SML 13 August 2011 - Match 5 Horspath, Radley win the league

This last match of the season ended us a huge top of the table clash with Radley AC (who were topping the division) taking on 2nd placed Wycombe and 3rd placed Basingstoke, whilst local rivals Oxford (in 4th place) were also at the same venue (but different match).

Volunteers needed for measuring new cross country courses

Radley A.C. is planning to host a cross-country event for the 2011/2012 season. The location will be Tilsley Park and the surrounding fields. This location has never been used for holding a cross country event on this scale before; as a result we need to establish courses with appropriate lengths for the various age groups for the first time.
We are asking for any volunteers who are willing to help us measure the course lengths – especially people who have Garmin watches (GPS tracking watches for runners).

Double success at the SEAA championships

The SEAA U15 and U17 championships were held at Ashford in Kent over the weekend. Christian Von Eitzen and Emma O'Hara both maintained their excellent form and won the U15 Boys 1500m and U17 Womens titles.
In the 1500m Christian easily won his heat on Saturday and then returned with a dominating display on the Sunday to win the title with a time of 4:19.
In the Hammer Emma had a solid 46m throw in the fourth round to win the title by more than three metres.

Gina Sunderland finishes sixth in South Eastern Combined Events

Over the weekend the South Eastern Combined Events Championships were held at Tilsley Park.

In the Under 15 Girls event we were treated to a tremendous competition and the winner Morgan Lake set a new U15 All time record. Gina Sunderland and Kathryn Woodcock both competed in their first combined events. The competition could not have been tougher, Kathryn set 4 PB's in finishing 19th - as the commentator said at the end it was a pity that discus was not one of the events in the Pentathlon.

Leadership in Running Fitness course

Date: Saturday 20th August 2011
Location: Horspath athletics track
The Network is working with Run England to try and recruit and train more leaders to enable them to run local running groups which will eventually act as a feeder to the local clubs.
