London Marathon 2020 ballot entries

If you are a member of NAC with more than 1 year of full membership, you applied for a ballot entry to the London Marathon 2020 but were unsuccessful (ballot results will be landing as of this week), there is still an opportunity to gain an entry for next year’s event.
 
NAC will be allocated either one or two athletic club entries to the London Marathon (the exact number of entries which NAC will be allocated will be confirmed in late November 2019).
 
If you receive an unsuccessful London Marathon 2020 ballot entry email and wish to be considered for a club entry place, please forward your unsuccessful London Marathon 2020 email to conormcg56@gmail.com. A NAC ballot of London Marathon 2020 unsuccessful applicants will take place in early December 2019 where the club entry/entries will then be given to the name(s) drawn at random from a hat.

2019 / 2020 XC Season

The majority of the 2019/2020 XC season fixtures are now confirmed and can be found here. Please add them to your diary.

We had a hugely successful league season with a great turn out for all fixtures last year and it would be great have that again.

Phil Marshall E-J Bailey will automatically enter anyone who ran an Oxford Mail league race last year into the 2019/20 league.

They will also enter anyone that they have spoken directly to already, but if there is anyone who is new or returning to cross country and wants to race (it’s free for all competing members) , please let them know.

English Schools Combined Events

After successfully qualifying via the South East schools competition earlier in the season, three of our young athletes had the honour of representing Berkshire against the best multi-eventers in the country.

Reuben Langdon had a strong two days of competition in the senior boys decathlon, getting close to his best in all events, including a PB of 9.68m in the shot put to finish in an excellent ninth place overall.

Newbury had two athletes in the senior girls heptathlon. Despite her main discipline of pole vault not being included in the heptathlon, Trinity O’Connor had a strong showing with two PBs in the shot put and long jump to take 14th place overall. Competing in only her second ever multi-event, Bo Stewart finished a creditable 24th.
