Age Group Masters opportunities

The life of a Masters athlete starts at age 35 – opening up a world of opportunities for athletes to compete in Masters age group competition in athletics and running.

England Athletics Age Group Masters programme

The England Athletics Age Group Masters programme recognises that a significant number of road running clubs are made up of runners over 35 years old.

Our Masters programme offers England Athletics affiliated runners, age 35+, an annual rolling programme of qualifying events and representative opportunities at 10k, Half Marathon and Marathon distances.
