Becoming a Masters Athlete

Masters Athletics requires no special membership status other than a qualifying age. Once an athlete is 35 years of age they are automatically classified as a ‘master’ and eligible to be considered for any masters’ trophy or award. Masters athletics is worldwide and there are world records for Masters in every athletics event.

Masters competitions take into account the age of athletes and make divisions within the competition so that age does not rule out success. For example a 50 year old women will be classifies W50 whilst a 65 year old man will be M65. For more information go to: www.bmaf.info
