Our membership secretary Steve Hirons has worked extremely hard in the past fortnight to ensure all new members have their England Athletics registrations renewed. Once a renewal is confirmed by EA each athlete should receive an email to that effect. If you are an active athlete and requested EA registration and do NOT receive a confirmation email in the next week or so can you please let Steve know.
Many thanks to Steve for pulling out the stops to get the registrations in.
Massive well done to all our London Marathon runners. Time to put your feet up.

This year’s races will take place on the second Thursday of each month from April to September inclusive.
- 14th April
- 12th May
- 9th June
- 14th July
- 11th August
- 8th September
Register at the clubhouse by 6.30pm for a 6.40pm start. You compete entirely at your own risk.
All Club members are welcome to run, with a £3 fee for any non-Club members.
The measured course starts in Howletts Lane and is two and a half laps of a loop of Breakspear Road, Howletts Lane, Marlborough Avenue & Bury Street. The finish is just past the clubhouse in Bury Street.
Numbers are not worn but are told to competitors on registration and need to be relayed to the recorders at the end of the event.
This is not an official race, so please keep to the pavement whenever possible and beware of road users and pedestrians.
Following each event, there is often hot food available from the licensed bar and also a fun quiz starting at around 8pm for around an hour at a charge of £1 (all money to clubhouse funds).
Please take note of this. UKA and EA are getting tougher this year with athlete registrations. I don’t know what the sanctions are to teams that have non registered athletes taking part in league fixtures but it isn’t worth taking the risk of individuals being DQ’d or teams losing league points because we have non registered athletes taking part this year. Please make sure you are signed up to HAC if you are going to compete in the junior comps, SAL or Vets league this year. This is the EA page http://www.englandathletics.org/clubs–community/club-affiliation/athlete-registration-2016 and this is our membership page if you haven’t signed up yet. http://www.hillingdonac.co.uk/shop/clubmembershippage.html
The date for the 1st Vets fixture of the season is fast approaching and I know some of you still do not know details of the fixtures and who can compete.
If you are a Male/Female age 35 or over and interested in track and field we need you to help the team whether its scoring for the team or as backup and competing as a guest the more options both myself and Maria have the better.
The dates for the 4 fixtures are as follows,
Dates as follows:
Monday 9th May – Battersea – hosted by Serpentine
Monday 6th June – Hillingdon – hosted by Hillingdon
Monday 20th June – Battersea – hosted by Herne Hill Harriers
Wednesday 13th July – Perivale – hosted by ESM.
If you need help with a lift up to Battersea let us no as I am sure cars will be going up from the clubhouse and we can help if possible with a lift for you.
Further information can be found on the Vets team page or you can contact the men’s team manager Jason Steel on email@example.com or ladies team manager Maria Hernandez-Humm on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
A storming victory for HAC as the competition gets blown away.
Well done to the 17 club athletes that braved the wild conditions this morning in the Hillingdon HM & 10K. Both the men’s and women’s team took victory in the team prize in the HM and the pick of the performances were Abdishakur Abudelle’s and James Laing‘s 2nd and 3rd place respectively and Steph Vélez‘s 4th women’s place in the HM. James Burton was our first finisher in the 10k in 4th and Caroline Ford was 18th and 3rd women’s. Thanks to everyone that competed and helped out today. The results are here. http://activetrainingworld.com/…/28/hillingdon_half_marathon The course was a few hundred metres long due to a diversion around a fallen tree and flying metal on Brunel Uni Campus.
This year is the 50th anniversary of Hillingdon AC. One of the events that the committee is planning to celebrate this is a dinner and dance on Saturday 17th September 2016 from 7.30pm till late.
