Sirius Half Marathon


Sirius Half Marathon


Hogwarts Running Club is pleased to present our fourth event of 2017:

The Sirius Half Marathon!

Our fourth event of 2017 celebrates one of the most beloved characters from the wizarding world: Sirius Black! A devoted friend, loving godfather and talented wizard, Sirius rejected pure-blood mania and chose to do what was right. Your registration includes this awesome 3" medal, custom sublimated ribbon, and your own personalized digital bib!

We are speaking for veterans who can't speak for themselves. We are honored to announce our charity partner for this event is Mission K9 Rescue. MK9R's mission is to rescue, reunite, re-home, rehabilitate and repair any retired working dog that has served mankind in some capacity. They believe these hero Working Dogs have earned and deserve a good retirement, a loving home and lifelong care. They provide retiring working dog heroes with transport, adoption facilitation, rehoming, financial assistance for life threatening medical situations and end of life benefits which are currently lacking when these dogs retire after serving their country and their communities. Please visit to learn more.

What better way to remember Sirius than a shirt with all of his wise words! The shirts feature Sirius in his animagus form, Padfoot, and many of Sirius' best quotes. All proceeds from the event shirts will also go to Mission K9 Rescue. You can get your shirt at:

The suggested run date for this event is Sunday, June 18th. The anniversary of the Battle of Department of Mysteries and the day we lost Sirius. Remember, this is only a fun suggestion. You are welcome to complete your half-marathon whenever you want!

Registration closes at midnight on June 18th (or early morning on June 19th depending on your Time Zone) and all of the medals will be mailed out on June 26th.
