London Marathon Club Ballot and Brighton Places

HAC will have 3 or 4 club places on offer to club members for the London Marathon on the 22nd April 2018.

If you are a fully paid up club member and have been for at least 1 year, have a VLM rejection slip/email for next year’s race, not previously won a club place in the last 3 years and want to do the marathon please email me, Martin Bateman at mbateman@hillingdonac.co.uk by the end of Friday 1st December 2017. Applications from people without a VLM rejection slip/emails can request to be put in the draw but will only be included if they reached the “seeded” requirement which is explained below.

Places will be awarded again this year by ballot and the draw/s will be at the clubhouse on Sat 2nd December. These places are offered by VLM as a kind of reward to clubs so in turn the seeded applicants will be those that have put a lot into aspects of management and organisation of HAC.

If we receive 3 places 2 will available in the “seed” draw and 1 in the open draw. If we get 4 places 2 will available in the “seed” draw and 2 in the open draw.

If for example 5 people apply and only 1 is of “seed” standard then that “seed” will automatically get the place. There will then be a draw for 1 place from the remaining 4 names. If for example there are 5 applications and 2 are of “seed” standard then there will be a Seed draw between the 2 people. The unulucky seed will then go into the draw with the other 3 for the 1 place left. If there are no “seed” applications then everyone goes into the draw if there are over 2 applications.

Anyone applying will need to pay the entry costs themselves if drawn from the ballot.

We also have 10 places on offer for the Brighton Marathon on 15th April.

You have until 31 December to apply to me for a club place. If more than 10 apply I will use the same system as for the London Marathon. Athletes must pay their own entry fee of £69.50

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.

County Fell Running Champs

Middlesex County are looking for representives in the inter-counties fell running champs in Scotland on 13th May. No ability criteria has been shared with me but I’d expect the county would take those people that finish in top 15/20% of a Met League standard race as a guide. Please contact Andrew Owen for more info at Andrew.Owen@bfi.org.uk
