Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014


Welcome to the Junior Section of Strathearn Harriers.

We aim to provide a friendly, encouraging and fun environment for children to develop their potential as young athletes. Our goals are to develop a love of athletics and running, to enable each athlete to improve their performance and encourage competition at a level appropriate to each athlete’s ability and stage of development.

The Junior section welcomes children from 9 to 18 years of age. We train twice a week at 6.00 pm on Tuesday and 5.30 on Thursdays. Our usual meeting place is Taylor Park / Dallerie (Morrison’s Academy’s playing fields) although we also use facilities at the Crieff Community Campus, the George Duncan Track in Perth and the paths and trails round about Crieff and, from time-to-time, Comrie.

We aim to give children a variety of experiences in athletics but with a primary focus on running disciplines. We compete in the East District Cross Country League in the winter and also a wide variety of road, trail and hill races throughout the year. There are also opportunities at track and field events such as Open Graded Track Meetings at Grangemouth, Dunfermline and Livingston and our very own annual intra-club Track Championships at Dallerie.

For more information or if your child is interested in joining please email or contact one of the coaching team.
