Competition

Competition Opportunities

The Club pays for entry to four Track & Field Leagues each year, covering different abilities and Age Groups. These are:

Mid Lancs T & F League


This local league provides an opportunity for competition for all ages except Under 11’s. This is not a selected league, but numbers wishing to compete for the club have grown considerably. As a result competition opportunities in certain events and age groups have to be rationed to ensure fairness. The League insists, rightly, that in order to compete,  you have to be a fully paid up member of Preston Harriers and therefore have an England Athletics affiliation number. You should always be prepared to take your EA card to all of the fixtures if you are competing.

UK Youth Development League Lower (LYDL)


This is a National League for U13 and U15 athletes. Harriers are in the Northern Premier Division. Participation is by the team manager’s selection, based on recorded performances.

UK Youth Development League Upper (UYDL)


This is a National League for U17 and U20 athletes. Harriers are in the Northern Premier Division. Participation is by the team manager’s selection, based on recorded performances.

Northern Athletics Senior League


This league is for Seniors, although U17’s and Juniors (U20’s) are also eligible. Participation is by selection by the men’s and women’s team managers, based on age and performance.

Currently Preston Harriers are in the following divisions:

Northern Athletics Senior League    

Division 1
Upper Youth Development League    

West 1
Lower Youth Development League    

Premier 1
Mid Lancs League Men    

Division 1
Mid Lancs League Women    

Division 1

In addition there are Open Meetings, Sportshall Meetings and, for those aged 11 and over, County and Regional Championship meetings which you must enter (and pay for) as an individual, normally using forms available online or from your coaches.

Club Track & Field Championship


The Club Track & Field Championships take place over a weekend in early September, at UCLAN Sports Centre.
The 2019 event is on 14/15 September, except the 3000m which will be held on Thur 12th Sept at 7.30pm.
