Those who run on tarmac will have read that the BMAF 5k Championships incorporated into the Horwich Festival of Sport has been cancelled.
This was a big disappointment to all, as the LOC could not promote the Festival due to a lack of sponsorship.
However, the BMAF are determined to promote a 5k and it looks as though we now have an opportunity to build on the success of the 5k event we promoted in 2021, and that could be in the North of England in the Autumn.
Those who are eager to prove their fitness now will have the opportunity to participate in the Festival of Sport at Tenby on the 3rd of July where a 5k,10k and a Half Marathon will be promoted with an international buzz.
England and Wales will be selecting teams for all 3 distances and the Half Marathon will also be labelled the BMAF Championships .
For those who have English qualification status the link below will advise:-
Welsh Athletics have their own selection policy and are driving the challenge and I am sure Masters in Wales are fully aware of the event .
From a BMAF Championships perspective those who are affiliated to a Masters Club will only to have to pay £30-00 to enter the BMAF Championship a £10-00 reduction on the open entry fee.
There will be a small additional charge if you need transport to the start in Pembroke.
Half Marathon entries are live on open track now and it is advisable to enter as soon as possible as entries need to close early.
