Happy New Year to all NMACers!!

We hope you have all had a good Christmas, and a good year with NMAC or whatever else you have been up to!!

In 2020 we would love to hear more of your stories, event reports and see more of your pictures!! We would also like to share more of your club events and your content so please post them in the FB Group  or send content to me - you all know how to get hold of me!!

Look out for our events, we hope to have more than ever this year as so many more of you are getting involved - and we would also like more club advocates to spread the word! Drop me a line if you would be happy sharing NMAC events and news in your club!!

The Newsletter.......

So the last paper newsletter went out to more people than planned - this was an admin error on our part and we hope you were not offended to be bombarded with paper just before Christmas!!

For those who did not know we try to get everything out online before the paper newsletter comes out once a quarter but the cost of posting is the biggest hit to the club and we are trying to keep that down. Please take the time to click "Manage your preferences" at the bottom of this email and select "I do not require a copy of the newsletter by post" to help us keep membership prices down!!

5k Road Champs......

This year we again held the 5k road champs at the University of Leeds Brownlee Cycle Circuit, and it was massively well supported by you guys despite being on the same day as the International Cross Country over in Southport!!

There were some seriously impressive times as well as a great atmosphere and possibly the longest presentation ever due to the high number of entries!! Thank you to all who came!!!



2020 Fixtures

So the stats do not lie - you guys have been supporting our events in bigger numbers than ever and for that we thank you! The feedback at events has been great, from the massive increase in the 5k road champs, the fantastic Track and Field champs to the open meets! We have had a massive influx in first timers on the track thanks to our association with Try The Track which has seen marathon runners throwing the shot and discus and running 100m this year!

2020 Committee

Your club needs help!! We have regrettably lost our very capable Secretary Helen due to family commitments and we need more of our members to get involved.

Most of the roles do not involve much time or effort but if you love what we do and want to help grow Masters Athletics then please stick your hand up!!

We meet once a quarter which is not too much. We will tailor the role to suit your capability and interest but would just appreciate the help!! Just give me a shout!!

Club Runs and advocates.....

One thing I would like to do is bring back the Club runs and socials - this needs someone to organise an evening get together with a run and social and I am looking for club members to invite other NMACers to join them and put on something in as many areas as possible.

In addition I have about 30 club advocates now in our area who share our events etc within their clubs and I am looking for more - if you are happy to share NMAC and Masters info in you club then drop me a line!!

Apart from that, all that remains is to wish you all a very Happy New Year, and thank you for your interest or support for Masters Athletics and the Northern Masters Athletics Club in 2019.

Let's keep the growth going in 2020 - and we hope you have a great New Year!!
