Final Upper YDL win secures promotion for our young athletes

Today our young athletes won the final upper YDL of the season. This made it a clean sweep and winning the league with an impressive margin, reports Courtney Clarke.

As I am sure you can imagine a lot of hard work went in to make this possible not just from the athletes but from all their coaches and the officials. As a result of this outstanding achievement we have now been promoted to Devision 1 A.

I am sure you will all join me in saying a massive well done and thank you for making this season so successful.

Vets track and field final fixture

The last Vets track and field fixture is on Wednesday 1st August at Perivale. This year we have a very real chance of making it to the final for the first time in over 10 years of trying. The area that we have been weakest in this year is the male V60 category. I would ask that any male V60 who is able to compete, at whatever level, makes themselves available to Jason, team manager. He can be contacted on jsteel7@hotmail.com

Scorching Sunday 1st July

As the youngsters were running, jumping and throwing PBs in the YDL match (see below) and the temperatures rose to 30C, various HAC members attended four different races on Sunday 1st July. So, here we go, in alphabetical order.

Grand Canal Marathon Challenge 

Babz Kedge, Debbie Brown and Zoe Dobbs who took on the Grand Canal marathon Challenge in aid of Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals. 26.2 miles along the canal in that heat deserves a huge well done.

Ickenham 5

A local favourite saw seven HAC members compete in the Ickenham 5. Sadly the late announcement of this race meant many members were already committed elsewhere. Hopefully we will be back in force next year!

Congratulations to Gemma Barry and Kathy Carruthers who finished 2nd and 3rd ladies respectively.

Well done to all who competed and welcome aboard to Bradley Birch who finished in an impressive 4th position in his inaugural race for HAC.

Regents Park 10km

Further afield eight HAC members enjoyed a sunny 10km in Regents Park. Results can be found here http://racetecresults.com/results.aspx?CId=16586&RId=258

Spire Bushey 10km

Last but not least is the official July Summer Series race. Six HAC members competed and the ladies cleaned up with Hannah Wells and Ciara Williams finishing first and second lady respectively. Freya Hollingsworth finished as the third team member to score resulting in a win for the ladies affiliated team trophy. Well done ladies!

YDL Match 3 – 1st July 2018

Well done to all who competed in match 3 of the YDL on Sunday and especially those who even managed PB’s in this heat, reports Courtney Clarke.

Please remember to keep the 29th of July free for our final YDL competition of this season. There is a coach booked for our journey to Oxford Horspath and I expect you all to be available. Let’s finish as strong as we started.

Well done again.
