What you need to know:

  • In the long-term, there is the World Masters Championships in Tampere, Finland in July. I encourage our athletes to compete at the continental level with this in view. 
  • Regardless of the results, we are all winners by virtue of deciding to participate when it would be rather beneficial to sit back and enjoy our sunset years.
  • Once a runner, always a runner it seems and all competitors deserve a pat on the back for daring to do what many would shy away from in their old age.
