More about the the Exurbia SA Masters 800m Event

This is a very exciting distance-handicapped 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 is essential that SAMA gets the handicapping correct, and this is based on the Bay Sheffield Qualifier races held by SAMA as part of our normal track program in the first part of the 2021-22 summer season.
