Announcing: Platform Year Five!

It’s back! Our annual event returns to celebrate Harry’s fifth year returning to Hogwarts!

Our Next Charity Partner: RODS Racing!

Hogwarts Running Club has definitely done #somuchgood over the years.

This time we’re not just going to change lives; we’re literally going to save lives. Hogwarts Running Club is humbled to announce the charity partner for this event is RODS: Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome! Their mission is simple: they promote the adoption of orphans […]

Royal 10k Run Day

August 1: Our run date** for the Royal 10k, and a day of infamy in the fandom.
