Dear Club Members,


The time is upon us to start looking forward to the 2024 Club Championship for Thirsk & Sowerby Harriers. We are giving each member the opportunity to suggest a race they would like to see included in next year’s calendar.


There are a few simple rules/criteria to meet, but otherwise, please feel free to suggest any race (even those currently included races, or races previously part the championship). Not all races can be added immediately, but we do hope to see some new races in the calendar, which will provide a challenge to both long term members and those newer to the club. ONE SUGGESTION PER MEMBER
We are limited to the number of races we can use each year and there will be clashes of dates to consider, however, any races which are suggested and meet the criteria will be added to a “selection pool”, which can then be used as options for future years. Please note that HDSRL and XC events will be automatically included so no need to suggest these!
For the races, we would like events which are:

  • Any distance roughly between 5km (3miles) and half marathon (13.1miles/21km)
  • Local location (roughly within a 1hr drive from Thirsk)
  • Independent Races which would appreciate being well supported by the club entries
  • Large enough event which can accommodate all our runners without compromising others
  • Relatively cost effective
  • Can be Road / Multi-Terrain / Fell
  • Interesting! It could be tough and hilly, fast and flat, scenic and picturesque or good food afterwards…….


If you have a race that you think really should be considered (one choice per member – so make sure it’s a good one!) please click on the button below to submit your suggestion – the form closes on 13th August 2023.




Many Thanks,
