Opportunity to represent Wales at the BMAF Masters Cross Country International
Welsh Athletics will be selecting Welsh Teams to compete at the BMAF Masters Cross Country International taking place in Glasgow on Saturday 11th November 2023
As usual the Welsh Team Selectors will meet in the middle of October to review cross country performances (Gwent League and North Wales Cross Country League) but as usual the Selectors will also take into consideration other relevant performances including results from the Cardiff 10k (3/9), Swansea 10k (17/9), the Helena Tipping 10k (23/7) and the Caernarfon 10km(20/8). We will also take into account results from the 2022 Welsh Cross Country Champs and last year’s Masters International in Dublin. We are keen to hear results from athletes not involved in either the Gwent or North Wales cross country leagues.
Whilst thepowerof10 website is a fantastic resource for collecting performances, it doesn’t always identify when athletes are eligible to represent Wales, and some of the obscure races are also missed, so we would be grateful if you would let us know of any key performances that you have achieved that may help the selectors in choosing the best teams.
As usual we are also keen to know about any new Masters. It is particularly difficult to spot those athletes who are approaching Masters stage, so if you have any athletes within your club who you feel may be interested in representing their country, then let us know some details or pass on our contact details to them.
There are teams of 6 men for the M35. 40, 45, & 50 and teams of 4 men for the 55, 60, 65, 70 & 75+ age groups. For the women it is teams of 4 for all age groups: 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70 & 75+.
If you are interested, please let us know as soon as possible if you wish to be considered for selection. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org It makes a big difference when it comes to selection if we know you are interested.
We look forward to hearing from you and a successful season for Wales.
