Welcome to the website of Radley AC, Oxfordshire's premier athletic club, coaching athletes of all ages and abilities.
It is with sadness that I advise of the death of one of the Clubs founder members Vi Franks. Vi helped friends Eileen and Charles Kear and Jill Slatter start the Club. Her children (Amanda, Jane and Chris) were athletes over the years and her late husband John (also pictured here) officiated and supported the Club also.
Vi was diagnosed with vascular dementia 9 years ago and fought hard, right up to the end!
Our condolences go out to the family at this sad time.
It is with great sadness that I report the passing of a former Radley member Julie O'Hanlon (Stone) earlier this week.
Julie was a sprinter and long jumper specialising in the latter. She was part of the quartet that still holds the Radley U15 4 x100m CR (49.1s).
Julie had battled with cancer for some time, but was still taken unexpectedly, leaving behind her husband Chris and two children Declan and Kala. The Club sends its condolences to all her family and friends.
It is with pride and pleasure that I write this message to advise that Jill Slatter, one of the Club's founder members, has received a British Empire Medal in the Queen's Honours List this year.
Due to the continued restrictions in place because of COVID-19 and a decision by Oxon Athletics Association it is with regret that we will not be holding the Club Championships this year.
In light of the government’s announcement yesterday and England Athletics' subsequent statement regarding Coronavirus, we have no choice but to formally cancel our Club training session on Monday and Wednesday evenings until at least the end of April 2020 with immediate effect.
In light of the government’s announcement yesterday and England Athletics' subsequent statement regarding Coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Open Meeting scheduled for this coming Sunday.
