Newbury AC’s Sports Personality of the Year 2019

It’s that time of year again, Newbury AC’s Sports Personality of the Year will return at the presentation evening on Saturday 28th December.

In a similar format to last year, the winner of this award is entirely decided by club members, so we’re looking for your nominations of someone who’s been inspirational, motivational or just damn impressive in what they do – whether in track, field, cross country, road running or everyday club life. Any club member is eligible – old, young, fast or slow. A shortlist will be selected from your nominations, and the winner chosen on the night in a public vote.

Please email your nomination(s) to with a brief description of why you think they deserve the award by 30th November.

There’s no limit to the number of nominations (but you can’t vote for yourself!), so if you think someone is a worthy contender, don’t assume that someone else will do the honours!

Last year’s winner was Josie Robertson – can she make it two in a row, or will someone else claim the beautiful trophy?

2019 Road Running League Table: Final Results

The final version of the 2019 Road Running championship table (up to the final event 15, Tadley 10 mile) is linked below.


With final scores confirmed, the following athletes lead their respective tables:

Senior Male:  James Knight (99 points).

Senior Female:  Victoria Duncan (40 points).

Veteran Male:  Wayne Lillis (99 points).

Veteran Female:  Liz Harkness (60 points).

The competition was tight and fluid throughout the year so a massive well done to everyone who participated, supported and worked in the background to make these events possible.


Next year’s league table will follow a similar format but with additional events being added (the Run West Berks series).  Details to follow early in 2020.


November XC fixtures

Message from Phil Marshall:

Reminder to everyone that our cross country league season starts next weekend (Sunday 3rd November) in Bicester. It would be great to have a big Newbury AC turnout!!

Don’t forget there will be issues with the A34 so please leave enough time for any diversion and it always a good idea to lift share where possible as there is a car parking charge.

Fixture details here:

Please also note the Berks, Bucks & Oxon (BBO) Cross Country Championship is on Sunday 17th November at Prospect Park in Reading. I need to enter athletes that wish to run by the end of next weekend, so please let me know if you would like me to enter you (no charge for anyone wishing to enter).

Let me know if you have any questions.
