Harrold Pit Run 2019

Harrold Pit Run will take place on Saturday 15th June.

Yes – June! Allow us to explain…

The Pit Run has historically taken place on a Saturday in mid-to-late April event. In 2019, Easter falls very late. With local schools on holiday from 5th to 23rd April., it became obvious to us that striking with an April Saturday would have a detrimental impact on the monies we could raise for local good causes, with holidays preventing some runners and stall holders from participating and/or preparing.

We consulted wit parish councillors, church representatives, people from local groups such as the Scouts and Harrold Calvados Society, runners, marshals, sponsors, the organisers of other local events, friends, neighbours and more. With Bank Holiday and a school half-term week in May and the Odell Fete on 8th June, the overwhelming consensus is that moving Pit Run to 15th June is the best solution. We hope you agree.

So get the date in your diary and here’s to another successful Pit Run!

Wishing all this year’s Pit Runners the very best

Looking forward to running a stall at this much loved event. Come and have a go at our quiz Hear about all the health benefits nordic walking can bring you Hear about all the great walks there are on your doorstep.

‘Nordic Walking is a very accessible activity and something that can be shared by people of different fitness levels. It’s an ideal activity for people who haven’t exercised for a while or who dislike traditional sports or gym activities. An injured person can use the poles to support and guide, working to improve fitness as part of their rehabilitation. Athletes can use Nordic Walking for cross training and incorporate Nordic running. Community groups find it a sociable way to keep fit. If you’d like to shed a few pounds, then Nordic Walking is an enjoyable way to do this. It’s great for fitness enthusiasts who like to try new things. Whatever your age from 8 to 80+, you’ll probably enjoy discovering the benefits of Nordic Walking that improve your quality of life.
