A small Radley team travelled on one of the hottest days of the year to Perivale nr Ealing in West London for their 3rd SAL match of the season.
Despite having a number of athletes at the U20/23 National Championships this did not stop the team rallying round to fill the vacated slots.
19 year old Alex Miell-Ingram won the County Champs 3K in impressive style kicking from the bell to open up a huge lead over the final lap. This was in 30 degree temperatures and after running a 5K for his Radley team the previous day. Alex’s winning time of 9.04 was also a pb and therefore broke his own CR.

I write this note in June to allow clubs to discuss the contents among their members.
Each year, the average age of the County Committee increases – we need new blood to take over some of the roles in running county events. For the last few years at the AGM, it has been tacitly assumed that the status quo will persist for the ensuing year. This is about to change.
Radley took a small team to Reading for its second SAL fixture of the season.
There were many good performances including 3 Club Records by middle distance treble Alex Miell-Ingram, Emma Haley and Rachel Burton.
Dean Macey will be doing a 4 day coaching course from 31st July- 3rd August and 14th August- 17th August at Tilsley Park.

After a 3 week warm weather training in Portugal Kathryn Woodcock was well prepared for the British University Championship in Bedford last weekend. On Sunday Kathryn was faced with blustery cold Bedford weather for the qualifying round of the discus, but managed to qualify with a throw of 46.28m which was well passed the automatic qualifying of 45m. In fact she was the only athlete to make the tough automatic qualifying standard.
This weekend (Sunday) sees the 2017 London Marathon in which Jane Birchenough (Anabel Pozniaks Mum) will run in support of our Club to raise funds for a portable defibrillator.
Jane has trained hard and I'm sure all club members and their families will join me in wishing her luck in completing this gruelling race. Please keep an eye out for on TV too!
Radley AC travelled to Tooting for the first SAL senior fixture of 2017. Having been hit hard with Easter unavailability they rallied to fill as many events as possible and managed to come 2nd to a very strong Windsor Slough and Eton team.
The weekend of 13-14 May sees this year’s County Athletic Championships at Horspath Track. We would encourage all of our athletes from under 13 upwards to take part in these championships.
This is an opportunity to compete against other athletes from the county as individuals rather than as part of a team. Medals are awarded for top three finishers in all events (subject to sufficient entries).
