Harling Athletics Club AGM & Presentation Night

On Saturday 8th February, at East Harling Sports and Social Club.

6.30     Doors open

7.00     AGM

7.15     Food, entertainment and music.

9.00     Awards presentation – juniors followed by seniors


We have booked a magician as the main entertainment for the evening, he will spend a couple of hours working his way around the tables wowing us with magic tricks while we relax, eat and drink. There will also be music, dancing (not compulsory) and, undoubtedly, some ‘jokes’ from coach Gary.

We have booked a fish ‘n’ chips van to provide the food and they will be serving from 7.15pm till 9pm.

The cost of the food and entertainment will be subsidised by the club: The cost to members for the evening will be £3 / head. Tickets will be sold at the door between 6.30pm and 7pm and each ticket will entitle you to a meal from the fish ‘n’ chip van. The meal choices will be fish and chips or sausage and chips (of course you can choose to have just chips or sausage or fish).


It is important to stress that the AGM is open to all members and all are encouraged to attend. The AGM is free to attend, the £3 charge is not payable if you are just attending the AGM.


In order for the fish ‘n’ chips van to be properly prepared we will need to give them an indication of numbers for each meal choice in advance. Therefore, can you please respond to this email advising:


If you plan to attend

How many will be in you party

Number of fish and chips

Number of sausage and chips


If you have previously advised us that you will not be attending, there is no need to respond again. Otherwise, we would appreciate a response from everyone, whether you will be attending or not.


It would be great to see as many members as possible there on the evening, celebrating each other’s achievements over the past year and motivating each other for the year ahead.


Thank you for all your hard work and dedication over the past year and we look forward to seeing you on the 8th February.


HAC Committee and Coaches

London Marathon and HAC

We are pleased to announce that, once again, the club have a place available for the 2020 London Marathon, on Sunday, 26 April 2020.
This entry was offered by ballot to any existing club member who expressed their interest. The lucky winner of the ballot will have to enter the race and pay the entry fee of c£35 (and run the marathon!). The winner won’t be alone, as Steve Garland is already entered and there will be plenty of help with training beforehand. 

The ballot was held during training on Saturday, 21 December - at Lemon Pip Cafe (part of Swallow Aquatics), where tea/coffee and cake was consumed as part of the festive season and very tasty it was too! 

We are pleased to announce that Jane Williams won the coveted place. Good luck Jane - no slacking over Christmas!
