Bay Sheffield Carnival - SAMA 800m Invitational Event

Bay Sheffield 2018

South Australian Masters Athletics is invited to stage a distance handicapped 800m at the Bay Sheffield Carnival at Colley Reserve, Glenelg, which runs from 26 - 28 December 2018.

The 800m Masters event has been CANCELLED due to the hot weather and change of program.

The Hot Weather policy of SAAL requires that the program be changed if the predicted maximum temperature is 38 degrees or above. Unfortunately this has resulted in the cancellation of the 800m Masters event on Thursday 27 December.

If you have any questions please contact Lisa Attenborough.

The SAMA event is coordinated by Lisa Attenborough, and distance handicapped by Neil Hayford.

The SAMA event at the Bay Sheffield is sponsored by the Scout Outdoor Centre, which provides Prize vouchers for the first 3 home;
1st $100     2nd $60    3rd $40

There is no cost of entry.

More about the event

This is a very exciting event with the names of all athletes being broadcast in front of an enthusiastic crowd. It is a privilege for SA Masters Athletes to have been involved in this event for many years now, and it is vital that we put on an exciting, highly competitive race to remain so into the future. This is a rare opportunity for SA Masters Athletics to publicly showcase its provision for masters athletes.

Thus it is essential that SAMA gets the handicapping correct, and this has been based on the Bay Sheffield Qualifier races that were held by SAMA as part of our normal track program at the start of the summer season.

Full information about the Bay Sheffield Carnival can be found at the South Australian Athletic League website, and a full program is available at the SAAL Team App website.
