Overview: The club owes its origin to the Ealing ‘United Services Boxing Club’ formed by ex-service men, who instituted an athletics section in 1920 and became Ealing & Hanwell Harriers in 1924. Southall Norwood AC was formed in 1931 becoming Southall AC in 1937 and the two clubs combined forces in 1966. In 1994 Middlesex Ladies AC amalgamated with Ealing & Southall AC. Middlesex Ladies were founded in 1923. The club’s earliest famous athlete was Vera Palmer who set a world record at 250 metres in 1925. Dora Gardner was women’s team captain at both the European Championships in 1938 and the Olympics in 1948. Kelly Holmes is the 2004 800m and 1500m Olympic champion and also current British record holder in the 800m. The Club’s first male international was Mike Blagrove who ran the 1500m/1m for Britain in 1958 while Joe Keating ran a world best for 50km in 1973. The club currently operates teams in division 2 of the Southern Athletics League, division 1 of the Youth Development League, and the Middlesex Young Athletes League.

Overview: Hillingdon AC was created in 1966 through the amalgamation of Ruislip-Northwood and Finchley Harriers, founded in 1877.
The objective of Hillingdon AC is ‘to give every member the opportunity to train and participate at his and her best level, in a professional and happy environment and be recognised locally as such a club”.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly, open club with an active social section throughout the year for all age groups. The Club has around 400 paid up members of which almost half are under 21. The Club is open to individuals of all ages and ability and currently provides competition in track, field, road and cross country from 11 years of age up.
Hillingdon AC is affiliated to UK Athletics through England Athletics, the South of England Athletic Association and Middlesex County Amateur Athletics Association. The Club has produced numerous internationals and past Olympians including two Olympic champions – the last David Hemery in 1968. We have also competed at the highest club level. The past few years have seen the Club develop a resurgent junior section. The Club believes this is the key to producing the top class athletes the Club needs to reach its potential. Every year the Club has made significant investment in people, equipment, clothing, training courses and travel to support this goal. Hillingdon AC is part of UK Athletic’s ‘Clubs Future’ programme. The programme is used to monitor current performance and plan the Club’s future development. We endeavour to ensure all coaches, team managers and individuals in regular contact with children are CRB checked. The Club is run on a democratic basis with each key management post elected in March at our annual AGM. On a day to day basis the Club is run by its 6 sub committees who report and make up the management committee. Club accounts are presented at each AGM by the Treasurer, a qualified accountant, and are independently audited by a qualified auditor. Hillingdon AC is in good financial health with significant cash reserves to enable the Club to comfortably meet its financial needs.
