Demand for places for the Harvel 5, remains staggering. Last year we sold out in under 12 hours!!!!
ENTRIES WILL OPEN ON SUNDAY MARCH 3RD 2019 (at noon).
On entering the Harvel 5 (on March 3rd 2019) you will see the following conditions of entry:
*PLEASE READ THIS INFORMATION to ensure that you agree to our terms before entering*.
1. There is no waiting list for this event
2. It is not possible at any time to defer your entry to the following year.
3. It is not possible at any time for competitors to transfer (swap names).
We can no longer allow runners to defer (to 2020’s race) nor swap their place to another runner, for 2019’s race.
This decision is based upon the fact that we were simply overwhelmed with requests to defer or swap places, many of which were in the week leading up to race day. Whilst in previous years we have worked with (literally hundreds) of runners, to allow them to defer their places, or swap them to another runner, the volumes have made this approach no longer sustainable.
Thanks for your interest, your patience and for helping to make the Harvel 5 the superb event that it is.

Think of it as a ‘well organised, club based 5 mile race, collided with a English country village fete, and a industrial tanker full of beer’ and you will pretty much have described our race.
Our faster runners will complete the course in around 25 minutes, whereas we know that our event also attracts newer, less speedy runners. We encourage all abilities
Run partly on (partially closed) roads, plus through the Trotiscliffe Country park, and set on the edge of the North Downs, it is a simply beautiful event.

We look forward to seeing you on the day...Till then
