The CSAA (Civil Service Athletic Association) arrange an annual calendar of athletics championships in which HASSRA athletes compete on an individual and team basis against athletes from other Government Departments.
HASSRA enters a National Representative Team into all these events and a certain standard is required for selection.
For example, in the case of the 10k Road Race, Cross Country and Road Relays the following guidelines can be applied:
- Senior (under 35 years) 40.00m 10k
- Veterans (35 years and over) 48.00m 10k
- Senior (under 35 years) 45.00m 10k
- Veterans (35 years and over) 53.00m 10k
However, the Team Manager has the discretion to select athletes who show the potential to better these requirements (and subject to budgetary limitations).

As the events are open to all CSSC (Civil Service Sports Council) Sports and Leisure members, HASSRA athletes not meeting these standards can apply to their Regional CSSC for funding. If there are any problems, please contact Nick Hume
If you think you have something to offer and enjoy athletics why not join our team?
Race Walkers, Track and Field Athletes are particularly required to strengthen the squad.
