SURREY COUNTY ADO - Jake Waldron the new Athletics Development Officer for Surrey started his new role on the 2nd of May and already attended the Surrey County Athletics Championships meeting many clubs.

You can contact your new ADO by email: ado@surreyathletics.org.uk or by mobile: 07846653560.

Jake's remit will be to identify the areas for development across Surrey through initial research, insight analysis, and consultation, which will be feeding into the creation of a County Development Plan for Surrey. Jake will be focusing on areas such as throwing and jumping events which have been identified as an area which clubs have historically struggled with at all levels. Jake's work plan will also include developing a bigger and better coaching workforce across the county and bridging the gap between school athletics and club athletics.

To support our new ADO in the initial research and planning stages, it would really help us in working with all the clubs in Surrey, if you could fill in the following survey short survey Jake has created which shouldn’t take no more than 5 minutes of your time and will help shape the future development work of Surrey Athletics, and positively impact athletics across the county and your club.

ED WHITLOCK 1931 - 2017 - An obituary for Ed Whitlock who died on 13th March 2017 was published in The Times on 16th March 2017. It mentions that he was the first person over 70 to finish a marathon in under 3 hours when at the age of 72 he ran 2hrs 59mins 9secs; a time he improved a year later to 2hrs 54mins 49secs. In October 2016 at the age of 85 he ran the Toronto Waterfront Marathon in 3hrs 56min 33secs!
He was born in South London and, although our records for the immediate post-war years are limited, they show that he finished 4th in the 1948 Surrey Youths Cross-Country Championship representing Surbiton Grammar School. By 1949 he had joined Walton AC and he finished 2nd in the Surrey Junior Mens One Mile championship and then in 1951 he was 7th in the Surrey Junior Mens Cross-Country Championship.
In 1952 he emigrated to Canada where his athletics career ceased until he took it up again in 1975 when his 14-year old son wanted to attempt a marathon. Subsequently Ed set many age group records from the Mile to the Marathon and was the World Masters Champion for 1500m in 1979.

PAM DAVIES - We regret to report the passing of former Surrey president Pam Davies, winner of the English women’s cross country title a record-equalling four successive times. She died in a North London hospital after a short illness, aged 82.
She took up athletics in 1953 when she was a student at Leicester University after she discovered there were races further than 100 yards. She began at 880 yards and was the Women’s AAA national one mile champion in 1963. After finishing runner-up in the English women’s cross country championship in 1964, she won the event in 1965, 1966, 1967 and 1968, only the second runner to win the title four consecutive occasions. Diane Leather (1953 to 1956) was the first runner to achieve the feat. She also represented England three times in the international championship.
Although she achieved further success on the track she admitted cross country running was her favourite event. She was a regular competitor in the Surrey Championships between 1961 and 1973 winning the one mile title four times in 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1968 and the county senior women's cross country title in 1960, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965,1966 and 1967.
She and her late husband John were the 20th century Bow Street runners as they frequently trained from their home in Bow Street where they had two sons. She was also a full-time teacher as head of science at a South London school. She lived the last few years of her life at the Highbury development in North London to be near one of her sons. After retiring from competitive athletics in the 1980’s she continued to support the sport as a qualified official. She was elected Surrey president in 2001 and from 2002 to 2013 she was assistant secretary taking the minutes of executive committee meetings. Profile.
