Competing for Wales: Masters Road Racing Opportunities

27/02/2023 00:00, I Mewn Blog / Club Notice Board / Road /

Building on the success of two road Masters Internationals in 2022 at Tenby and Bristol, there will be more opportunities for Master athletes to represent Wales in 2023 across all distances from 5km through to marathon.

The International fixtures will be against England, and hopefully some of the other Home International countries. The opportunities are as follows:

Distance Event Date
5km Mid Chesire 5km 25 August
10km Chester 10km 12 March
Half Marathon Chester Half Marathon 21 May
Marathon Chester Marathon 8 October

Teams of 6 male and 6 athletes (with four to score in each) per 10 year age groups will be picked per event provided that the minimum standards have been achieved.

These opportunities are being provided by Welsh Athletics and athletes have to be eligible to compete for Wales and registered athletes in Wales. It is expected that athletes competing for Wales would take part in at least one Welsh Championship in the preceding or current year.
