Although Highgate Harriers these days are amongst the best road & cross-country clubs in Great Britain, their Highgate Harriers/Mornington Chasers composite Track& Field team is in a more modest position in Division 3 North of the Southern League but, don't be put off supporting them because they appear to be doing better than last year already and look like holding their own in the 2nd Match of the Southern League to be held at Parliament Hill, on the 15th of June.  

Already this year they came 2nd of six teams at Watford on the 18th of May. Watford lead with 338 match points, Highgate Harriers/Morni8ngton Chasers are on 277 and in 3rd place, at present are Barnet & District AC  with 255 match points.
