Press Officer Plea


Chris Elsley our press officer makes a plea that you let us know about races you run in. He can normally pick up details of local races but if you go off to far flung corners of the UK or even further afield he won't be able to find out about your runs. He particularly would like to know about races in which Harriers have won a prize or a catagory. Send them to


He checks the race reports on this site as well so you can send race reports to us and they will be posted on the race reports page. It doesn't matter if we have more than one report, its better than none.
