2017 has been a record-breaking year for athletics in the UK and by getting involved in Team Personal Best you can be part of it. From May to September all over the country clubs are celebrating a memorable summer of Athletics by delivering a nationwide programme of athletics-themed events.
Exeter Harriers are keen to be part of this initiative and encourage Parents to take an active interest in the athletic disciplines coached at the club. We’ve arranged a “taster” Quadkids Competition over 2 training nights on 12th and 14th September 2017 which will be Fun for the Athletes and Fun for the Parents!
We need all parents to help and there is a job for everyone.
