England Athletics recognises that a significant amount of the membership of road running clubs is made up of runners aged over thirty-five years. The Age Group Masters competition programme recognises and rewards the significant contribution that these runners make to our sport. Through an annual rolling programme of qualifying events and representative opportunities we provide Masters runners with a friendly competition format and the chance to earn themselves an England Age Group Masters vest.
Please note the masters races at Great Bristol 10km and Fleet Half Marathon have been cancelled. If you have already qualified for one of these two races our qualification will be carried over to next year. We are working with the race organisers to see if additional places will come available and if so we will hold one qualification race this autumn (race TBC) and we will update these pages if this is possible. We understand this will be frustrating for those we wished to qualify this year but with the current uncertainty with the autumn racing calendar and with athletes already qualified and entered we believe this is the best solution under difficult circumstances.
