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!

July 3K Training Race

Well done to everyone that took part in the July 3K training race in warm conditions. The turnout was better than expected with the summer holidays now in full swing and there were a few new faces taking part too. Thanks once again to all the officials and course marshals without whom there would be no race. Results can be found here.

Clubhouse lockers

Hi Everyone

 

From the Suggestions Box we were asked to look into getting lockers for the clubhouse to store valuables. We would like to get a feel for how many people would want and use the lockers before making any decisions. Please put your name down at the clubhouse if you would want us to invest in some lockers which will be approximately £350  for a bank of 20.  Thanks.

Veteran Mens Track And Field Season 2017.

With our 4th and final match now completed on Wednesday 12th July the Hillingdon Ac Veterans Men’s team finished the season in an excellent 2nd place overall.


The 1st match was at Battersea with the highlight of the night winning all the age group 400m races one after the other and great performances all round. We finished 2nd here on the night, Unfortunately Phil Octave pulled up injured on his 4x400m relay leg, rupturing his Achilles, and we all wish him the best and hope he recovers well.
We finished a close 2nd to Herne Hill on the 2nd and 3rd meetings at Hillingdon and Battersea and with the final match at Perivale on July 12th we just needed to consolidate 2nd place overall here to maintain our finishing place.
With a great group of Athletes turning up and covering nearly every event and a few away for this fixture we did well just being pushed into a very close 3rd by Serpentine.  So Overall 2nd place for the Men’s team this season which gives us a very strong platform to build for next year.


Well done to all who turned up and competed for the team. All Results for the 4 meetings are on the Power Of Ten Website. Written by Jason Steel

5km Masterclass update

After the record-tumbling euphoria of last week’s race night, it was back to the track last night for the participants of the current Dash for Fitness 5K Masterclass, in association with Hillingdon Athletic Club. In action last night were: Grace, Kate, Lois, Sandra, Stuart, and Victoria, with the others being unavailable but coached on what to do in self-managed sessions.

As well as posture, balance, technique, strength, and power training, the night’s highlight was the 2 sets of 3-4 400m repetitions, which each runner was tasked with doing in a time consistent with the fitness improvements required for their 5k goal (ranging from 1:30-2:20per 400m).

These times are designed to be tough but everyone rose to the challenge, either beating their time or being within a second of it. They were all stars but Victoria was sparkling brightest of all as, incredibly, she managed to be an average of 15 seconds below her target time (and, even more amazingly, we found a strength/power exercise that she liked – so plenty more line jumping for everyone).

The picture below was taken after the track session – the smiles of satisfaction are not only for achieving their running challenges but also for successfully completing the additional exercise of: “memorizing the times for your 400s, whilst the coach dashes off to get a pen from his car” (idiot!).  Very well done everyone.

5K Masterclass Update (Records Tumble)

Having completed just over a third of the Dash for Fitness 5K Masterclass, in association with Hillingdon Athletic Club (HAC), it was time to check the runners’ progress in last night’s HAC 5K Training Race, and they all passed with flying colours.

Each runner beat their pre-Masterclass 5k time by more than 2 minutes (following on from the June race, when each runner beat their time by at least 1minute), with Victoria beating hers by 3 minutes, and Kate beating hers by 5 minutes! And that’s just the start of last night’s achievements…..Grace, Helen, Stuart, and Kate all set new PBs with Stuart, remarkably, not only beating last night’s target but also his target for the August 5k. Even more remarkably,Grace and Kate beat their targets for the end of the programme – so new ones will now be agreed. In addition, Sandra just missed a PB despite being just back from holiday, and Victoria, who was just outside hers, demonstrated increased stamina by running the last lap 1min/mile faster than the first 3k.

All in all, another truly amazing night with the runners once more leaving their coach open mouthed and very proud of them all.  Once published, full results will be available at https://www.hillingdonac.co.uk/

If you’d like to get yourself a new 5K PB, the next 12-week Masterclass will be held on Saturdays 9.00-10.00am (Kings College Track, Ruislip), starting on 16th September, and will be using Parkruns once a month to check progress. Limited places available. Further information and registration by email to dashforfitness@btinternet.com or call Gary on 07710 105086.

June Race Round Up by Hannah Wells

It’s been a busy month and hard to keep up, here are some of the highlights!!!

Summer Solstice

The Speedy Spencers

Inaugural Summer Solstice Race and BBQ 24th June! A really fun event for all family and friends of Hillingdon AC. Well done to Rob Thompson who ran as a solo team and still won the title! A special mention to Richard Mann who completed the fastest lap with 05:17, Anna Harwood for completing the fastest female lap with 06:20 and Patrick Hyde fastest junior lap with 06:40. Our next Big Hillingdon AC race and BBQ is  the infamous Gosunder on the 12th of August!

The Hutchison Harriers

 

 

3rd SAL Match Uxbridge
Home advantage at the 3rd SAL meant we were able to walk away with 2nd place in a very hard fixture! It was great to see so many new faces taking part for the first time in the SAL. Woman of the Match goes to newcomer Lorraine McNulty for being brave enough to try out the steeplechase in her first time competing!  Man of the Match goes to Liam Holbrook for his impressive dive to the line of the men’s 4x400m! The next League event is on the 8th of July at Reading, please let your team managers know if you are available, all competing athletics and first timers welcome!

L is for Lorraine, Lotte and Lyndsey

 

 

“The Vets”
The Vets team continues to go from strength to strength and following a balmy summers evening in June at Battersea Park, they remain 2nd place in the league! The next meet takes place on Wednesday 12th of July at Perivale – why not try something new or give something a go you haven’t done for a long time!

The Vets Team at Battersea Park

Kids Fly High
The latest 3k run took place on Tuesday 27th June. The weather wasn`t very pleasant but 51 athletes/parents turned out to run which was great to see. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped marshal the event whether it was as a timekeeper or as a field marshal to make sure everyone kept on the right route, your support is much appreciated.
The first athlete to finish was Josh H Lee who ran an impressive 11:16 and was followed in by, Patrick Hyde 11:43 and Arun Forrest 12.04. The first female to finish was Millie Loran in 13.39 and 11th place overall. Well done to all who took part.

SOME SPECIAL MENTIONS FOR THE HAC JUNIORS TOO

Lucy Wilcock broke club record for U13 Javelin with a throw of 28.70m!
Amy Hillier broke the club U17 record for 300m!
Lara Anene is now ranked 2nd in the country for 600m!
Well done to all who have been competing in this month’s league races, fantastic results!!!
