Fun Run 2023
One of the healthiest days of the year is back! (Back again in fact, following postponement in September...and March!)
Third. Time. Lucky!
The Harris Primary East Dulwich Fun Run 2023 will be held on Sunday 21st of May, with the starting pistol firing at 11am.
No better way to foster our amazing Harris community than with some friendly competition - right?!
