Qualifying Races / Entry

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.

Invitations for entry to the SAMA Bay Sheffield 800m Invitational Race have now sent to all qualifiers by Neil Hayford.

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