Awards 2016-17

The awards for 2016-17 (April 2016 to March 2017) were presented on Saturday 7th October 2017.

MAC Standard Tables are calculated from the athlete’s season’s best times at five distances. To be included in the end of season lists, or to be eligible for awards, members must email their race times to newsteam@maidenheadac.org. Times are adjusted for age and sex, based on Age Grading Tables compiled by the World Association of Veteran Athletes. The standards indicate overall running ability. Personal grades should be achievable after a couple of years of training and the athlete then be able to maintain these grades each year. Grades should be fairly similar at all distances. A higher grade may indicate where a speciality lies, a lower grade how training should be planned if the athlete wishes to improve at that distance.

The Victor/Victrix Ludorum Trophy is awarded to the Club Athlete achieving the highest aggregate grade at all the five distances.

The Chairman’s Cup

Chair Judi Jeffries writes:

This year the Chairman’s Cup was awarded to Leila and Jon Oliver in recognition of the contribution they have made to the club over the years.  They both give so much of their time as coaches to both junior and senior sections and in other roles such as XC captain (Leila) and 5k rep and road running captain (Jon).  Leila’s passion and encouragement has inspired more people than ever to run cross-country, resulting in our best ever season in 2016-17; and Jon has embraced his role with energy and enthusiasm, celebrating everyone’s achievements. Their contribution is valued by everyone and is representative of the ethos of the club.
