NEMAA – (Vets) League Meetings @ Monkton Stadium
Jun 5 @ 6:00 pm
The North East Masters Athletics Association (NEMAA) or Vets League is a very friendly, low key meeting, designed to encourage the more “mature” athletes” to have a go at track and field disciplines instead of the routine road and cross-country races they usually compete in.

At £3 for up to three events it’s also a very cheap way of having a go at various events. New members need to join NEMAA by paying (Before January £10) £20 

Application form can be found here (this is for the calendar year of 2017). Further details of the 6 events can be found on the NEMAA website.
