Tune in to ITV “Tonight” Programme on Thursday 13 April (most regions at 19:30) to watch an interesting programme on healthy ageing that should feature some footage from the BMAF Indoor and an interview with Carole Filer (EMAC), Colin Field (SCVAC), Delbir Singh Deol (VAC), Tony Bowman (NMAC), Richard Pitcairn-Knowles (VAC) and Charles Eugster (VAC).
Well done to the BMAF team (largely I think SCVAC but not exclusively) that managed today’s BMAF 10k Road Race Championships held on the Gravesend Cyclopark in Kent. Glorious weather (a tad warm for most of us) and a warm welcome from the staff made for a good race. With representatives from eight area clubs we saw 108 finishers.
The results have been published and are available at :
