Cardiac Arrest at Masters Meeting

Stephen Curry, an active member of Elswick Harriers, the North East of England’s oldest athletics club, suffered a cardiac arrest recently at a North East Masters Athletics Association track and field league meeting. The ever popular Stephen had just finished competing in the 1500m event at Monkton Stadium, Jarrow in Tyne & Wear when he collapsed with a cardiac arrest. Fellow athletes were shocked to witness Stephen, known as Steve little legs fighting for his life at the stadium. Fortunately for this jovial athlete two other local athletes who were also competing were on hand to come to Stephen’s assistance and ultimately save his life.

When we learnt that some of our members were already paying £7-99 for Athletics Weekly we could not rest.  Inspired by wanting the very best offer ,we contacted AW and to our delight this was their response.

 Athletics Weekly  have agreed to run a new BMAF AW Subs offer that beats £7-99  and is not only exclusive to BMAF members but  is also the cheapest AW subs rate in the market. 

BMAF Subs Offer : £7.49 payable by Direct Debit.

 Athletics Weekly recognises the growing importance of Masters Athletics and the BMAF want to play a part in this magazine which in our opinion is the voice of athletics in Great Britain.
