BRITISH AIRWAYS ATHLETIC CLUB: AWARDS EVENING News of the Athletics Club Award Evening

On Wednesday 19th March, BAAC members, families and friends gathered at The Orchard to celebrate the club successes and stories of 2023.  Pizza, curry and fruit skewers added to the festivity of the evening!

The club had been busy in 2023, with successful participation in the Green Belt Relay (essentially, a very long relay race around the very edge of Greater London) and the World Airline Road Race in Calgary.  We competed in Cross Country and Track & Field Leagues, and we hosted the Speedbirds Ladies Race at Harmondsworth Moor, and the Concorde One Hour Race at Hayes.

Two of our 2023 award winners are illustrated here.

Roderick Hoffman (right) won the important “Tom Rowley Participation trophy”, given to the club member who organizes and competes in the most club events during the year.  Roderick is seen here being presented the award by runner-up Steve Newell.

 Steve Hillier (centre) won the Track & Field Grand Prix trophy, for performances across each of the running, jumping and throwing disciplines during Summer 2023.  It was presented by John and Benita Scaife, who had shared the club’s Veterans trophy for their performances in 2022.

Thank you to Bedfont FC for hosting the event.
