Another fine weekend of athletics at Horspath Road was marred only by steady rain later on in Saturday’s timetable. With photofinish and electronic distance measurement now firmly established, there were some great performances on both track and field in the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire joint County Championships.
Attached are the results for the County Track and Field Championships that took place at Horspath on 12th and 13th May 2018.
Entries are invited for the County Championships 5000m, and 3000m walk, at the University track, Iffley Road, Oxford, on Wednesday evening 30 May. These are also open races, so all are welcome. Entries for the County Championship races close on 23 May, and deadline for open entries is 30 minutes before the race. Complete the entry form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. These races are included in the Town vs Gown match, organised by the University.
At this year's County Championships at Horspath there is no parking available at BMW. Instead we are arranging for overflow parking on the Horspath site playing fields. Please follow signs for parking when you arrive. There must be no parking on road verges - and infringers will be notified to the police. And please think about car-sharing wherever possible to minimise the amount of traffic arriving on the Horspath site.

The Championships this year will again be held at Horspath. To aid the smooth running of the programme, we are asking each of the T & F clubs in Oxon to nominate ONE helper for each of the four half days of the championships. This is in addition to the qualified officials they provide. We need this extra help as the two counties do not have enough officials to maintain all the events. We are agreed that these helpers will never be asked to run any event without the support of more senior officials.
The remaining medals from the County XC Races will be available for collection at the County Half Marathon (White Horse Half Marathon) this Sunday (April 8th). They will be parcelled up in individual clubs, and it would be helpful if a member of all clubs could contact the County Chairman in the Hall after the half-marathon and then distribute onwards. The delay in presenting these arises because of the cancellation of the last race in the OxMail XC series.
Inadvertently, there is a misconception in the notes for the T&F championships, relating to the U13 athletes. For Track and Field athletics, they must have reached their 11th birthday by August 31st in the competition year, and so can compete whilst aged 10. It is only in Cross Country and Road Races (including the County Road Relays) that these athletes can only compete as U13 from the day of their 11th birthday.
