs i know about (in addition to the really useful list Mark put up, Great North Eastern Peterborough HM is Brilliant!)

Farnborough Winter HM (January - fast & flat - love this one)
Hastings HM / Bath HM -
(if you really like your hills!) usually on the same sunday (3rd week of march - i usually do Hastings as the support from the locals is great)
Welwyn HM (again march - but delayed this year to sept)
Stevenage HM (November)
Knebworth House HM (November - lovely scenery - lousy organisation)
