More about the event

This is a very exciting event with the names of all athletes being broadcast in front of an enthusiastic crowd. It is a privilege for SA Masters Athletes to have been involved in this event for many years now, and it is vital that we put on an exciting, highly competitive race to remain so into the future. This is a rare opportunity for SA Masters Athletics to publicly showcase its provision for masters athletes.

Thus it was essential that SAMA had the handicapping correct, and this was based on the Bay Sheffield Qualifier races that were held by SAMA as part of our normal track program at the start of the summer season. The final handicaps are shown in the Results below
