The Colin Simpson Memorial Handicap

After having to call off our annual handicap on the 5th February due to bad weather it has been decided to hold it on the 1st April 2012, once again within the Centurion Grand Prix Series by kind permission of Centurion RC. The handicap will be renamed “The Colin Simpson Memorial Handicap” in honour of our late Treasurer, Colin Simpson, whose 83rd birthday would have been on the 2nd April.

All the original entries and entry fees will stand but if anyone who wants to enter can now do so on a new entry form Colin Simpson Memorial Handicap 2012      the closing date is strictly the 22nd March 2012.

The handicap is open to Midland Masters AC member only and the entry fee is £6.00

Any member who has entered the Grand Prix event or series pays only £1.00 BUT will still need to fill out the handicap form. Let us get a good entry for this re-scheduled event.

MMAC Annual 5 Mile Handicap

MMAC Annual 5 Mile Handicap. Too late now to enter our handicap 5 miler taking place this coming Sunday at Kingshurst, Birmingham within the Centurion Grand Prix Series. We have received 22 men’s entries and 7 women’s entries. A little disappointing when you work out what percentage this is of the total membership. However, we are all going to have fun, don’t forget the thermals!!Image

New Milton Keynes Marathon
29th April 2012

The time is right, next year, British Olympic Year, sees a major new marathon come to Milton Keynes.

This is a city marathon with a difference.  With 4,500 acres of woodlands, lakesides, parks and landscaped areas within the city boundary, Milton Keynes is the ideal venue for a Green Marathon.

The course is traffic free on closed roads and cycle paths or “redways” as they are known locally and without any significant incline there is real PB potential for all participants.
