Our Clubhouse team have been busy coming up with more social events, mainly centred around food and being silly.

To celebrate the men’s performance in the final of the Vet’s League on 30th September the clubhouse team are guaging interest in Fish and Chips afterwards. The coach should be returning at roughly 8:30pm. If you want Fish and Chips please let a member of clubhouse team know so they know if enough people want to eat.

Up next is the return of Games and Pizza night after the first Met League fixture at Claybury on Saturday 13th October. Will Splat the Rat make a reappearance? There is also a rumour of Twister! Please sign up on the Facebook event page or on the sheet at the Clubhouse so the team have an idea of numbers for food.

There will be a social event after each Met League, so look out for more.

Lastly (for now), the most anticipated event of the year – The HAC New Years Eve Party. This year’s theme is The Wild West, be prepared for a shooting alley, finding who is HACs Most Wanted and a Tequila Tipi. Tickets will be available soon. Last year sold out so get your ticket quick.

Hillingdon A.C. Boys Fourth in Alder Valley League Trophy

Sunday 2nd September was the last Alder Valley boys competition of the season, reports Diane Gibbons. It was at Reading on a very hot day.

We had out the largest number of boys this season with the u11 boys almost at 20 which is going to be great for the future.

The boys had been competing well over the previous 4 events and we were in 3rd before the final. This meant we were in the Trophy final.

There was some great performances by all of the age groups but we were up against some really strong teams and eventually finished fourth.

Thanks must go to all of the boys who have competed over the summer, their parents for supporting them and us , the officials who do a great job, our coaches who give hours of their time to support our athletes and lastly the team managers whose job is to try and fill all of the events with our strongest athletes.

Think we did a great job this year !

Hillingdon A.C. Junior Girls win Alder Valley League Plate

On Saturday 1st September the girls competed in the finals for the Alder Valley, reports Courtney Clarke. Before the competition I had to find the safe place I put the Plate we won last year. After many hours I can confirm that it was not in my house. So Shirl was right (that is disappointing).

Next stop was the clubhouse. There it was in the cabinet. No keys!!! I drag poor Stefan down because he knows where the keys are (errrrr no he doesn’t). So we call Zoe Dobbs. I leave triumphant with the plate.
Now the day begins!!

So I arrived on Saturday for the finals of the Alder Valley league.

The girls were fantastic and earned the most points we’ve had all season to win the plate back again for the second year on the trot. Wish I had not spent so long trying to find it!

Meryl Dickinson was team manager of Alder valley girls obviously with my help but I actually didn’t have to do any work because Meryl did everything. Even more impressive we actually had six or seven of our best athletes competing at the inter Counties today.

Congratulations Hillingdon Athletics Club Juniors Girls.


This year’s competition will take place on Tuesday 4th September at 7pm on the
normal course at Rochester Road in Northwood Hills, opposite Haydon School.

Please register at the clubhouse by 6.30pm or be at Rochester Road by 6.50pm.

You compete entirely at your own risk.

All Club members are welcome to run, with a £3 fee for any non-Club members.

This year there will be a maximum of four competitions, with the exact make-up formulated after the entries close at 6.50pm:

Men – Maximum of 10 rounds
Women (subject to change) – Maximum of 8 rounds
Over 40 Men (subject to change) – Maximum of 8 rounds
Plate (for those knocked out in early stages of the other three competitions) –  Maximum of five rounds

How does it work?

All the runners in each competition start together and run up the hill (just under 300m in length). The last one to the top is eliminated (sometimes more depending on number of entries).

The remainder jog back down again and then repeat the run up the hill. Once again, the last one to the top is eliminated (sometimes more depending on number of entries).

This is repeated until only one runner is left, who is the winner of the competition.
So that everyone gets more than one run, halfway through the event everyone who has been eliminated to that point in the three main competitions can enter the Plate competition.

Further details if required from Gavin Collett

Ladies Vets Track & Field Season 2018

Another SCVAC season ended this month, for the Hillingdon Ladies vets team in the Mid-London Division, reports Team Manager Maria Hernandez-Humm.  We had fierce competition from Herne Hill (the winners) and Serpentine, although we had equal match points with Serpentine, they beat us on event points, so we came 3rd overall out of 6 teams. Unusually so, we had fine weather for all the fixtures, two at Battersea and two at Perivale,  Unfortunately we were unable to have a fixture at Uxbridge due to cage being condemned.
The first fixture was on 4th May at Battersea in which we came third.  The 100m sprinters were in unison and all came 2nd in their races across, the age categories.  Maria Hernandez-Humm won the long jump in the W50 age group and the 400m relay team came a very close second behind Serpentine. We did have some gaps in the team for some of the W50 & W60 events.  Next up was Perivale on 4th June.  A full team this time with PB’s for Elisa Morse in the 3k shot put, Caroline Ford in the triple jump and Lynn Hyde in the 800m, putting us in 2nd position. Third fixture again at Battersea and third position.  Sharon Dooley won the W35A 100m and Lesley Conway won in the 400m & 1500m for the W60.   PB’s were achieved for Lorraine Kingston in the W35B 100m and Sharon Talbot in the 600 javelin.  Our final event was again at Perivale on 1st August.  We had a full squad and the team came 2nd at this fixture. Hendricak White came 1st in the W60 100m, Elisa Morse won the W50 in the hammer and got a PB to boot and Lesely Conway won with a clean sweep in the 800m, 3000m & long jump for the W60. A PB was also achieved in Javelin 500 for Cathy Girvan W60.
I would like to thank each and every one of the ladies who competed for Hillingdon AC.  You are a great team and for those that were unable to compete due to injury, get fit and well and see you in 2019 too.
