Hercules Wimbledon YA Open 2019

Posted by Membership Secretary on 8 February 2019

This is just to let you know that entries for the annual Young Athletes Meeting on April 7th at Wimbledon Park are open at: https://entries.opentrack.run/2019/hercopen/


We have changed the format this year and the meeting will be Open Graded. Instead of separate track and field events for each age group and gender as in the past, athletes will be seeded into races (where the rules allow) according to pb. We hope this will make for keener competition as well as closing up gaps in the timetable (the first events will now be 12 noon). It also allows U13s to take part in all the field events, where previously they were limited to the long jump and shot put, and the number of trials in field events will be increased from four to six.


The long jump, which always attracts the highest entries, will be split into two, with the first event for athletes with a pb below 4 metres, and the later event for athletes whose pb is over 4 metres. 


We have also returned to the original age range of U11-U17, as uptake for the U20 age group introduced a few years ago has been patchy, apart from entries for the Dave Clarke Mile. We are not losing this event, however. The D C Mile will now be incorporated in our May 1st 100m and 1500m Open Meeting, and so will be open to seniors as well as U20s who meet the entry standard. More details of this meeting will follow later.
