HAC has only 2 club places on offer to club members for the London Marathon on the 24th April 2016.
If you are a fully paid up club member and have been for at least 1 year, have a VLM rejection slip for next year’s race, not previously won a club place in the last 3 years and want to do the marathon please email me, Martin Bateman at firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Thursday 29th October 2015.
Places will be awarded again this year by ballot and the draw/s will be at the clubhouse on a date to be decided. Once all applications are in I will decide, in my role as club competitions committee chairman, the exact ballot process. It will either be 1 straight draw or 2 draws with the first “seeded” draw for one of the places then all names going into the second ballot for the remaining place. Anyone applying will need to pay the entry costs themselves if drawn from the ballot. With only 2 places on offer it is difficult to please everyone with the system. These places are offered by VLM as a kind of reward to clubs so in turn the seeded applicants will be those that have put a lot into aspects of management and organisation of HAC.

It was another busy weekend for our senior and veteran athletes that represented the club at the Women’s national 4 stage road relays and at the Middlesex 10K road champs.
For the first time, in a very long while, or possibly ever, Hillingdon AC finished 2 teams at the Women’s national 4 stage road relays, in Sutton Coldfield on Saturday 3rd October. Zoe Dobbs V45, Lynn Hyde V40, Karen O’Rouke V50 and Ciara Williams SW who all competed at the Southern’s 2 weeks previous were joined by Eva Mack SW, Mel Spencer V35 and Hannah Wells, U23.
Over the 4.35km undulating parkland course on a grey and chilly day the A team of Eva 16.06, Hannah, 17.26, Ciara, 17.42 and Lynn, 18.50 put in a sterling effort to claim 44th from 68 teams that finished. Their combinded time of 1:10.04 was over 2 minutes faster than our A team last year. For the B team Zoe, 19.04, Karen, 19.05, Mel, 19.59 and Hannah, who filled in for a withdrawal, 18.55 did everyone proud to finish 60th against some strong competition.

When someone suffers a cardiac arrest, the heart stops, blood is no longer being pumped around their body and they are clinically dead. The longer they go without emergency life-support, the harder it is to restart their heart. That’s where you can make a difference. An Automated Electronic Defibrillator (AED) is a machine used to give an electric shock to restart a person’s heart when they are in cardiac arrest.
The club committee have agreed to purchase an AED for the clubhouse in Bury Street, ( one is already provided at the track in Uxbridge) however it is essential to have people on site who are willing to be trained in its use. London Ambulance Service provides a three hour Emergency Life Support (ELS) training course for up to 12 people held at our premises on an evening or weekend. This is their recommended course for people who are not medical practitioners or from a health care background. It teaches the basic elements needed to save a life in an emergency.
The following subjects are covered: Chain of survival concept, assessment of a collapsed casualty, recovery position, CPR, management of heart attack, management of major bleeding, management of adult choking and defibrillator training. The training course is valid for one year.
To register your interest in being trained please see David Smith, Club Chairman or contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
