 To all BMAF Area Clubs

England Athletics Masters in collaboration with Veterans AC are staging a trial Inter-Area Cross Country Challenge on Wimbledon Common, an historic and classic cross country venue.

Post-race reception and prize giving at 4pm in the Swan pub, 89 Ridgway, London SW19 4SU

Provisional booking at this stage

Race 2 M35, M45, M55; 2:30 pm

4.5 miles cross country

Age Groups 35-44; 45-54; 55-64; 65-74; 75+ men and Women

Eligibility: BMAF Area Club members only, UKA affiliation mandatory

Individual entry, no team selection necessary

Entry fee £10 online by BMAF OpenTrack only

Awards: Trophy for the wining Area Team, certificates for scoring runners in the winning team

The teams will be scored by points for 4 runners in M35 and M45 categories, 3 runners in M55+ and all women’s categories.

Please can you circulate this information with the link to the picture of the Trophy to your club members and encourage them to enter this new event.

This is a trial for this year and we would like it to be successful and grow in future years, when it can be held in a different region each year.
