Dates and venues for the Track & Field competition season 2018 have now been confirmed. In the next few weeks we will come to the end of the winter programme of competition with the Inter-Counties XC this coming weekend (10th March) and the English Schools XC the following weekend (17th March). The Harriers compete at Track and Field as part of the composite team with our partners Yeovil Olympiads. Read on for more details of competition opportunities
This month, March, the Monday junior training will be more geared to a broad range of track & field events and all Harriers age 11 and upwards should start to plan their track and field season with coaches prior to contacting the age group managers to advise on their availability and preferred events.
All age groups of both sexes can compete at the South West League fixtures. U17s, u20s and seniors of both sexes can compete at the Southern League fixtures; and u20 men and senior men can compete at the British League fixtures (with u17s in exceptional circumstances).
