Herne Hill Harriers launch their first Primary Athletics Academy

Herne Hill Harriers launched their first Primary Athletics Academy in May, inviting pupils and PE teachers from schools within walking distance to Tooting Bec track, to participate in an afternoon of athletics activities.   

The KS2 children were coached by an expert team of Herne Hill Harriers coaches and athletes, including former Olympic long jumper Jade Johnson, and experienced sprint and endurance running, shot put, javelin and long jump training.  

Through this initiative the club hopes to reach our most local children and provide stepping stones to future involvement with the club.  We anticipate another event in the Autumn term, and if your school is interested in taking part please email: sarahjguest@yahoo.co.uk
