Get set for an athletic fest of activity during our Minithon competitions. This event is ideal for those who have a passion for a range of athletic disciplines. It's a great opportunity to showcase their skills and compete at their best.

What is the Minithon

We like to think of the Minthon as a mini Olympics and as a place where children can come and compete in athletics and have fun at the same time. Over the years, the Minithon has been a place where children have enjoyed their first taste of athletics. It's also been the breeding ground of Olympic stars and some of the athletes you see on TV today whom first started competing in this very place. More importantly than that, those who participate often stay in the sport for years to come and be part of the Athletics Community.

How the competition works

Step 1 - book your childs place when they open online

Step 2 - on the day of the competition, pick up your number bib and chose three events that you'd like to compete in out of the following:

  • 60m Hurdles (excluding Year 3)

  • 60m

  • 200m

  • 600m

  • Long Jump

  • Javelin

  • Shot Put

  • High Jump (Year 6 and Year 7 only)

Step 3 - get ready to race your peers and have fun!

Your best performances on the day will then be ranked against all the others in your age group (split between girls and boys) and medals will be awarded as follows:

  • 1st 10       places = Gold

  • 2nd 10       places = Silver

  • All remaining = Bronze

What to bring

Being comfortable is key to having a good day. We suggest wearing a comfortable pair of trainers (with laces) or spikes on your feet and for clothing; shorts and tshirt are recommended whilst competing and a tracksuit top and bottoms to wear between events. Please bring enough food and water with you as well, though we don’t recommend your child eats too much between or before your events.
