The Hercules Wimbledon Young Athletes Open Meeting will be held at Wimbledon Park Stadium on 6th April 2014. Now in its thirty-third year, the meeting includes events from Under-11 to Under-20. Under-20 men and women also have the rare opportunity to test themselves over the mile distance, in the Dave Clarke Mile (separate races for both men and women), for which there is a first prize of £100 for each gender. One of Britain’s finest cross country runners (representing GB eleven times), and the current Club Chairman, Dave is also one of Hercules Wimbledon AC’s best known track athletes, who set his best time of 3:56.95 for the mile at Crystal Palace in 1982.
The closing date for entries is Friday, 14th March 2014.
