Please note that there is NO Junior Championship fixture at Gill Garth on Wednesday (14th June).  This should have been removed from the fixture list some time ago but wasn’t – my apologies.  The BOFRA fixture at Kirkby on 24th June will replace it on the list (see details below).

 

Well done to all those juniors that took part in the the races at Rossendale or at Lowgill Sports.  Reports and results can be see under Latest News

 

FORTHCOMING JUNIOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP RACES

These races have now been added to our Junior Club Championships.  Please note that the venue is Kirby-in-Furness (not Kirkby anywhere else).  Race details can be found here http://www.bofra.org.uk/assets/racepages/kirkby/kirkby.php

This is a great location and event and has been well supported by our juniors in the past.

Welcome to the Settle Harriers Juniors website !

 

Settle Harriers aim to provide opportunities for young runners in the area to learn about and participate in training and racing in the disciplines of cross-country and fell running. The Club is located in the centre of the finest natural scenery and training country to be found anywhere. Regular training and racing events are organised all year round open to all junior club members.

Junior training takes place on Tuesdays (term-time only) from 5.30pm – 6.45pm and our base is Eshtons Pavilion, Raines Road, Giggleswick, next to Giggleswick School’s all weather pitch.  During the winter months, sessions are held either on the all weather pitch (younger athletes) or on the fields close by.  Older juniors  may venture a bit further afield.

Our coaches are all qualified to at least UK Athletics Level 2 and we also have a large number of assistant coaches qualified to Level 1.  All these are also DBS checked.  Parents are welcome to help out at training sessions – we are always looking for volunteers.

We do require that potential new members register with us first as we operate a waiting list system due to the popularity of these training sessions.  To register your interest look at the information under the MEMBERSHIP menu. Our annual junior subscription is £10 and we also charge termly session fees which equate to £1 per session but payable at the start of each term.

Our juniors have their own junior club championship – a series of races that run from January until October.  They also compete in local leagues such as the Kendal Winter League (Jan – March) and West Yorkshire Cross-Country League (Oct – Dec).   See the RACES menu on this website for more information.
