Club news for everyone

 

Your Club Needs Your Help on 1st March

On Sunday 1st March RPAC are hosting both a MABAC fixture and a Border League fixture in Priory Park. We will need lots of helpers to set up and break down the courses and of course, marshal the events. The MABAC race starts at 10:00 and the Border League fixture starts at midday. If you can help please let us know by emailing  

 

Couch to 5K helpers

A big thank you to our volunteers Ginevra Stoneley, Adrian Grant, Jack Finn, Kate Knight and Claire Humphrey who all helped at the Couch to 5K session on Saturday, as well as Malcolm Woodman for coaching the session.

 

Junior news

 

25th January 2020 South of England XC Champs @ Parliament Hill

Nine young athletes from RPAC undertook the challenging cross country course at Parliament Hill on Saturday 25th January. See the report here

 

Border League Match 3 Sunday 2nd February @ Guildford

The Juniors had a successful if very muddy afternoon at the Border League fixture hosted by Guildford in Stoke Park. Strong results across all the races but the highlights being first and second in the U11 boys from Max Orchard and Stanley Phillips, second in the U15 boys for Oscar Curry and third from James Beatty in the U9 Boys. Our best team finish was the U9 girls who were second with our top four all in the first thirteen places and our fifth not far behind. The five were Lisette Matthews, Florence Tombleson, Florence Shade, Charlotte Randell and Daisey Barton.

 

Junior Dates for the Diary

The fourth and final fixture in this year's Border League will be held in Reigate Priory Park on Sunday 1 March. First race is at 12:00pm. As the hosts I hope we will have a large pool of runners competing. We will also need to supply a number of volunteers to officiate on the day. A note will follow shortly but please make yourselves available to help.

There will be no training for the Saturday morning 9:00am group on Saturday 15 February due to Half Term.
