I’ve posted more than 500 photos (well, 501 to be exact) of the Masters Inter-Area match sponsored each year by England Athletics here on my web site.
As I say on the site itself, this event used to be one of the top meetings in the UK Masters Athletics calendar. It seems to have slipped quite a long way from being so now, in my view. Teams were small, with more athletes than usual competing out of their own event, and many doubling and trebling up. There were some good performances, including two or three British Masters age group records, but the overall standard was not very high really. If the event is to remain viable and be a showcase for Masters Athletics to the likes of the sponsors, England Athletics, things need to change and Area clubs need to start taking full teams of their best athletes.
