Another win and four points came from Annika Teska who also broke a course record in the high jump with […]

November 22, 2017 James Findon

Before the modern Olympic movement there was the United Hospitals Athletics Club (UHAC). UHAC itself may no longer be operational, but the United Hospitals Athletics Championships which it organised are still very much alive.

Since then, notable committee members have included Sir Roger Bannister, Dr Peter Sperryn and David Morgan. The annual meeting hosted by UHAC featured events such as the 100 yards, 250 yards,  880 yards, 1 mile, 2 miles, 120 yard Hurdle […]
