If you are unsure about whether to go to the track or not please contact your coach.

Message from Ryan Hill – Race director 2020
Having taking over from Becky Elsmere, I am now beginning to make plans for next year’s Roc Newbury 10k race on 24th May 2020 (please keep your diaries free!!)
The race provides a huge benefit to the club and chosen charities and requires lots of volunteer support to stage successfully.
Getting involved in the race organisation in any way is a great experience, please get in touch if you’re available to help – I’m sure there will be a role suited to everyone.
The 2020 provisional SAL fixtures have been announced as:
Saturday 25th April – Kingston
Sunday 17th May – Andover (home fixture)
Sunday 7th June – Basingstoke
Sunday 12th July – Uxbridge
Saturday 15th August – Reading
*note three Sunday events this year!*
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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?
Danny Hawkins completed 210.38 km to set a new club record for a 24 hour event.
