The object of our club is to encourage and promote masters athletics, general fitness and to provide opportunities for training and competition.
Membership is open to men & women 30 years and older.
We have a comprehensive annual program that provides the opportunity for members to participate in weekly runs and walks, as well as track and field competition. There are also training groups that meet during the week. We also organize a variety of friendly social events.
The format of events allows contestants to be as competitive or social as they choose. Competition is in gender and age groups which advance in five-yearly increments starting at W30 and M30.
The club is run by a small committee and is dependent on many volunteers such as race directors, marshalls, time-recorders and other helpers.
