Young Athletes Meeting
Under UKA rules with Photofinish
Each April, Hercules Wimbledon AC kicks off the track and field season with the Young Athletes Open Meeting.
This is one of the largest meetings for young athletes outside of the English Schools Championships with races for Under 11s and an extensive track and field programme for Under 13s-Under 20s.
There is also a rare opportunity for Under 20 men and women to test themselves over the mile distance in the Dave Clarke Mile, with cash prizes for the first three in both the men’s and women’s races. The current Chairman of Hercules Wimbledon AC, Dave Clarke, represented Great Britain eleven times at cross country and is also one of the Club’s best known track athletes, setting his best time of 3:56.95 for the Mile at Crystal Palace in 1982.
