England Masters Inter-Area Cross Country Challenge 2022

The Inter-Area Cross Country Challenge is back after a two-year gap! This event is for teams of individuals from all 11 of the BMAF Area Clubs to pit their strengths against each other over challenging terrain for national victory! Entry is by individual (sorry, no team entry process yet available); the result will be decided on teams of 6 athletes based on age graded percentages. This levels the playing field (although not the course terrain!) across all age categories and gives every team members an equal chance to score. Performance certificates will be circulated after the event (to assist the presentation on the day); certificate frames will be awarded. Plus the specially struck trophy to the overall winning Area Club!

The serious stuff:
The event is at the Rising Sun Sports Ground, Kings Road North, Wallsend, NE28 9JJ, hosted by Heaton Harriers & AC for North East Masters AA. The Inter-Area is incorporated within the 2022 NEMAA Championships and many thanks to them for hosting this event. Full details of the events can be found on the event prospectus.

Race 1 – 12:00: All Women and Men 65+ (approx. 3.5 miles; 2 laps)
