The Clubs under 13 athletes were in action on Monday evening at St Albans. The U13 Challenge is a Herts Inter Club competition which encourages young athletes to compete in their best event and try their hand at something different, at the same time giving County Team Managers their first glimpse of the talent they may be selecting in future years.
There were some new U13 athletes competing in Club colours for the first time and some seasoned campaigners in the team.
