The last two Presentation Evenings have been both very popular and successful and the club’s Management Committee would like this year’s event to be even better.

2015 Presentations

We are in the planning stage at the moment and knowing that nearer the event a number of the organisers are unavailable, we are looking for someone to work alongside the organisers and committee members.

You could be the one that brings that little bit extra to our Presentation Evening !

Updated club records

Screenshot_2016-04-22-22-39-23-1Just in time for the start of the athletics season here is the updated list of club records. All new records are marked in green. A number of athletes have already been busy setting new records in 2016 – well done to Elliot Walker (JM triple jump) and Maddie Hammond (U13 600m and 1000m). We’ve also added a few from the end of last year and earlier. Well done Freya Liddington, Hope Stirland, Jasmine Walker, Donald Brown and Kevin Brown.

RSCAC club records – 22.4.16

Good luck to everyone competing in the next few weeks – especially the U13s and U15s who kick off their season with the YDL match at Banbury this weekend. Go Royal Sutton!!!

National Road Relays

Screenshot_2016-04-22-21-28-14-1A great effort by our athletes at the National Road Relays with the women finishing 33rd and the men finishing 62nd.

For the women the fastest long leg was run by Kate McBrien whilst Helen Elsoueidi ran the fastest short leg. Rachel Thebridge, Emily Campion and Abby Gracie all improved their times from the Midland Road Relays.

For the men the top performance came from Tom Chew who knocked over a minute off his Midland time to run 29.38. Jerome Austin also had a great run, running our fastest short leg.




Anniversary Waltz Fell Race – 16 April 2016


RSCAC is not only present in the Walking, Track and Field, or Cross Country scenes. We also do fell running.

Nick Corker had a great outing at the 2016 Anniversary Waltz fell race in the Lake District last Saturday, which also marked the 20th anniversary for this fell race.

In a field 332 runners strong, with an 11 miles race and more than 1,100m of ascent – or 3,609 foot if you prefer – some of which were so steep that they had to be done on all-fours, Nick finished in an excellent 17th place, and covered the distance in 1:49:22.

If you think that cardiac or sandy hills in Sutton Park are too difficult, and need a tip or two on how to climb or come down a mountain like a proper fell runner, have a word with Nick.
