National Discus Success

Radley AC discus thrower and Oxfordshire County Champion Adam Chesterman left it until his final throw to claim 3rd place and the bronze medal at the Southern English Athletics Association Championship in Kent on Saturday 17th August.

Adam (aged 15) knew he had to throw further than 44.14 metres to snare the bronze, and unfazed, rose to the challenge by producing a fantastic throw of 44.66 metres to join Rhys Alen (Southampton AC) and current U17 champ Kane Aubrey (Wimborne AC) on the podium.

Oxon Junior League results M2 - 11 August 2019

Thank you to all the athletes, parents and supporters who attended the Oxon League at Banbury on Sunday. 

It was a great day - with some challenging weather - and well done to all those who managed a PB as well. In particular, a huge well done to the U13 boys team who came first overall on the day - especially to Henry Fletcher for his amazing 1.46m in the high jump - a new Club record!

The 3rd Oxon League is on Sunday 8th September at Horspath.

OAA Track & Field Championships 3000m - Polite Reminder

As indicated at the recent championships, there are plans for the 3000m championships to be held at the Marlow Open Meeting on Sunday 16th June. I have previously asked for interested athletes to let me know that they wish to compete; so far, few have done so.

Unless there are more expressions of interest (to be followed up by entries on the day, entry fee £5), these championships will NOT take place. The timing of the races will be at around lunchtime.

London Marathon Fundraiser

Many congratulations to John Rice who ran the London Marathon last Sunday in a Radley vest and broke his target time of 4 hours by running the 26.2 miles in 3:54.58. 

Thank you to everyone who sponsored him; he was raising funds for the Club to help replace and purchase new equipment which will enable us to support our athletes to reach their full potential.
