Night Orienteering Sat 2nd March 2019

A Night Orienteering event where participants/teams are given a printed OS map and punch card.
The map is marked with locations to find in the local area of Ruislip Clubhouse.
Each location has points to be scored from 10 to 50 points. There are up to 15 locations.
Each location has a unique card puncher and a reflective marker.
The winners are those that score the most points within 1 hour of starting and returning
to the clubhouse. There are penalty points of 5 per minute if late back. There is no set route so part of the fun is trying to choose the best route.

There is a staggered start per person/team. The first departure will be at 6pm.
The event is in the dark and all participants should have a working torch and dress to be seen.
A compass might be handy too. The routes participants choose may invovle dark alleyways,
fields and the woods depending how brave they are. Some main roads may need to be crossed.

There are 4 entry options.
Individual Runner: Individual Walker: Team of Runners: Team of Walkers.
Teams can have no more than 4 adults, but can have an unlimited number of U18’s.
Due to the nature of the event all U18’s must be with an adult at all times.
Entry fees are £5.00 per adult and £2.00 per U18.
All monies, excluding event costs will go to a local charity. Please pay in cash on the night.
The pre entry form is here https://fs21.formsite.com/mbatemanhillingdonaccouk/NightO/index.html

Wycombe Half Marathon

This year the annual half marathon and 10-kilometre race, to be held on 14th July, will be renamed The Hell-Fire Half and 10k.

The name change reflects the unique opportunity runners have to run through the historic West Wycombe Park, home to the Dashwood family and the infamous Hell-Fire Club, also referencing the “undulating” nature of the course.

The races will once again start and finish at Adams Park, home of Wycombe Wanderers FC, and we are pleased to say that they will again be sponsored by Grant & Stone.

Finishers will be awarded medals, t-shirts and a second-to-none goodie bag complete with a free entry ticket to the Hell-Fire Caves!

To celebrate the name change there will be, for a limited time, a discount on the entry price making it just £20 for the half marathon distance and only £14 for the 10k race.  This offer will last until 31st January.

And if you sign up for our sister race, the Grant & Stone Marlow 5 – this year on 12th May – you can pick up an entry for The Hell-Fire Half or the 10k for only £10 more! Again, this offer expires on 31st January.

Race entry and route maps can be found at www.handycrossrunners.co.uk

Middlesex Cross Country Championships – 5th January 2019

Congratulations to HAC’s U13 girls team who were victorious at this years Middlesex Cross Country Championships at Horsenden Hill, reports Diane Gibbons. Asmaa Abdirahman finished in first position, closely followed by Nicole McGovern in second place. Scarlett McClellan finished in 20th as our third scorer.

Not to be outdone HAC’s U15 boys team of Nathan Hackley (4th), Mohsin Moallin (12th) and Luke Edwards (13th) took second place in the competition.

A small band of senior ladies took to the fields, reports Zoe Dobbs. With most of our faster ladies missing and a stronger and larger field of runners from 2018, achieving another fourth place was always going to be a struggle this year. Hannah Wells as always was at the front of the pack coming in 19th (33.53), Zoe Dobbs 50th (37.33), Lynn Hyde coming back from a long term injury came in a credible 78th (40.58) and the amazing Mel Spencer running with a knee injury was our fourth scorer 82 (41.14). Congratulations to Vicky and Christina who both knocked off well over 4 minutes from their times last year which is an awesome effort. We finished 12th overall. Bring on Wormwood Scrubs!

Hillingdon AC’s senior men finished 4th in the team competition with Robert Thompson (8th), Aramias Zeraton (11th), James Laing (26), Fahad Abdi (35), Richard Mann (50) and Paul Leppard (66) scoring.

Well done to all that competed and represented Hillingdon AC on a cold January morning. Full results can be found here http://www.middlesexaa.org.uk
