Oxon AA organises County Championships and inter-county events, selects County teams and leads athletics in Oxfordshire. More ➜
The best way for travel from the South is as follows:
M1 to junction 21A and then take A46 to Loughborough and Leicester North
After 1/2 mile, turn onto the A6; at roundabout follow signs to Loughborough and Rothley - straight over the next roundabout continuing 3.5 miles down A6.
Turn off A6 at SECOND signpost for Quorn and Barrow on Soar; proceed up the hill and turn left at the next roundabout.
The following are invited to run in these championships on March 10th at Prestwold Hall, Leics. Please note that there are listed reserves for some of the races - so if you are injured or unable to run, please let us know. The selection for these teams is difficult as some junior athletes run several races in the season, and others only the County Championships. The first six in the latter were selected as of right. I have tried to take all results for athletes over the season into this selection process.
Can I take this opportunity to remind all clubs and athletes that, in accord with the change introduced by UK-A, there is need for a parent or guardian's signature for ALL athletes aged under 18 in all events. This may represent difficulties for students studying away from their home; and as such, all athletes should allow themselves enough time to complete the necessary documentation in advance of event closing dates.
Entry documentation has been sent to clubs today (14/02/18). Is it worth repeating that if any club hasn’t had their info to contact Rose (we have been unable to ontact some clubs).
Origional post is here.
The Championships this year will again be held at Horspath and the final timetable and entry form available in due course. However, athletes and coaches may like to note the following:
It is essential that the length of the championships is not more than 8 hours on each of the days. This can best be achieved by removing some events (3000m, 5000m and 10000m; Steeple-chases) to other occasions during the summer.
Due to Exeter Hall being unavailable on Friday evening the Oxon AA Committee Meeting is CANCELLED. A replacement date will be made shortly.
Congratulations to Tracey Fernandez, who has recently gained a Level 2 (Field Judge) qualification.
It has been pointed out to me that the information sheet indicated that team awards for the veterans would be based on runners from all age groups; not the V1, V2 and V3 groups as occur in some county events.
Hence the first three teams in the Veteran men and women categories are:
Oxford City - 107 points (Jones 5; Richardson 9; Atyeo 21; Grant 72)
Eynsham RR - 123 points (Lewis 19; Storey 29; Pollard 36; Warburton 39)
Woodstock H - 151 points (Bolton 8; Cantwell 41; Linnell 50; Webster 52)
