t will come as little surprise that after careful consideration and following Government and EA guidelines regarding the Covid-19 outbreak we are making these changes to our program.
The MMAC AGM scheduled for 25th April at Rosliston Forestry Centre is cancelled. We are investigating the option of a voice conference instead, if we proceed with this we will send out details shortly.
BMAF have already announced the Road Relays at Sutton Park on 16th May at Sutton Park are cancelled. We had originally hoped to have a Midland’s race inside that event.
We are cancelling the MMAC Track and Field Championships on the 14th June at Nuneaton. We will not hold a standalone event this year, we will investigate other options when track restrictions are removed.
We have not yet heard about the status of the Outdoors Inter areas or the BMAF Outdoor T&F Championships.
The committee will continue to meet by Voice Conference so that we can be prepared for a restart when possible.
We will look to keep producing a newsletter with interesting articles and detail of the recent MMAC indoors domination. If you would like to submit any articles that would be welcome.
One thing to look forward to next year, 2021, we will be celebrating 50 years since the MMAC was formed. We hope that we can celebrate our sport and this milestone together.
