This year, the national championships will be held in conjunction with the 50th YMCA Canberra Half Marathon on Sunday 26 May in Canberra, a little earlier than last year, but hopefully with a chance for better weather!
Running in conjunction with the YMCA 50th anniversary event, we expect to attract a big field of quality athletes with much competition, and PBs and records likely on the fast course. The bitumen bike path winds its way through the picturesque foreshores and is well serviced by toilets and drink stations.
All entries are online via the YMCA Canberra Half-Marathon entry portal, and early bird entries close midnight on 28 April. To enter, go through the YMCA Half Marathon entry screens, then enter your AMA details and select the AMA Half Marathon registration option. All AMA Athletes are automatically entered into the YMCA race and are also eligible for YMCA medals, so it's two half marathons for little more than the price for one!
We would be most grateful for your support through sharing the details of the half marathon with your members (flyer attached and more information is available on the ACTMA website). We look forward to seeing your club represented at the 2019 Australian Masters Athletics Half-Marathon Championships in Canberra in May.
Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to be in touch.
