MMAC XC Championships

MMAC XC Championships, Sunday, 20th January

postponed-stampUnfortunately we have had to make an decision to POSTPONE the above event. Owing to the weather conditions as well as the forecast and with the safety of our competitors uppermost in our minds we feel that this is the correct decision. We foresee problems with traveling to the venue; car-parking and first aid, so to be fair to all concerned we have postponed.

Initially we are looking at an alternative date of the 3rd February to run the event BUT this will be subject to confirmation because of the many factors involved. Again, watch this space.

It would be helpful if members would pass this information on to any known entrants and share on social media.

A successful championships took place yesterday in Perry Park, Birmingham. I have reproduced a message from the MMAC Chair, Irene Nicholls, to the organisers….

“Hello everyone, congratulations on a most successful Championships today.
Please accept my personal thanks and that of BMAF & MMAC for once more providing a very supportive and professional team effort – I hope that the athletes appreciate the work and planning that goes into these events.  It has been a pleasure working with you all.
Wishing you a successful season and again many thanks” ………………..Irene

Marshals for BMAF XC Champs, 12th March 2011

There are still volunteers needed to help with marshalling the BMAF XC Championships to be held on the 12th March in Perry Park, Birmingham.

Birchfield Harriers who so kindly agreed to co-organise this event with Midland Masters AC, have a very big XC event the week before and cannot be expected to supply all the marshals for both events on consecutive weekends. I am therefore once more appealing to any members who perhaps are injured and cannot compete in the event to consider helping us out. The first of 2 races starts at 12 noon and marshals will be required to “sign” in at no later than 11.15 am in the Birchfield Harriers Club Room at the Alexander Stadium.

It is an easy course to marshal but we do need at least another 10 volunteers.

If you can help then please either make a comment on this post giving your email address or contact me at mmac.sec@blueyonder.co.uk
