How it works

 

Solo runners and teams compete from midday on Saturday through to midday on Sunday. The winner in each category completes the most miles within this time period. 

 

Everyone from experienced ultra runners to fun runners can take part, whilst raising money for HARP - Southend's Homeless Charity

The suggested fundraising target is £50 per person, for team targets, simply multiply this amount by the number of people in your team e.g. if you are a team of three, your team fundraising target will be £150, it would be £350 for a team of seven etc. 

What you get

All runners receive a FREE HARP24 2022 T-shirt in their specified size, a medal, a goodie bag, and of course our eternal gratitude for supporting HARP so we can help more local people to overcome homelessness.

 

You will also set up an online fundraising page as part of your registration process. We will be providing fundraising tips and ideas over the coming months to help you make a difference to the lives of local homeless people in and around Southend.

Mixed teams which do not meet this ratio are welcome to participate, but will not qualify for a winners trophy.

 

The event is a relay race, so teams must complete consecutive laps of the course throughout the 24 hour period. You may take breaks as you choose, however only one runner from each team may be running on the course at any one time for it to count to your team's total mileage. If more than one runner goes out with a team mate for company, they must take care not to cross the chip timing sensors.

Tracking Your Mileage

 

Chipped timing is provided on the day. You will receive your chip or team chips in your goody bag at registration. These must then be fastened to your running shoes and you must cross the chip timing sensors in the timing tent at the start and end of each lap. 

Start and Finish Times

 

The race starts at 12pm on Saturday 18th June and runners may set off for final laps by the 11:59:59 on Sunday 19th June, as long as the final lap is completed by 1pm it will count towards your total. 

Results

The HARP24 2022 results will be published on the website by Monday 20th June 2022. We will notify all participants when the results are available via email. 

Fundraising

HARP24 is organised by HARP, Southend's homeless charity, and we rely heavily on donations and fundraising in order to carry out our work with local people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

 

The suggested fundraising target is £50 per person, for team targets, simply multiply this amount by the number of people in your team e.g. if you are a team of three, your team fundraising target will be £150, it would be £350 for a team of seven etc.
