England Athletics Masters Association invite all runners who qualify to run for England to apply for selection for the above event which will be held in Londonderry, Northern Ireland on Saturday November 18th, 2017.
Race Categories are Women 35 to 70+ and Men 35 to 75+ in 5 year age groups. The selectors will look at runners performances in 2017 in BMAF and EAMA club races, over 5K and 10K on the road, track and country, as well as in other appropriate races. BMAF and EAMA events will give the selectors the opportunity to compare performances of runners against each other.
Forms and information regarding the requirements will be available on the EAMA website here and below, and from your Area Representative listed below.
EAMA are, unfortunately, not in a financial position to assist with travelling or hotel expenses. A team vest may be supplied but the rest of the kit required will be need to be supplied by the runner.
Michael Mann of VAC has said that, “Although there are very few direct flights to Derry, Belfast is very well served by air with plenty of cheap flights, and Derry can be easily reached by train from George Best airport and bus from Belfast International.” A very helpful, useful point.
Selection will take place early in October and all applicants will be informed of the selectors decision as soon after the selection meeting as possible.
