Under 11’s race to be added to Harrier league

A welcome boost to young athletics came with the announcement that Harrier League fixtures may host an additional race for the under 11 age category. Traditionally age categories start from under 13 through to senior. Birtley Athletics Club supports young athletes from the age of 8 on our Tuesday and Thursday training nights, and usually there are limited competition opportunities for this age group. This extra race will allow our younger club members to compete in the cross countries from the age of 9. Another change is the adoption of the 3 pack system for the senior ladies age category. This is in response to the ever increasing numbers of senior ladies taking to the field. The 3 pack system is designed to allow athletes to progress from slow, medium and fast pack depending on finishing positions. The packs are ran in a timed handicap. Lets see some more Birtley AC vests on the start line.
