We are please to announce the launch of the 2017 Manx Harriers Track and Field League sponsored by Up and Running.
Signing on will take place at the Manx Harriers Clubhouse on Thursday 23 March and Thursday 30 March from 5.30 – 7.30 pm
If you are unable to attend the Signing on Evenings you will have the opportunity to sign on by post. Please fill in the appropriate forms (Manx Harriers Membership Form 2017/2018, Track and Field League Form 2017, Code of Conduct Forms and Parents’ Assistance Form) and a cheque made out to Manx Harriers and post to Jenny Dowling, 2 Ballabridson Park, Ballasalla, Isle of Man IM9 2ES. The fee for the League in 2017 remains unchanged at only £20 if payment is made before 31 March 2017; after this date it will be £25. In a change from last year U17s and senior will be able to take part in the league. The cost per week for Guests will be £3 for paid up Manx Harriers members and £10 for everyone else.
Whilst you may sign on at the 1st competition evening it would be helpful to the organisers and competitors if you could sign on at one of the signing on evenings or post the forms to Jenny beforehand to reduce congestion on race night.
The Track and Field League starts Wednesday 5 April 2017 at 6.15pm at the NSC Athletics Track, and will continue until 19 July 2017 (see dates below). Athletes will compete in age groups in selected track and field events during the six Manx Harriers meetings of the League, with four weeks to count.

To allow the Track and Field League to run smoothly and to time we would ask if parents could assist for at least one evening in the season. You will be asked to do a non technical task like pulling the tape through, raking the sandpit or retrieving the cricket ball, discus or shot putt. You will be working with a qualified judge who will assist you. We will have a chart available and it would be greatly appreciated if you would put your name down for at least one evening in the Season. Please see the letter from Tracey Bell and fill in the chart with the relevant information.
Many thanks, Jenny Dowling
