Irish Eyes are Smiling

Congratulations to Martin Manion on his V45 silver medal in the 5000m at the Irish Masters T&F championships back in August.  Despite the stormy conditions Martin recorded a recent-times PB and WADAC V45 record of 16'50 to take the medal.  Since then Martin has further improved the WADAC V45 record to 16'37.38 at the Saucony Hampshire Grand Prix on 31st August.  We're looking forward to something special when Martin leads off for our V40 squad at the Southern Road relays later this month!

Final SAL match of the season - Thanks and Results

WADAC won our final Southern Athletics League match of the season, hosted at Winchester this Saturday.  It was a very close match where the lead was continuously changing between us and Eastbourne.

There were many PBs and everyone put in an extra effort for us to get as many points as possible, we just have to wait and see if we have done enough to get a promotion.

Huge thanks to all the volunteers and officials whose efforts made the match to run smoothly and be a great success, it is greatly appreciated by everyone.

Provisional results can be previewed on: and I will post a link to the final results when available.

A few photos are on the WADAC Website:

Thank you to everyone who has taken part over the season, its been great and so much fun.  Looking forward to next year :-)
