Track and Field competitions are generally in the summer, although there are indoor competitions in the winter too. There is a growing interest in Heaton Harriers for track and field and the club competes in two summer leagues.
This is an all age (seniors, 15th year onwards) club competition, where clubs compete in divisions and can enter 2 people in each event. (all track distances, including hurdles and steeplechase, all throws, including hammer, long, triple and highjump.)
North East Masters Athletics Association (Vets Track and Field League)

It is both an individual and team competition, with the top 3 scorers in each age group accruing points for the team.
