The YVAA is an association constituted (Constitution can be viewed below) to promote running events for veteran athletes in Track & Field, Road, Multi-terrain, Fell and Cross Country.
It caters for women and men over 35 years of age on the day of competition under UK Athletics rule No 107(7). Membership (affiliation form and fees on Membership page) is open to members of athletic clubs affiliated to England Athletics within Yorkshire or individuals who are members of an athletic club affiliated to England Athletics and who live within the boundaries of Yorkshire. Yorkshire means North, South, East and West Yorkshire.
We organise up to 10 Grand Prix multi-terrain races per year and Championship Races at Cross Country, Track & Field, 5k, 10k, 10 miles, Half-marathon, 15 miles and Fell. In addition we organise a Road Relay Championship. Details of all of these can be found on this website.
Our Grand Prix races frequently have over 200 runners and are a great social as well as competitive outing. Each one is organised as a specialist veteran race by one of our associated clubs and we try to spread them out across our region as much as possible.
The Championship races are mostly incorporated within Open events which are being run anyway. However they are nonetheless enjoyable.
