Opportunity for Masters Athletes to compete for England
England Athletics has partnered with five of the country’s best marathon races including The Brighton Marathon to create a unique opportunity for England Athletics registered runners to qualify to represent their country at Masters age group level.
Starting in autumn 2016, England Athletics registered athletes who are competing in the Bournemouth, Chester, Yorkshire, Brighton and Greater Manchester marathons can earn the right to represent England in a target marathon in autumn 2017.
Each of the five marathons will act as a qualifying race, with the top five EA-registered runners in each master’s age category at every race, who have opted in to the qualifying system, guaranteeing themselves a place in the England team.
If you already have your own place in the Brighton Marathon and wish to be considered for selection to compete for England then please contact England Athletics at www.englandathletics.org/masters-age-group-athletes-to-represent-england-at-marathon
If you do not have your own place in the Brighton Marathon, and your club has already allocated its places to other club members please also contact England Athletics and they will arrange for you to receive an opportunity to enter the Brighton Marathon.
Prizes will be awarded to the fastest V35 (Women only), V40, V45, V50, V55, V60, V65 and V70 Men and Women finishers at the 2017 Brighton Marathon. Prizes will be awarded based upon the finisher Chip Time, and not the Gun Time.
