A short history of the Harwich Half Marathon

Harwich Half Marathon in Essex England started in 1982 and continued until 1991. The early 80's running boom attracted over a thousand runners to the Harwich Half Marathon. Some of those who were enticed to try running back then, are the founders of Harwich Runners and are still involved in the club today.
