Inter-Area Challenge 2023: Representing Welsh Masters at Track & Field at Nuneaton on 6th August.
News update from Brett Davis.
Would you like the opportunity to represent Welsh Masters’ at Track and Field?
The next inter-area event is outdoors and is on 6th August in Nuneaton. We are really keen to field the strongest Welsh Masters’ team that we can, and we know that we have a lot of talent around here. We did brilliantly during the indoor event in February, and it is time to build on that success. To do that, we need to have the largest pool from which to select.
Selection will be made over the next few weeks and will be based on recent results on power of 10 (2021, 2022, 2023). We would like to get the provisional women’s team out at the end of June so that people can make travel arrangements.
The provisional men’s team will be ready by mid-July. For those events where there are no current performances on power of 10 then we will be looking for volunteers so let us know if you’d like to be considered for something more unusual such as pole vault or race walk.
Many thanks to those of you who have already responded to emails about the women’s team - the team is shaping up nicely. If you have already replied to Eleri, then there is no need respond again.
For all of the men, and for the women who have not yet been in touch with Eleri, then now is your chance. Please get in touch with us by the end of May and include your preferred events.
