Committees & Constitution

2013 EGM on Monday, 24 June 2013 @ 7.30pm, Undercliffe CC

Following the AGM on 29 April, an outstanding matter was deferred to an Extraordinary General Meeting, concerning establishing competition teams in road and cross-country disciplines at county, Northern and national level. This requires changes to the Constitution. A draft denoting proposed changes is attached here (PDF) and here (Word). Comments or proposed changes should be sent to the Secretary, Alison Hartley, in advance of the EGM.


Airedale Athletics was founded on 1 March 2007 after initial discussions between representatives of Bradford-Airedale AC and St Bede’s AC, after St Bede’s (later Saltaire Striders) had themselves resolved as a committee during 2006 to explore closer structural links with its neighbouring clubs. The exploratory meetings were held between Simon Forde, Jack Verity and Mike Moss on the one side and Stephen Wolstenholme, Brian Elsey and Chris Hainsworth on the other.

The current Airedale Athletics constitution was approved at the April 2011 AGM. It replaced the original one from March 2007 which was signed first by Bradford-Airedale AC and St Bede’s AC, with Eccleshill Road Runners joining on 1 January 2008. Baildon Runners and Skyrac AC each joined on 1 April 2009 and Queensbury Running Club’s application to join was approved on 4 October 2010.

The Board of Oversight

Airedale Athletics is run by a Board of Oversight with one member per club. This Board meets once or twice a year, including agreeing a slate of people to serve as officers for the association, for approval at the AGM. The latest meeting of the Board was on 5 September 2011.
