SVHC athletes compete for Scotland at the Masters International XC and now there’s a chance to compete in the BMAF Virtual Road Relays
Scottish Masters athletes are being invited to compete in a British Virtual Road Relays via individual runs at any point during six days in June.
The British Masters Athletics Federation (BMAF) are organising the event – which features solo runs over the 5k distance by each club member – from 14-20 June.
Entry is free with an option to make a charity donation to MacMillan Nurses and the Scottish Veteran Harriers Club are supporting this UK-wide event and would encourage members to get involved and compete.
The BMAF event will now replace the SVHC Scottish Masters 5K road champs – traditionally taking place in Clydebank around this time of year – with these now Virtual Championships in the various five year age bands.
All runs will be solo and within Government guidelines over social distancing, running close to your home, elevation etc (along the same lines as our own scottishathletics Virtual Challenges). As with our events; evidence of the run on Strava/Garmin is submitted to Open Track leaderboards.
Age brackets are based on your age on June 20.
As this is a UK-wide event, Masters for this event can be V35 and above (usually in Scotland in road and cross country events it is V40 and above).
The number of stages for the BMAF Virtual Road Relays is set-up as follows:
M35-44: Six stages
M45-54, W35-44: Four stages
M55-64, M65-74; M75+, W45-54, W55-64, W65-74; W75+: Three stages.
Individual entries also welcome.
