New 4 x 100m Club Record

This weekend the U15 boys broke the 4x100m club record whilst competing at Aldershot in the Alder Valley League. The old club record was set in 2013 and the boys took it down to 46.8 seconds, 1.3 seconds faster.

Congratulations to Sam Samin, Sam Jagroop, Brandon Talla and Lincoln Ramdhanny.  (We don’t have a picture from the winning team as Aldershot track is a military site.) Congratulations boys.

Hillingdon 20

Due to significant road works on an area of the Hillingdon 20 course we have had to take the regrettable decision to cancel this year’s race. We apologise for having to cancel the race at such short notice and we do not take this decision lightly, however our foremost priority is to provide a safe racing environment. Following discussion with Hillingdon Council and an inspection of the course it was considered that this section of the course presents too great a hazard to runners and we have been unable at such short notice to find an alternative route. Our partner organisation Active Training World will be in contact with you to provide a refund.

Gerry Archer

It is with great regret that I must inform you that Gerry Archer passed away on Tuesday. It is thought that the cause was a heart attack but we understand that he passed quickly and peacefully. Funeral details to follow.
 
Below is a fitting tribute from Martin Bateman
 
A true old school HAC legend. An athlete going back way before the days when his club, Ruislip & Northwood AC, merged with Finchley Harriers in 66 to form HAC. Over the years he was a club president, committee member, coach, time keeper and supporter. He was my coach for almost 10 years and road and XC manager for more. Many an hour he spent out in all weathers for the group and the teams he managed and he battled ill health to still make it to sessions and races for us. A gentleman with a dry wit, he rarely compromised and was rarely pleased, but he was always a pleasure to be with. RIP Gerry!!!

The U15 girls broke the 4x100m club record whilst competing at Bracknell yesterday in the Alder Valley League. The old club record has stood for 50 years and our girls shaved 1.1s off it yesterday with a new time of 49.9 seconds.  This will also place them at No. 1 on the Power of 10.   Congratulations to Hebe Evans, Cassie Southgate, Juanita Kyere – Aidoo and Nana Owusuah Quainoo.
