QuadKids is the athletics competition format for all children aged 11 & under with each competitor doing a sprint/run/throw and jump. 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 opens 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 via our membership portal.

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 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!
