ROAD RUNNING ‘OPEN’ MEETING
The Midland Counties Road Running ‘Open’ Meeting scheduled for Monday 15th June has naturally fallen to the current Coronavirus pandemic and is postponed for the time being.
Once we are able to return to normal working conditions we will arrange for a date as soon as practicable. When held the meeting will be, amongst other things to elect members of the new committee, Chairman and Secretary.
Nominations for those two positions will need to have two proposers with a statement of not more than 250 words as to their suitability for the role to be made at least 28 days prior to the meeting.
Those statements will be displayed on the MCAA website and circulated to clubs that enter our Road Relays for their perusal prior to the meeting.
Further and fuller details will be promulgated as soon as we are in a position to do so.

STATEMENT REGARDING COMPETITION
At a meeting of the MCAA Management committee on Monday 16th March it was unanimously decided to cancel the 3rd and final Indoor open meeting of the season. The meeting will not be rescheduled. The 80% refund of entry fees as per the MCAA policy and conditions will apply. Please be patient as this will be a lengthy process to refund every entry individually.
MIDLAND TRACK AND FIELD LEAGUE – After Government, UKA and England Athletics announcements over the last two days the first two meetings of all divisions of the Midland Track and Field League have been postponed. Decisions on the remaining fixtures will be made later in the season when conditions and advice have been updated. Please keep an eye on the website and social media when more information will be given when known and appropriate.
SENIOR AND UNDER 20’s CHAMPIONSHIPS. 27th and 28th June -Entries for these Championships are not yet open. They will remain closed until the situation regarding their viability is known. Please keep an eye on the website and social media where any update will be posted as soon as they become known.
We are as you will appreciate having to work within very restrained conditions but will do all we can to get athletics back to the Midlands as soon as practicable, possibly at the end of this crisis. In the meantime please keep yourself safe throughout this period.
COVID-19 – STATEMENT
As from 4.30 pm today (20th March 2020) the Midland Counties Athletic Association Office will be closed until further notice. General business will still be conducted by staff working from home. Refunds due from our cancelled events will be made. This may take some time but will be processed as soon as possible.
All emails should all be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org and these too will be dealt with.
Telephone calls to the office number 0121 344 4201 will also be answered during normal office hours (8.30 am – 4.30 pm) Monday to Friday.
Postal mail will also be received and dealt with, but may take a little longer than normal.
The Office will re-open as soon as practicable when we are advised it is safe to resume normal working practices.
MCAA – STATEMENT
We have had some queries regarding the Midland Counties AA refund policy of paying 80% of entry fees. We as an organisation incur costs in arranging events that we cannot recover whether the event takes place or not.
To help offset that expenditure we retain 20%. A number of organisations retain a greater amount than we do. We endeavour to keep this as a minimum so as not to impact too much on the athlete.
Our refund is based on the full entry fee; we therefore bear the cost of our online provider and VAT so we scarcely cover our overall outlay. We hope that this clarifies the policy.
Thank you to all the sponsors of Midland Counties Athletic Association
