Road Running

EMAC’s Road Runners are predominately – but not exclusively – first claim members of running and athletic clubs in the region with quite a few of the “Track & Field” athletes who take part.

EMAC has a Road Running Series which takes place annually, based upon WAVA/WMA percentages from that year’s nominated races which will usually be a series of seven differing distance events in the 5k – half marathon range. Selected races will also be nominated as Championship events at which medals will be presented to the top 3 in each age category.

Because EMAC is an affiliated club of England Athletics and UK Athletics, we are also lucky enough to receive a club entry in the London Marathon each year and the committee decides how to award this place. For the last few years this has been “by draw” from those members who apply for the place – details of the draw will normally be communicated in the Autumn seeking applications and the lucky winner is selected at the end of December for the race the following April.

In common with the other disciplines, EMAC encourages the road runners to take part in the various international competitions each year (open to all members) and also flags up events based upon a selection process where members generally vie for a place to represent England or Great Britain. Watch the News items for information about these events.
