The English Masters XC Inter-area Challenge is on our doorsteps this year.....in Bournemouth

This all-England National Masters XC Challenge event is being held at Bournemouth this year - conveniently local and a great chance to toe the line with some of the best Masters athletes in the country. 
NB This event is for Vets/Masters athletes who are members of one of the English Area Masters clubs (most WADAC Vets are South West Vets but we have some Southern Counties and some Vets AC).  Generally it is cheap to be a 2nd claim member of a Vets club and so to have access to all sorts of Masters competitions - such as this one.  If you want more info please speak to Joy Radford, Rachel Byers or Steve Oliver. 
You enter yourself via the BMAF website, turn up and run (in your WADAC vest is fine) - the "team" score is then the Top10 (on a % age performance basis) male/female from your regional Vets club.   Sounds too complicated ?  Just turn up and run for fun, someone else will worry about the scores !
