Oxford University Athletics Club


The OUAC committee is elected each year in May, the day after the annual Varsity Match against Cambridge. The officers are chosen by majority vote by those members in person at the meeting.

All members of the club are encouraged to stand for a position on the committee at the AGM. There are many different roles to fill, and no one personality type is required.

At the AGM itself, those standing for a position on the committee are required to give a brief presentation. Following this, questions may be directed to the nominee from the floor. If the position is contested, an election then takes place in the absence of the nominees.

The committee also has the discretion to co-opt a member during the year, should it so desire.

Depending on the time of year, the committee meet three to four times per term. The executive committee, made up of the President, mens/womens Captain, Treasurer and Secretary also meet with the Senior Member and the executive of the cross country club during the term. The president, captain and secretary also sit on the Achilles Club board, and the president and captain on their respective blues committee.

If you have any queries about the roles of those on the committee, please do not hesitate to contact them. This is particularly the case if you are considering running for the position in the forthcoming AGM. Below are some profiles of this year’s committee – just to prove that really anyone can get involved!

President - Hugh Baker

Hugh has taken up the mantle of President after serving the committee as treasurer for a year. A well-known, friendly face amongst the club, and with some of the OUAC old dogs leaving this year, Hugh is in a prime position to rally the troops, and lead the new blood to victory!

Women's Captain - Sam Rawlinson

Sam is proof that hard work and dedication breeds success. Starting out as a relative novice three years ago, Sam has worked tirelessly, and has earned her well deserved spot in the Blues Squad as a Pole Vaulter and Sprinter supreme. Now as leader of the Blues team, Sam’s passion and drive will undoubtedly bring great results in the year ahead.

Men's Captain - Louis Rawlings

Living a stone’s throw away from Iffley next year, Louis’ natural habitat is the track. With his international pedigree well established, Louis has his attention firmly fixed on delivering a dark blue victory come V-Day: May 7th 2016. Despite his shoe collection suggesting he’s more Louis Vuitton than King Louis, he’s working hard to regain his crown by turning Iffley Road into his very own Bastille that the tabs won’t stand a chance of storming.

Hon. Secretary - Rowan May

Rowan’s PB smashes the high jump world record by 3 metres. To be fair, he is pole vaulter. But, an incredibly talented pole vaulter. His vast athletics experience will be invaluable to the committee this season with multiple selections for GB at international level. Overcoming a hand injury last season, sources say he has never been more motivated to write committee meeting minutes and is going to fly over the 5 metre mark at Varsity.

Fixtures Rep - Charlie Oakley

“Having arrived at Oxford this year, Charlie has sadly seen his season curtailed by a variety of unfortunate injuries, which have limited his performances, although it’s safe to say he’ll be keeping the Portugal rental bikes at arms-length from now on. With his injuries now behind him, he’ll hope to rewrite his 2 year old 400m PB and ensure the future successes of OUAC, aiding his fellow Geography fresher Captain.

Alumni Rep - Katie Holder

Katie is a true asset to OUAC.  Katie is a multi eventer, who has developed her throwing skills through committed weight lifting, leading the way for other women in OUAC.  Katie has been a part of the club for over 5 years, and been outstanding in committee positions including Women’s captain, vice captain , kit rep and general committee.  Her understanding of the club and its needs, as well as her passion and loyalty will remain invaluable on the committee this year in her role as alumni rep.

Webmaster - Anna Niedbala

Anna has thrown blues standards in three throw events this year, showing that no challenge is too big. Regularly found training at the track, and a friendly face, Anna has enthusiasm and knowledge of her sport that is invaluable to the committee.

General Committee - Alex Howard

Having led the cross country team to victory as captain in their varsity match, Alex has now turned his attention to the track and field side of things. He is a true asset to the club and will be able to use his experience as former captain of OUCCC to help out with all things athletics.
