Junior Ilkley Harriers, established 2003

Click for Clubmark info

At JIH we offer a full programme of running related activities to individuals up until the end of Year 13. U16 must be members of JIH (annual membership of £5) and over 16's must be members of Ilkley Harriers (annual membership £12). In either case a newcomer may attend 2 sessions before joining.

Any individual wishing to attend junior led training sessions (see below) must be a FIRST CLAIM member of Junior Ilkley Harriers/Ilkley Harriers. Family membership of Ilkley Harriers does NOT include children who are U16.

There is a general programme which caters for everyone - all abilities and newcomers to athletics. In addition there is a more specific programme only available to those juniors who are more serious about their athletics and wish to compete for Ilkley. Post 16's have the freedom to 'mix & match' senior/junior training sessions but the appropriate parental forms must be provided.

The majority of our sessions now have waiting lists so please do not just turn up on the night to any session => contact shirley beforehand to check that its OK first (shirley@ilkleyharriers.org.uk).
