Plans well under way for British & Irish Masters CC Champs, scheduled for Swansea on Sat 17th Nov. Firstly apologies to Emer McGee who was originally omitted as 1st Reserve on F50s team. Selections were made on the results provided immediately after the race. To date we have had no withdrawals on any of the Women’s Teams, so remain same as initially selected.
A number of changes have occurred though in the Men’s Teams, most notably 2017 British & Irish Masters CC Champ, Brian Maher, who, reluctantly had to withdraw. Please see attached revised Teams, MALE TEAM HERE FEMALE TEAM HERE as currently stand. Any Athlete(s) who has not yet booked accommodation, please go to the link provided: https://www.incorporatevenues.com/public/b/1902/ &secure without further delay as only few rooms left at agreed price. We have also endeavoured to match up Athletes, who are travelling alone, but wish to share room, with any other in likewise situation. Anyone else out there who is in this position, please advise us & we will see if we can still pair you off.
Also any Athlete who ordered singlet, these will be distributed out in Swansea. Unfortunately, as already advised, we were unable to obtain shorts on this occasion from AAI, so please come prepared.
