2013 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this website.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

News to be announced shortly


Please look out for forthcoming announcements on changes to the 2014 relays. Minor but hopefully an improvement.

National Masters Open Road Relays 2013 – Results


Once again a very successful and enjoyable day was had by all at the 26th National Masters Road Relays which took place last Saturday at Sutton Park, UK. Result links and photograph links can be seen on the dedicated page, short link http://tinyurl.com/mtnhcvq 

I make no apologies for the slight delay in posting these because the small, hard worked team of organisers used Sunday as ‘chill out’ time.

I must once again thank all the marshals who turned out for us, some at the last minute, without whose help, the event just could not go ahead. To all the officials, who support us willingly when they are under pressure from other events and to the Birmingham City Council Events Team who again support us each year.

It is very nice when participants come and say how much they enjoy coming to Sutton Park and any feedback, positive or negative, through the comments on these pages will be very much appreciated. It’s needless to point out that everyone involved will be looking forward to the 27th staging of the event, the 20th at Sutton Park, next year in 2014.

Final Course Inspection

The final course inspection took place this afternoon. There are a few areas where extreme care will have to be taken. Owing to the recent rain and high winds there are areas where mud has been deposited on the course. Efforts will be made to clear these to a minimum but athletes should be aware of the slippery conditions.

Only the team packs now to be completed!

More Final Preparations!


I have sorted out all the medals into the appropriate age categories, all ready for the presentations a week today. Hopefully the MMAC Chair, Irene Nicholls,  and President, Marcia Smedley, will be able to find them easily and not get mixed up!
