Male and female athletes age 35 or over are classed as Masters and as such can enter and compete in the track and field league and regional and national road and cross country championships in their own age categories. Our objectives at Birchfield Harriers are to keep all masters informed of events taking place throughout the year and to encourage our masters members to represent their club and perform to their potential in their own particular age group in track and field, road and cross country races.
The club competes in the Midland Veterans Track and Field League – South Division.
There are events for both men and women in four age categories at each league meeting and in the cup final. The age groups are 35 to 39, 40 to 49, 50 to 59 and 60 and over. The events vary from meeting to meeting, with the younger age groups having more events. Details of this year’s programme can be found under the masters section under competitions.
