Re : BRITISH MASTERS CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS
LIVERPOOL, SATURDAY 18th MARCH 2017
The British Masters Cross Country Championships is to be held in Liverpool this year over a 8k course. Last year’s event was held in Bath where our ladies teams achieved great success. Our small team of vet men (Rich Noble and me) raced in the Vet 45 and Vet 60 age groups and managed to place in the top 10 as individuals.
Teams race in 10 year age groups – so Vet 45 and Vet 55 will be our target age groups. We are planning to have a least one team in the Vet 55 age group and could also have a strong Vet 45 team.
Individual age groups are 5 years – V35 V40 V55 V60 V65 V70 etc. We have a number of runners who can place in the top 10 and probably medal as well.
I will coordinate transport and accommodation for teams and individuals.
The club will contribute to our entry and travel costs.
We will be sponsored by United Biscuits (no financial backing but plenty of free biscuits !)
For full details please look at the British Masters Athletic Federation (BMAF) website. https://bmaf.opentrack.run/comp/501/
Really hope you can join the team. Please e mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to compete. Just e mail your name and DOB.
