Summer League

Every year, between June and August, Queen's Park Harriers join 8 like-minded community based running clubs based throughout London, for a series of 5 mile and 10 kilometre senior races, junior races and relays.

Runners score points both individually and for their clubs, with bonus points based on your age.  We could try explaining the scoring, but it wouldn't make sense - and it doesn't really matter - anyone can score points, regardless of ability, and everyone is welcomed and celebrated.

The mixed relays are a massive highlight, where the younger and older runners have the opportunity to score bonus points for their clubs, resulting in amazing teams where 8 year olds run alongside and against 70 year olds.

Think parkrun, crossed with a summer fete, but with medals, a shield, local pride at stake, and cake - lots of cake.
