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 - Adam McBraida

The multi-talented, multi-named Adam, Andy, Braida, Bradley, Bradders has truly been unleashed. Sporting calves double the diameter of anyone else’s in the team, Adam is well equipped to stand as the OUAC flagship. With his great form this year, Adam is hoping to inspire Oxford athletes with his 5 medal haul and 2 trophies at Varsity, leading his Men’s side to victory as Blues’ Captain. The proclaimed ‘Captain Fantastic’ already has his eyes set on the 4-0 to complete his legacy at the top.

Men's Blues Captain - Sam Trigg

Sam Trigg’s status as OUAC’s most desirable man stems mainly from his impressive high leg:torso ratio and sculpted abs. He’s also not a bad athlete, who, under the iron regime of the ‘Dan-plan’ has jumped the Blues distance regularly this season. With his impressive attitude and personal achievement, The Trigger is set to be potentially the most inspiring and successful men’s captain to date, and he’s had a tough act to follow!

Women's Blues Captain - Montana Jackson

OUAC’s personal medic, Montana has shown that no mountain is too high when it comes to training this year. Whether on the track, in the gym or on the water (??), she is always pushing herself to the limits. With her positive attitude and motivation, Montana is set to see the return of Oxford Women’s athletics and perhaps even shock Cambridge with a trophy returned to its rightful place…

Hon. Secretary - Will Durkin

Will arrived on the scene late this year, running his debut at FEAR. Now, after a solid bout of training, and having run well at BUCs, Will is now looking to contend with the big boys. Enthusiastic and organised, Will will be hold the club together well this year in his first role on the committee this year.

Men's Seconds Captain - Freddy Smith

Freddy Smith is the nicest guy in the club, no doubt. Any questions or queries, he is your man. Freddy will be heading up the seconds team this year, working alongside Adam to ensure we get another Men’s victory this year at Varsity! He will also be arranging the brilliant annual tour to Portugal (a must go!) alongside Eni.

Webmaster - Craig Morten

Earning the epithet of ‘crazy’ this year, Craig has taken a step back this year from the mad dashing about, over the top admin, and over sleeping to ensure not a thing is missed with all things web. Looking to overhaul the website, increase communications and spam the twitter feed, Craig will also add a haul of experience from his Secretarial role last year.
