Vets section

The YVAA multi terrain Grand prix races are a good place to start with the Vets; about 5 – 6 miles long they vary from almost pancake flat as at York to quite hilly (!!!), like our own from Neiley. Races can be entered on the day, only cost £5.00 to enter, cater for all age ranges and abilities, from 35 to 80+. At most races there is also free food and a hot drink after the race. Prizes are given for all 5 year age ranges, depending on entry, with several spot prizes as well.

If anyone would like to try out these races next year and would like a lift please see Rob (on the desk) at the club or by email. Details of all the races we compete in can be found at www.yvaa.org as well as from Rob and the Vets Notice Board at the Clubhouse.

Club records (women 35-65 race times - top ten runners and men 35-75 race times - top ten runners)

The Vets section is one of the largest and best supported sections of the club. We compete in YVAA Grand Prix multi – terrain races, Road Relays Championships, Cross Country Championships, Fell Championships, the many Road Championship races and The Track and Field Champs. We also send teams to the National Road Relays at Sutton Park each year. Road Relay and Cross Country

Championships are particularly well supported with 30+ runners often turning out for the teams. When we get a strong team out we are always in contention for medals and have won silver medals at the BMAF National Road Relays in recent years as well as many Yorkshire medals in all events.

Winning medals is great for the individuals, teams and club of course but is not the only reason for taking part. Without the non 'A team' runners these events would be not only a lot less enjoyable as a team but virtually empty as an event. We welcome all vets into our teams no matter what standard so if you're over 35 and fancy a run out please join us.

Vets records

For some time I've been trying to collect your times for distances from 5K to a Marathon. While I have managed to cajole some information out of a few people there are still loads of runners that have not given me any times. As you will see (on the MEMBER's Page) we've posted those. Almost any time supplied is likely to get in the top ten simply because we have so few contributors. So why not let me have your times and see yourself in the top ten for your age group; email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thanks.
