EAMA have been trying to find a venue for the annual Inter-Area Cross Country, scheduled to take place on 28 September, but notwithstanding the efforts of the officers, no venue has come forward. So, at very short notice, EMAC have agreed to host it again at Bury St Edmunds.
This leads to an update regarding selection for the England international cross country, to be held at Southport:
All the papers needed for this event are on both England masters and BMAF websites. Athletes may also be aware that an additional event has also been added to the selection criteria. This event is the inter area cross country challenge to be held at Bury St Edmunds on the 28th September. This will be used as just one element of the selection criteria that has already been listed. We are aware that the cross country challenge has been added very late, this is because there was doubt that it would go ahead due to finding a host venue this year. We are also aware that the application forms need to be in to area selectors the day before the event. Please rest assured that we will have a full set of results at the meeting. If however you would like your time and position added to your individual form then contact your area rep and they will add it for you.
