The first session of QuadKids for 2022 will be held on Sunday 6th March at the Parliament Hill track.  QuadKids is a fun introduction to athletics for children up to the age of 12.  No previous athletics experience is required and it is not necessary to be a member of Highgate Harriers or any other athletics club. 

 

Time and location

QuadKids is held at the Parliament Hill Track. 

The registration desk will open at 11:30, to pick up participant numbers, and we will kick-off events at 12:00. We aim to finish at 13:30/14:00.   

Events 

At each QuadKids session participants are divided into two groups, under 7 years and 7-12 years, and everyone has an opportunity to participate in 4 events. The events are a sprint, a throw, a jump and a longer run.  

For the under 7 group the sprint is 50 metres and the longer run is 400 meters.  The runs for the older participants are a 75 metre sprint and a 600 metre long run. 

Registration 

Online registration is strongly encouraged and is open now at: https://webcollect.org.uk/highgate 

It is also possible to register on the day at 11:30. If this is your preferred option, it would be very helpful if you could send an email to quadkids@highgateharriers.org.uk with the children’s names and ages so that we have an idea of how many onsite registrations to expect. 

The registration fee is £3. 

Results 

Results are posted on the Quad Kids website http://www.quadkids.org/clubs and they are usually available the next day.  

At the end of each session every participant receives a certificate on which they can fill in their results and then watch their progress from month to month! 

Water and snacks 

Please bring your own water/drinks and snacks.  There is a bottle filler available at the track. =

Observers 

Parents/observers are welcome to attend. We may be looking for volunteers on the day to help with events – thank you in advance for your assistance!

Future dates

Our plan is to hold QuadKids on the first Sunday of the month from March to September so reserve the following dates on your calendar: 6th March, 3rd April, 1st May, 5th June, 3rd July, 7th August, 4th September.  

 

I hope to see you at QuadKids!
