April 2019

To all members

I hereby give notice that the 111th Annual General Meeting of the Woodford Green Athletic Club with Essex Ladies will be held on Friday, 26th April 2019, at the Clubhouse, Ashton Playing Fields, Chigwell Road, Woodford Green, commencing at 7.45 p.m. Your attendance is requested.

Phil Sharkey RIP

We are extremely saddened to have to report the death, on Friday, 1st March, of Phil Sharkey, who managed our National Young Athletes team and was one of the founders of our "Wasps" section on Saturday mornings.

Phil-Sharkey

It was Phil and Steve Dunn's idea to add another training option for our Under 11s back in 1994-95. During the first few years training was irregular, but from 1998 it became more formalised, with membership fees and t-shirts, and the name "Wasps" was adopted.

Boxing Day Relay 2018

Now here is a popular hardy perennial... the Boxing Day Relay!
 
This will take place at High Beach, in Epping Forest, on 26th December. Please arrive for 10pm to register for a 10.30 race start. For those of you who haven't done so before, the relays consist of two x 2 mile legs and one x 1 mile leg, and it is handicapped so that slower runners are paired with faster.
 
Please feel free to bring along friends and families to spectate / take part - or both! The meeting point is by the church, just down the road from the main car park, which also acts as the start/finish line.
