MABAC

Following recent discussions about the lack of team competitions for the "less-competitive" senior runners, it has been decided that the Club will join the MABAC league for 2017. Quoting from the MABAC website (http://www.mabac.org.uk/): "MABAC arranges a series of races throughout the year, particularly aimed at the fun runner. Most are cross-country events held on Sunday mornings in some beautiful parts of the Surrey countryside. Afterwards, runners have been known to find a local pub."

For those interested in the history of the name, MABACdates from 1977 when the League was first set up. The prime mover was Alan Blatchford, who died in September 1980. He organized a running group at the British Aircraft Corporation works in Weybridge (now British Aerospace). Ralph Henley brought in runners from Matthew Arnold School, Ashford. Hence MA-BAC.
