Junior Athletics Training (13-18 years olds)
Our junior athletes (13 to 18 years) prepare for both schools and club cross country championships over the months of September to January. At the end of January, the focus changes to preparation for Track and Field (T&F) events. Our junior athletes compete in both schools and Club T&F championships. We now have a thriving junior boys and girls section of the Club. Our junior athletes have been very successful in both schools and club competitions.
