Eastern Vetsí Track and Field League 2015


This year the Eastern Veteransí League (EVAC) will be up and running again with meetings on Wednesdays through the summer. For those not familiar with it, the League works through a series of four regional leagues with eight teams qualifying for a final on 13 September. To compete in the final MMKAC will need to qualify and any athlete taking part in the Final must have competed in one of the qualifying matches. There are seven teams in our league: Bedford & County, Bedford Harriers, Biggleswade, Fairlands Valley Spartans, Luton, Marshall Milton Keynes and Saffron Striders. Competition for a final spot should be strong.


This year the location of the matches is designed to minimise travel:


Wednesday 6 May†††††††† Milton Keynes

Wednesday 3 June††††††† Bedford

Wednesday 1 July†††††††† Biggleswade

Wednesday 29 July†††††† Bedford

Sunday 13 September†† League Final at Bedford


The schedule includes most T&F events twice through the four matches and the final is a full programme. There are three age groups for Men and Women: Over 35, Over 50, and Over 60. The competition is both intense and friendly. There are opportunities for non-scorers in all meetings except in the Final. As always, officials, timekeepers and helpers are always welcome.


To take part in the league you must be a member of both MMKAC and EVAC.  EVAC membership is only £12 pa and also allows entry into other EVAC meetings including indoors events over the winter. Full details can be found on the EVAC website. http://www.evac.org.uk/memb.html
