Masters (Vets)

BRITISH MASTERS

 

As Burnden has such strong group of Vets runners we encourage all over 35's to take part in the Masters and join the Northern Masters AC, what is it you ask?, hopefully the below will explain...

The British Masters Athletics Federation (BMAF) is a group of geographically located clubs covering the whole of Britain & N. Ireland. Our remit is to encourage, organise and regulate athletics in 5-year age groups for Masters/Veteran athletes - men and women aged 35 years and over. Whatever your current level of fitness or age, there is a place for you in the true Corinthian spirit. Whether you would like to try the long jump, throwing events like the javelin or discus, or run any distance from the 60m indoor right up to the marathon, cross country, race walking or relays, you will be competing against athletes in your own age category and older, right across the whole spectrum of the sport.

You can still retain your membership of your UK:Athletics club or other sport and join a BMAF club to get extra specialist competition. You will have opportunities to meet socially with other like-minded people. You may have higher targets, the biennial European, World Track & Field, Indoor Championships, or the European Road Races/Walks are all open to you and you can travel far and wide with the large and very successful British Masters.

Burnden's nearest BMAF club is the Northern Masters AC. The Northern Masters (formally Veterans), founded in 1968, is an Area Club of the British Masters Athletic Federation and England Athletics Masters Association and covers the area of Cheshire, Cumbria, North Derbyshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, and Yorkshire. 

The club provides friendly runs and competition over road, trail, cross country and track and field athletics for those over the age of 35.  You are welcome to come along as a guest to any Monthly Run or Track & Field League meeting; club championships are reserved for fully paid-up members only although guests may enter but ineligible for medals.  The club offers first and second claim and social membership, and is affiliated to England Athletics and British Masters and England Athletics Masters. A membership form and joining instructions are contained on the membership page on this site. As a member you will receive a quarterly club newsletter and a regular magazine from British Masters each containing news, articles and details of forthcoming fixtures.
