The idea of an Athletics Ball has been floated for years now, but this year finally saw its realisation. On Saturday night, nearly 100 members of the Club – old and new – met to celebrate what the Club means to them. For current members, it was a chance to rub soldiers with the esteemed figures of WUAXC history; for the 30+ alumni who made the journey, it was a moment of nostalgia of reminiscence.
As part of the ball came the annual cross country awards, with the Captains’ Awards for Best XC Athletes going to President Stock (#fix) and Julia Bijl – well done! All in all, this proved to be a well-deserved celebration of a triumphant season.
No mention of the ball would be complete without a massive shout-out to the ever-brilliant Events Coordinator, Namho Cho, who has only gone and delivered another flawless event! Hopefully this is a night which becomes an annual occurrence.
Finally, thank you to Chesford Grange Hotel for hosting such a wonderful night!
