Juniors

Our junior section is now full so unfortunately we are unable to accept any new applications for junior membership at this time, we will review the situation in 2020. If you are interested in joining the juniors please email newmembers.juniors@heatonharriers.org.uk and reserve a place on the waiting list. As soon as places become available we will contact you.

Heaton Harriers juniors meet at Jesmond Park Academy (previously known as Heaton Manor School) on Wednesdays during school term time from 5.00 – 6.00 p.m.  We cater for athletes from school Year 4 upwards.

Cost: Annual membership is £15, plus £1 per session

The focus of these sessions is on Sportshall Athletics and the development of running, jumping and throwing skills as well as generic movement and coordination. 

We offer the opportunity and encourage our Juniors to represent the club in the North East Harrier League Cross Country, the Heaton Memorial Road Races, internal Heaton Harriers organized races and at other events recommended from time to time.
