The County needs a team manager for the juniors!

The county is looking for anyone willing to look after the junior team, who will represent Oxfordshire at the CAU Inter-Counties Cross Country at Cofton Park, West Birmingham on Saturday 5 March 2011.  Selections for the teams are made primarily from the County Cross Country Championships, which are this year being combined with the Oxford Mail League XC Sunday 2nd January 2011, Horspath Road, Oxford.    It is hoped a volunteer will come forward by the date of the XC championships, to give a chance to meet the juniors who will be eligible for the team and to check their availability.

London Marathon Places

Sadly, there are no guaranteed places for Radley athletes available for next year’s London Marathon as our application for guaranteed entries has been misplaced by the postal company. At this moment in time the London Marathon organisers are unable to issue Radley with any places.    

Season's greetings, to all Radley athletes!

Radley Athletics Club wishes all Radley Athletes a restful Christmas break... But be sure not to eat or drink too much over this period as the competition recommences early in the New Year. Round 3 of the Oxford Mail XC League combined with the County Championships is at Horspath in Oxford on the 2nd of January, shortly followed by the Chiltern XC League (15th) and under 11 Sportshall Regional final on the (16th).
