Not all athletics in the UK is organised by clubs or individuals.
Helsby High School, which many Harriers attend, achieved the notable success of getting their Junior Girls team to the national final of the ESAA English Schools Track & Field Cup. The school team finished 8th overall on the day, after a long trip down to Chelmsford for the final.
This weekend, one of the most prestigious junior athletic competitions in the country takes places at Gateshead this weekend. With a qualification system similar to the Olympics, needing athletes to achieve qualifying times, heights and distances, the Aviva ESAA English Schools' 82nd Track & Field Championships is a high quality competition, and is also being shown on Sky Sports TV over the weekend.
Several former Harriers will be taking part, and even if you don't know anyone taking part it is a great showcase for young athletics which current Harriers can aspire to!
