Mpumalanga Cross Country Team 2015

Good day all Friends

Klere bestellingAgain I want to congratulate all our athletes who is part of the Mpumalanga Cross Country Team for 2015.  It took me and Hellouise a long time to finalise the list but we tried to ensure the data is correct.  I want to ask everyone to check for me again if your Name, Surname and ID number is correct as it is on your ID book or Birthdate Certificate.  ASA control it each and every name as it is on the National system and if the data is incorrect, they will not register you on the system for the SA Championships.  I just want to highlight a few issues:

As mentioned, check all you details and make sure it is correct as it is on you birth certificate or your ID Book.

All changes need to be done at the latest Friday, 28 August.  No changes will be make after then.

If you want to withdraw from the team, please make sure you inform us officially. Athletes who only stay away will derogate yourself for future team selection.

Athletes entered as individual runners, is marked with a  *.  These athletes must run in their school or club attire, they are not allow to run in Provincial clothes.

If an athlete wants to enter as a individual runner, it needs to happen through the Province.  To enter as an individual runner is not obvious.  As you see in the Team Manual there is certain conditions under which we will enter an athlete as an individual runner.

Athletes must pay their entry fee of R30 before next week Monday.  No athlete will receive their number if the entry fee is not paid.

It stays the responsibility of the athlete to ensure the data on the team list is correct.

Mpumalanga Championships Results

Good afternoon all Cross Country Friends

Attach are the results of the 2015 MPU Championships.  Congratulations to every athlete who gave their best.  To my team who helped to make the event a special day for all our athletes, thank you very much for your time and effort.  It was really a world class event.

The final Mpumalanga Team list for the 2015 SA Championships will follow soon. Most of the athletes already received their letters on Saturday but there can be a few additions after Saturday.  For those who did not make the Mpumalanga Team but consider to enter as an Individual athlete need to reply via Mpumalanga Athletics.  Keep in mind the following rules that were put in place by ASA:

ASA will allow individual entries to accommodate deserving athletes who are not included in provincial teams for various reasons under the following conditions:

i) Only South African citizens will be allowed to enter as individuals.

ii) Provinces have first call on an athlete. An Athlete selected for a province must take part for that province and may not enter as an individual.

iii) Athletes who are not selected for their province may enter as individuals, but must enter via their province and compete in their official club attire or neutral colours with no advertising on the clothing. No sponsored kit which is not their club’s registered kit will be permitted.

iv) Individual athletes must be registered for the competition by their province, must have a 2015 license and must be in good standing with the province.

v) The province must motivate all individual entries, providing reasons why the athlete/s are not included in their provincial team.

vi) Provinces cannot enter individual athletes in a category if they have reached the quota of 18 athletes per age category.

I also attach the Team Manual that was provided by ASA with all the necessary arrangements for the day (updated list of accommodation also attached).

Mpumalanga Cross Country Championships 2015 Update

Good day all Cross Country friends

We are again at the end of another successful 2015 cross country year.  We met new friends and the old friends were all there with new enthusiasm.

Find attach the participant list as well as the program for the Mpumalanga Championships.  I just want to highlight a few points:

All athletes are welcome to take part on the day but only athletes who qualify according to the criteria will be considered for the Mpumalanga Team.  The main criteria was the minimum of 4 leagues which an athlete needed to participate in.

An athlete must participate in the event he or she qualified for.  An athlete will not be considered if he or she took part in a wrong event.

For an athlete to be considered he or she must take part in the Mpumalanga Championships.

I attach the participation list of 2015. Please look at the list and if there is any discrepancies, please let me know by Email.  The information was used as I received it and there can be a few mistakes on the list.

It is the responsibility of an athlete and his coach to make sure their document from the school league if they want to use it, is handed in before Saturday to conform to the minimum criteria.

Carefully look at the program to ensure you conform to the rules for the day.

Athletes of 30 years and older must use their age tags.  There will be referees on the day who will look at all the rules for the day.

Many Regards
