England Athletics Age Group Masters

England Athletics Age Group Masters

England Athletics recognises that a significant amount of the membership of road running clubs is made up of runners aged over thirty-five years. The Age Group Masters competition programme recognises and rewards the significant contribution that these runners make to our sport.

Through their annual rolling programme of qualifying events and representative opportunities, they provide Masters runners with a friendly competition format and the chance to earn themselves an England Age Group Masters vest.

England Masters development webinars are open to all runners who want to make the most of their training. Find full details of the opportunities available here: https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/england-competitions/age-group-masters-competition/
