Club bobble hats

The custom made NAC bobble hats have now arrived. They will be available to purchase at the next cross country league race at a heavily subsidised cost of £5 thanks to the generosity of Tailormade Building Solutions Ltd (family business of club member Jessica Franklin) and a contribution from the club.

Roc Newbury 10k 2020 – Volunteers required

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.

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 gensec@newburyac.org.uk 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?
