MMAC XC Championships, Droitwich, 23rd January 2011
It has been pointed out to me that there is a discrepancy between the team age groups published on the entry forms for the MMAC XC Championships in the Newsletter and that published on the entry forms which are on this Blog and on the MMAC & BMAF Websites.
The entry forms on the Blog & Websites are correct.
We are following the recent changes made by the BMAF Executive bringing the men’s team age groups in line with the women’s. These are: –
M35 – 44; M45 – 54; M55 – 64; M65 – 74; M75+ (depending on entries for this event M65+)
W35 – 44; W45 – 54; W55+ (depending on entries for this event W45+)
These will also apply to our Road Relays in April and the National Masters Road Relays in May. Any queries, please contact me on the usual numbers.
Entry forms are now available to download from http://wp.me/PQ0Ea-2x
Owing to unforseen circumstances the BMAF Cross Country Championships 2011 due to be held in Luton will no longer take place. The event has been re-scheduled to take place on the same Perry Park circuit in Birmingham used for the 2009 Masters International Cross Country on the original date of 12th March 2011.
Midland Masters AC together with Birchfield Harriers will be putting on the event on behalf of the BMAF.
As details emerge the dedicated Blog http://wp.me/pQ0Ea-2C will be kept up to date. Please make repeat visits and don’t forget to share with your friends & contacts by clicking the Facebook; Twitter and Email links below each post.
The criteria for selection are based on National BMAF events, especially the Cross Country Championships as well as the 5k & 10k Road and track championship races. Competing in BMAF rather than local events gives the selectors an opportunity to compare athletes over the same courses.
You MUST be a currently paid up member of MMAC to qualify.
An application form for consideration to be selected can be either downloaded from the BMAF website at http://www.bmaf.org.uk or from the MMAC website at http://www.midlandmasters.org.uk or from the link below.
Alternatively, send an sae 9″x 6″ (correctly stamped) to Mick Smedley, MMAC International XC Selector (England), 12a Bagshaw Street, Crewton, DERBY DE24 8TX for an application form.
All applications MUST be received by Mick Smedley (England only) no later than Friday, 24th September 2010.
Late applications will NOT be considered.

Welcome to the Midland Masters Blog. This is meant to supplement our website not to replace it and will be used to announce details of special events such as the Home International Cross Country (see separate page on this blog) and news that is not neccessarily suitable for the Newsletter. As they say… watch this space.
