Dave Phillips (Massey Ferguson)
– Marathon Man

Dave will hit a remarkable milestone in his running career on 28th April when he runs the Stratford Marthon. This will be his 500th run over the classic distance. Dave hopes to reach a fundraising target of £125,000 achieved over 21 years with the Brain and Spine charity. If you would like to help the Brain and Spine sufferers by sponsoring Dave please see the link below to the virgingiving site. Also on the virgin site is a link to the B&S so please have a look to see the work done by this very small wonderful charity.

Keith Richards given Lifetime Achievement Award

Congratulations to Keith Richards (WCAA Hon Sec) who has been given a Lifetime Achievement Award by Rugby BC. Keith lives in Rugby and is a member of Coventry Godiva Harriers but his contribution to Athletics and Race Walking in particular covers a very long time (lifetime in fact!) and a far wider area up to and including International events.

UKCAU Inter County XC Championships. Alex Adams 4th, Georgina Campbell 10th and Senior Women team 9th

Well done to Alex and Georgina (both from Stratford Upon Avon AC) and the Senior Women for their top ten finishes at the Inter County XC Champs.

Senior Men

More photos in the photos pages of this web site.
The weather, the course and the general facilities were much better this year although the wind made it hard going for the athletes (and our tents) at times.

The Warwickshire results are on the Results Pages of this site.

Mike Doyle

Sad to report that Mike Doyle passed away earlier this week. Mike suffered a stroke last year and has had a difficult time since then but is now at peace.
Mike made a massive contribution to the sport as an athlete, a coach, a timekeeper and numerous admin/volunteer roles for Clubs, County, Leagues and Schools. It would be impossible to list everything he did. At various times and frequently overlapping, Mike was the WCAA Treasurer, Awards Secretary and Permits Secretary.

Mike will be greatly missed and our thoughts and prayers are with Pam and Mike’s family.

2019 County Cross Country Championships on 5th January 2019
at HMPSC Newbold Revel – Record Entry

We had a record entry for the Championships and the feedback from all has been very positive. The new Venue at Newbold Revell was very well received. It is risky to list the people we must thank in case I miss somebody but I must give particular mention to Katie Lea (the Meeting Secretary), all at the Malt Kiln Farm Shop, all at the Prison Service Training College at the Newbold Revel (in particular the estates manager) and land owners Mr and Mrs J.V. Lea and Mrs J. Aston for kindly giving permission for access across their land.
The event could not happen without the marshals from the local community and all of the technical officials and volunteers from the clubs.

A big thank you to all of them.
