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!

Thank you for your support.

Marshals – Urgent


It feels like Spring so that’s my cue to get in touch to see if I can rope you in to help marshal the 2018 Harrold Pit Run!

This year’s event is on Saturday 28th April and has much the same format as previous years, i.e. three junior races then the main race. The first of the junior races starts at 1:30pm and the main race is 3:00pm. I need to recruit around 40 marshals to help keep the runners and spectators safe.

I would be very grateful if you could drop me a note back to say if you can help this year. If there’s anything I need to take into consideration (e.g. perhaps you can only help with the junior races as you’re taking part in the main run yourself), do just say. And could you see if you can rope in some friends and family members too? Marshalling remains the very best excuse for not running!

I hope to hear from you soon. With very best wishes,

Harrold Pit Run committee
