New athletes are welcome from the age of eight years old, we are based at Mark Hall Sports Centre and train on Mondays (all-ability sport 5:30 pm till 7:30 pm), Tuesdays 6:30 pm till 8:00 pm on track and until 9 pm for older groups and Thursdays 6:30 pm till 9:00pm evenings.
Our club is run entirely by qualified and experienced volunteers from the local community, who give up their free time to promote athletics for young people starting from 8 years old, from Harlow and the surrounding areas.
We are very proud of our club, which boasts international athletes such as Olympian Andrew Osagie, wheelchair athlete Richard Chiassaro who is currently ranked UK no1 in a variety of T54 wheelchair events, Naomi Harryman who has represented U17 England at triple jump internationally, and Shemar Boldiszar, the current U23 European 200m Champion. However, our club is not just about elite athletes, it is a welcoming, friendly environment that provides a sporting platform
for athletes of all abilities.
The club competes in the Southern Athletic League, SAL, and juniors compete in Open competitions.
