As part of the 40th Anniversary Celebrations, John Walker, our Road/XC Secretary, is organising a ‘Torch Relay’ from our birthplace at Halesowen to Tamworth where we are holding our celebrations. John is hoping that the whole relay (not a race) can be run in pairs for safety reasons and currently we are short of runners. The total distance will be in the region of 26 – 30 miles and will start at around 9.00 am from Halesowen and is aimed to finish with a lap of the track at Tamworth Athletics Stadium.
So, we are after volunteers to run to make this venture a success. Please contact John Walker on 07831592327 and leave a message if necessary stating the minimum distance you would like to run and John will contact you with all the details. Let’s make this venture, which is part of our celebrations, a total success….. contact John Walker NOW.
Please note that a late entry fee will apply after Wednesday 16th August. If you have been teetering on sending in an entry, then DO IT NOW. A full list of entries so far for MMAC members can be found at http://www.wilne.co.uk/mmac/mmac.html

Less than 3 weeks to go to the closing date for entries to our Track & Field Championships. All the details you need are on the “Championships” page on this site. Entrants must be fully paid up members of Midland Masters AC; guests are welcome but will not qualify for medals.
Because the event clashes with the County Track & Field Championships we are desperately short of Officials. We need timekeepers, recorders, funnel recorders and anyone who can help with the start and finish procedures. Anyone who feels they can help us out then please in the first instance contact Mike Wrenn on firstname.lastname@example.org
I am also compiling a list of Marshals; any member interested in helping out here should please contact me on email@example.com
If we cannot get the required number of people then the event will be in danger of being called off.
Please try to help if you can.
