The following awards for the 2016/17 League season will be presented at the AGM:

  • Under 20 / Senior / Vet Women
  • Under 20 / Senior / Vet Men

Registration of athletes

A reminder please that lists of competing athletes are needed for our records. We need to have correctly spelt names, dates of birth, age categories the athlete is running in and EA Registration Numbers for everyone intending to run for your club.

Also to remind clubs that they need to be affiliated to England Athletics before they can join the League.

On a personal note, a reminder about the Veteran age categories that we use:

  • Men:   M40, M50, M60 and M70
  • Women:   W35, W45, W55 and W65

In other words, ten year categories from when the athlete becomes a Veteran.

Thanks
