Eileen Naughton, a Radley AC volunteer, is in training to run the London Marathon for the first time, to raise money for charity. She will take to the streets on April 18 for the 26.2 mile route through the capital to raise money for the Meningitis Trust.
To sponsor her, visit www.justgiving.com/eileennaughton1, or call 01235 815345.
A Golfing Voucher has been donated to Radley AC and we felt this would be a good opportunity to raise some funds for the Club by offering this voucher to a Club member or their family or friends via a Silent Auction.
The voucher details are as follows:
· 18 holes of golf
· For 4 people
· At Waterstock Golf Club, Thame Road, Oxford. OX33 1HT
· Any week day or at the weekend between now and the 19th September 2016
NB. The green fees for playing 18 holes of golf at the weekend are £29.50 pp so this is worth approximately £120.
Hay fever is more common in athletes and around 60% of our team suffer with some of the common symptoms of blocked or runny nose, sneezing, runny eyes or even just fatigue. It can be associated with worsening of asthma symptoms if you have asthma.
Symptoms are due to an allergy to pollen, and are therefore worse when the pollen count is high. Some people are allergic to grass pollen, some to tree pollen, so different people may suffer at different times of the season (grass in Spring, tree in deep Summer).
A finalised timetable for the Charles Kear Memorial Open (Graded) Meeting 2016 can be downloaded here.
There have been no adjustments since the finalised timetable.
Race allocations have been based on the times submitted on entry forms. Please check which heat you are in, and arrive at the start at least 10 minutes before its start. If you are in a later heat please do not arrive too early – we would rather not have over 100 people congregating at the start!
The 2016 Track & Field County Championships (to be held jointly with Buckinghamshire) will be held on 14-15 May at Horspath Road, Oxford. Entry forms are available on the Oxfordshire AA website and entries close on Friday 22 April.
Entries for the Charles Kear Memorial Open (Graded) Meeting taking place on 3 April 2016 have now closed, thank you to everyone who has entered this event.

The window for renewing your Club membership online (for 2016) has now closed. If you still need to renew your membership you will have to do it by cheque.
BIG FISH BIG POND
You can be a big fish in a small pond for your athletic career, but the only people who will remember are you and your Mum/Dad! If your going to progress and go up the rankings you have to test yourself against the best the UK has to offer. A strong contingent of Radley athletes set off for Sheffield to perform in the individual indoor event championships. At stake would be gaining great experience, personal bests, final placings, potential medals and an opportunity to be that big fish.
We recently met with Abingdon School for an update on the Tilsley Park developments and can report:

- All necessary conditions/approvals have now been received/resolved in respect of the new throws area
- The bar area which is currently not in use is to be completed shortly
- The School have put a noticeboard in reception which will keep users updated on progress and developments so keep an eye on that.
