Juniors Track & Field

Our junior members carry on the club tradition of competing in Track & Field competitions. Here are the age-group club records last updated in December 2016.

We provide them with opportunity to represent Harriers and compete in a range of competitive local, regional and national events including both team competitions and individual championships. There are locally-hosted track meetings through the summer and that we encourage our young athletes to take part in the West Yorkshire Athletics League and the York Summer League

As an affiliated club, we compete in the UK Youth Development League (YDL) athletics league promoted by England Athletics. The athletes enjoy mixing with and competing at different track venues against athletes from across the North of England. The format comprises a full day of athletics events for different age groups with two boys and two girls per team per age group event. Further details are available on the YDL Athletics website.
