The England Age Group Masters 10k opportunity is once again incorporated within the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k for 26th May 2019. Those runners who achieve selection will get to wear the specially designed England Masters vest and will be allocated a front of race starting pen just behind the elite starters.
Following the three qualifying races which kicked off in December 2018 with the Telford 10k, England Athletics are pleased to announce the team selected to represent England Masters at the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k on Sunday 26 May.
Competition at each of the three qualifying races – Telford, Chichester and Chester 10k – was of a high standard with the best of club age group runners turning out in force to contest for places on the team. In addition to these qualifiers, a small number of runners who were denied the opportunity to qualify due to the cancellation of events last winter due to the snow were also added to the team following the rescheduling of these races. A team of 168 runners from V35 through to V75 age groups will compete as an England Team against a team of Celtic Nations runners.
