Hopefully you are all aware that the Calderglen Harriers are hosting their annual trail race on Friday 28th June 2013 at Calderglen Country Park. There are 2 races for the young athletes; the 1k for athletes born after 1/9/2003 and the 3k for athletes born between 1/9/1997 and 31/8/2003. There are also 5k and 10k races for anyone born before 31/8/1997.The races are open to anyone so as well as encouraging all young athletes to participate, we would also encourage friends and family to join in too. Entry forms can be downloaded from the Calderglen Harriers website or are available at our Wednesday night training sessions. Please note that entry is FREE to all Calderglen Harriers Young Athletes who are fully paid up members.
Prizes are awarded for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place runners (male and female) in the 1k race and there are prizes for the top 3 under 13 runners and under 15 runners in the 3k (male and female).
In addition to these prizes, and in recognition of the hard work put in by each of our young athletes this year, the Young Athletes section will award Sports Direct vouchers to the 1st male and 1st female young Harriers home in the following age categories*:
1k – 1st male and female
3k – 1st under 11 male and female**

Good luck everyone!
