    NEMAA – (Vets) League Meetings @ Monkton Stadium
    Jul 31 @ 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.

    We currently have a good number of athletes who would qualify and it would be great if we can drum up enough interest in these events from our ‘veteran’ athletes to come and ‘have a go’, we will be there to support you, so don’t feel intimidated, it’s friendly, fun and a bit of a laugh.  Even if you have never competed at some of these events, don’t worry, neither have many others.   There is a club league tally over the 6 events and with a good turnout each Monday, Birtley AC could do really well this year!, but we need you to come and have a try. You will be placed in heats along with people of same pace and ability where possible.
