Gosunder Handicap Trophy – Saturday 12th August

Gosunder Handicap Trophy Race and BBQ 12th August

The traditional Gosunder Handicap Trophy will once again be contested over a 5 mile course in Ruislip Woods on Saturday 12th August. For the first time we will also be incorporating the junior athletes’ training race.
Adults will run two laps of the course, junior athletes will be competing in teams of 2, each running one 2.5 mile lap.

Numbers will be issued at the clubhouse from 3.00pm – 3.40 pm with the first runner starting at 4.00 pm.  Race entry is free for HAC members or £3.00 for non-members.

Afterwards we will be having a BBQ back at the clubhouse and watching the evening session of the world athletics championships including Mo Farah’s final ever track race.

Please enter in advance if possible so that we can work out the handicaps and get an idea of numbers for the BBQ although entries will be available on the day for the less organised of you!

Junior athletes, please let Courtney know if you plan on running.

Middlesex 10km

This year the Middlesex 10k will be held in Victoria Park, Hackney on 1st October starting at 10.30am and using the traditional 3-lap course. Online entries are available at:-  https://www.runbritain.com/RaceDetail.aspx?eventid=7bbf0bc95e6e&raceid=7ebf0ccd5e76 or by post using the entry form available at the clubhouse.

DEVIL TAKES THE HINDMOST 2017

DEVIL TAKES THE HINDMOST 2017
This year’s competition will take place on Tuesday 5th 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 four competitions:
Women Maximum of eight rounds
Over 40 Men Maximum of eight rounds
Under 40 Men Maximum of ten 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

Promotion for Under 13/15 Athletes in the UK Youth Development League

A great track season for our YDL Under 13/15 competitors has resulted in Hillingdon Athletic Club being top of our division and consequently being promoted which is fabulous news, reports Courtney Clarke.

Throughout the three matches (two visits to Battersea and a match at Hillingdon) our team have stepped up producing some great track and field results with PB’s galore.

With some careful selection and ensuring we filled as many events as we could with both an A and B string athlete, we have won every match quite convincingly. In our last match we amassed over 600 points, the most we have ever achieved.

A massive well done to all of the athletes concerned.

This doesn’t just happen without a huge amount of work by our young athletes who have spent time training and working hard showing commitment to their events. Thanks must go to our dedicated and wonderful coaches and officials who we know give up so much of their time. Thanks must also go to the parents who come along and support all of the athletes, as well as the coaches when they need help officiating in the field or on the track.

Next season will be tougher but we must all work and train hard to achieve and let’s see what we do together!
