I am pleased to announce that our traditional Annual Open Relays will take place on the 26th April 2015 from the YHA National Forest Centre, Swadlincote. Full details can be found on this website on the dedicated page at http://wp.me/PDLtv-Fc and entry online will follow very soon.
For those of you on the ball with diary dates you will spot that the date does clash again with the London Marathon. We tried with all our might to avoid this date but because of other fixture clashes with the MCAA Relays and other Masters events your organising team are involved in, coupled with the potential venues being booked up and unavailable, we had to settle on the 26th April or nothing!!! Hopefully this will not affect us too much.
This event is for all affiliated runners (non-affiliated runners not allowed I’m afraid) and is open to non-MMAC members. Please disseminate among your fellow club colleagues and encourage a team entry. For individuals who cannot raise a team – don’t worry – please enter as an individual and you will be placed in a Composite Team on the day.
There is a possibility that a Race Walk Handicap will also take place at the same time, providing there are no major fixture clashes. Details will be published as soon as possible.
This is a reminder that this event is held within the BMAF Championships over the weekend of 20th/21st September at Alexander Stadium, Perry Barr, Birmingham. Closing date for entries is the 6th September.
For anyone interested in being selected for England in the British & Irish Masters International Cross Country this event is a must to establish a recent time.

Results from 8th June, Oxford
It is with regret that I announce that John Walker sadly passed away last night, Thursday, 19th June 2015, after a long illness aged 76 years.
John was a founder member of Centurion Running Club formerly Centurion Joggers in the 70’s and was a prolific organiser of road races in the area including the first World Veterans 10k & 25k Championships held at the NEC. He was also a prominent coach helping many athletes to achieve their ambitions. No mean performer himself, John always ran until a debilitating virus curtailed his activities.
John was involved for many years with MMAC and helped set up the course for the National Masters Open Road Relays held every year at Sutton Park.
Our condolences go to his wife, Janet, to his family and many friends in athletics.
Funeral details to be announced.
