Details from Hercules Wimbledon AC:

 

As always we look forward to seeing athletes for our annual curtain raiser to the track and field season - this year celebrating 35 years!

 

New for this year: by popular request we are adding the 400m to the timetable (for U15s upwards).

 

As usual the meeting includes events from U11 to U20. U20 men and women also have the rare opportunity to test themselves over the mile distance, in the Dave Clarke Mile (separate races for both men and women), for which there are cash prizes for the first three places. One of Britain's finest cross country runners (who represented GB eleven times), and the current Club Chairman, Dave also made his mark on the track, setting his best time of 3:56.95 for the mile at Crystal Palace in 1982.

 

The closing date for entries is 8pm on Wednesday, 23rd March.

 

Athletes are encouraged to enter and pay online via www.herculeswimbledonac.org.uk (though you can also download a printable form). The timetable can be viewed there too.
