2020 AGM notice

Normally the club would have held an AGM back in April 2020, but Covid and lockdowns put paid to this.  We had been hoping there might have been an easing of restrictions later in the year to allow an actual AGM to take place, especially as many older members who regularly attend the AGM don’t have the technology to allow them to attend virtual meetings.  However, given the new restrictions it is clear we will have to hold the 2020 AGM online via ZOOM and very much delayed.  By the club constitution we are obliged to hold an AGM, so we do indeed need to hold one.

So, we will be holding a virtual AGM via a ZOOM conference call.  I am sure most of you will be familiar with Zoom during the last 10 months of various lockdowns.  If you aren’t, then hopefully you can ask a family member to help you get set up.

The meeting will take place, starting at 7:45pm on Friday 22nd January.  If you would like to attend, please email our President, Cowsi Magol at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., who will then send out instructions for joining the meeting.

An email has been sent out to all on the club database, which includes the Annual Report and Agenda.  If you haven’t received the email, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I will send you a copy.

Virtual Boxing Day Relays

The club’s Boxing Day relays moved to a virtual event for 2020. Registered runners were assigned to teams (named for club record holders on the track and road) at 10am, and photos of watches and GPS screenshots and links flooded in throughout the day.

Team Matt Shone (Rhys Edwards, Caroline Frith, Stefan Prince and Clair Stockings) ran out winners of the 2x2 mile, 2x1 mile virtual relay with a time of 39:43. They edged out Team Andy Morgan-Lee (Bertie Powell, Matilda Frith, Zoë Watson and Alex Wardle) on 40:41 and Team Jo Fenn (Tom Beedell, Charlotte Lovell, Jasmine Hall and Mark Adolphus) on 42:14. There were 44 individual participants across 12 teams.

WGEL v CHAC mob match

It was honours even as the five day window closed on the Woodford Green versus Colchester Harriers 10k virtual Mob Match on 20th December. Woodford emerged victorious in the 12-to-score and ‘Mob’ overall team competitions, with Phil Norman (31:40) and Suzanne Phillips (40:28) recording the fastest men’s and women performances of the match. Age-and-sex graded rankings were also calculated. Colchester took the team competitions based on these recalculated standings. M60 Dave Cox’s 40:28, converted to a notional ‘senior men’s time’ of 31:39.9 for 2nd place, was the top Woodford performance in this competition.
