Friendly competition is what we are about, whether you are a runner, jumper, thrower or prefer road and cross country, we aim to cater for all disciplines.
It is not often that you get a chance to compete against athletes in your own age range, very often you have to be content with Open meetings where the competition can be challenging and possibly even a little intimidating.
That’s where we come in, providing meetings where you can challenge yourself against your peers in a friendly no pressure environment. Often our meetings are as much a Social event as a competition, where you can meet old friends, enjoy a catch up and share injury stories, but don’t think for a minute the competition is not taken seriously!
We arrange outdoor events in different locations across the North of England, sometimes on an evening, sometimes a full day and some indoor competitions. In accordance with BMAF rules, athletes are banded in 5 year age groups from age 35 up to 100.
We have annual championship events, where medals are awarded (to NMAC members only) and age related medals for the best performances at some other events. As an NMAC member you can also compete at National and International level.
There are many fine athletes who enjoy competition well past an age where others might prefer to just put their feet up. That is the point, the joy and adrenaline rush we get from training, challenging ourselves and competing – why ever stop? There is always a new event to try and what better environment than a Masters competition, amongst friends.
If you are already a member of NMAC, thanks for your support. If you haven’t joined yet, why not? See our member’s page for how to join. Whatever you choose, as a Masters athlete, you will always be welcomed at any of our events, so come along see what we are all about.
