This year’s Winter Presentation evening will take place on Sunday 23rd April following the London Marathon. Come along and enjoy an evening of celebration with fellow club members, as the winter season’s awards are announced.

The clubhouse and bar will be open from 6pm with the awards ceremony from 7.30pm.
The club house will be open on Saturday afternoon for anyone who would like to watch the rugby. We are stocking up on Guinness and English ales and there may even be a bottle of Prosecco or two for the ladies to enjoy. Look forward to seeing you there.
2017/18 Membership form is now open here.
The new membership year is now upon us and the membership form is now open. It is important that membership forms are completed ASAP if you want to be a member this year and compete, be coached, use club equipment and facilities at the Ruislip clubhouse. Officials, coaches and life members also need to be complete this form. It is particularly important that if you want to compete you and/or a family member complete the form by the 1st April so you and/or a family member can be registered with England Athletics. The membership Secretary this year will be doing batches of registrations monthly so if the 1st of April deadline is missed it is likely that it could be mid May onwards before the next batch of athletes will be permitted to compete in club fixtures etc. If you want to join now but are unable to make a payment at this stage please contact Steve Hirons at email@example.com
All questions about memberships should be directed to Steve Hirons or to Alison Alford if it is regarding junior members.
The HAC membership team wish you a successful and enjoyable 2017/18 membership year.

We are still 10 marshals short for this Sundays Finchley 20. As we have over 200 adult members it shouldn’t be as difficult to get marshals as it is proving. If you haven’t volunteered yet please consider doing so as you will be helping YOUR club and ensuring YOUR subs remain at around £1 a week. You will also have a great fun and have a good feeling that you have given something back. No excuses!
After 11 scoring fixtures starting with the Claybury Met League event in October the winter points competition came to a conclusion with the National Cross Country championships at Nottingham at the end of February. Going into the final event much remained to be concluded with several athletes in a position to pick up change of cash prizes on offer in both tables.
In the Women’s competition leader Ciara Williams was not starting at Nottingham meaning she could end up in a tie with Hannah Wells if she was first Hillingdon Women home. In the end Hannah was our second women home at Nottingham behind the impressive top 50 national finish from Gemma Barry.
This moved Gemma up to 4th finisher overall in the points table just outside the prizes but Hannah moved into 2nd passing Melanie Spencer who also did not compete at Nottingham. Melanie had led the competition most of the season and only 4 weeks before she had an 11 point lead after the Southern at Parliament Hill.
Final points:- Ciara 122, Hannah 121, Melanie 120, Gemma 118
In the Men’s competition having scored maximum points in the first 10 fixtures and guaranteed top spot Andy Torrance turned down the challenge of Nottingham. It was the most challenging cross country course of the season and leaves many to wonder did he have it in him for a Grand slam.
Standing on the start line and looking at those around him Graham Wood knew he only had to finish as in all 10 previous events to maintain 2nd place, held since the met league at Stevenage. The spot for 3rd ended in a tie as a result of John Bignall picking up a point on Rob Thompson he may not had Andy run.
Final points :- Andy 150, Graham 143, John 140, Rob 140
A final acknowledgement to Paul Leppard and Curtis Altman as the only athletes male or female apart from Graham Wood who completed all 11 events.
Club prizes will be handed out at the Winter presentation evening on 23rd April after the London Marathon details to follow.
There is still a need for more marshals for the Finchley 20 on Sunday 12th. Please contact Maria at firstname.lastname@example.org to put yourself on the list.
