    Q, Presentations made to M70 category Runners.
    No Presentations, etc whatsoever! for M75+ Why?? Especially since you have a timings for the 75+ agg category??? Please explain? This Age Discrimination is not encouraging or acceptable to 75+ Runners, ( this apparant age Discrimination) is no longer acceptable!! These Runners should be honoured at such
    presentations.
    If only as an example to Younger Runners, that Running can continue into their 70s/80S.
    So please! Include presentations for us OLD GUYS. 75+
    It makes for good public relations. To discriminate against M 75+ & Ladies 75+ sends out the wrong message to the Running community & Society.
    Awards for 70s Fine👍 Awards for 75+ Year Old Runners . Legal & Natural Justice says YES,

      Hi Frank,

      Firstly well done on your sensational time on Sunday; 2.22 in that wind was a damn fine effort for anyone, let alone a youngster like yourself.

      We spent a lot of time deciding the age categories and looked at many other races to check we were at least in line, if not better than the norm for a race of that size. We do have to cut-off somewhere and felt 70 was reasonable. (Indeed we had no women over 75)
      I suppose this is no consolation to you having scooped the category win and expected some podium glory. We hate to see anyone have a negative experience from the race and so I shall look pleadingly at our club treasurer to see if we can send you a little voucher in recognition of your run.

      I do hope you return next year and that in three years’ time you are cleaning up the M80 category.

      Well done again on a great run.

      David Hindmarsh
      Club Chairperson
