Summer Series 2017

This year’s Summer Series events have already commenced so apologies for the delay in posting the list on the website. There are still plenty of races to enter; as normal the best 8 races from 15 will count to your total score for the Series. Don’t forget to register as a Hillingdon AC athlete to ensure you earn your points. The first HAC athlete will earn 20 points, second place 19 and so on. There are bonus points available as well, see the attached link for the Scoring Rules.
Myself (Zoe Dobbs) and Andy Wood will be adding up the points throughout the season and we will do our best to post the league tables after each race.

Martin Bateman has selected the following races for this year’s Summer Series along with some suggestions from the members for their favourites.

As per usual the club has 6 men’s and 6 Women’s places for the Vitality London 10K and British Champs on Monday 29th May 2017. Paul Leppard and Melanie Helen Spencer as team managers will choose our squads based on performance and committment to competing in club races in the past year and should be a fully paid up member for the 2017/18 year.

Those that fall into this category and want to do the event should contact Elaine and your team manager ASAP so that you free up a club place for someone else which will mean we get more than 6 of each places. Our deadline for entries in 30th April 2017.

Time to join for 2017/18

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 s.hirons@ucl.ac.uk

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.
