Forward notice from Rob Andrew on the Masters XC Champs.
The above X-C Champs take place on Sunday March 25th at Bath.

Paper entry form located at http://www.bvaf.org.uk/fix/bmaf2012xc-entry.pdf

Entering athletes for this race will be a nightmare for one person (me) because athletes need to belong to an affiliated masters Club e.g. Midland Masters (MMAC) and quote their membership number to get the reduced entry fee OR provide evidence of their date of birth. Co-ordinating all this is not something I plan to do, so instead I’m giving you notice that the deadline for entries in March 20th (on-line, or to get your postal entry in by then). If you enter let me know and I can then sort out age related teams on the day. We may sort out transport too depending on numbers.
If you do run, the club will reimburse your entry fees after the event.
I’d encourage you to enter as I believe we can do well in the age categories following up on our County success in January, and noting that this event is generally less competitive than the road relay event in May.
If you do enter please let me know so that we can plan the different age-group teams etc.
For information, I will be entering the M35 to M44 team competition, but will run as an M45 in the individual race.
Please let me know if you have any concerns
