NEWS FROM NORTHERN MASTERS AC REGARDING THEIR POSTAL HALF AND FULL MARATHON CHAMPIONSHIPS
Marathon and Half Marathon Championships 2024-5 -postal style
April 1st 2024 – March 31st 2025
Due to the obvious difficulties in organising Marathon and Half Marathon events for a small number of competitors NMAC have always combined them with an existing event. This can lead to difficulties in where the events are held and when they take place, as they may not always be convenient for our athletes that wish to take part.
NMAC are going to hold the above championships as a postal championship in the future. This will mean that our runners can then choose the event that they wish to enter and which best suits them in terms of location and date. Once your time has been recorded all you will need to do is send a copy of proof of event and finishing time along with your age and UK club to the Chair to enter the NMAC championships. Your entry will be logged and compared with others in your age / gender category so that medal positions can be decided. You can enter as many times as you like in either Championship but proof of time needs to be submitted with every entry.
