Non-members are welcome to join us in a jog or walk around the track and, if they wish, take part in events once or twice before deciding to join. If you have never competed before, you will find our informal style of competition a very easy way to learn without embarrassment. Our meetings usually comprise a sprint, a walk, a middle distance and a distance race. We also cater for field games at some venues. Men and women compete together in the majority of events. As a self-help organisation, all members take a turn in such things as judging, starting, writing results, suppers, etc.
Some venues organise special events, which usually include both athletic and social activities, and invite the other venues to participate with them in these inter-venue events. On a broader level, the masters come together for state, national and world athletic carnivals which offer great opportunities for travel and friendship combined with athletic endeavour. Further detail on venue activities is available. . . . >> more
Having joined, you are then a member of the Victorian Masters Athletic Club Incorporated and can attend any venue you wish and compete in any competitions that the venue or the club may run. You do not become a member of any specific venue, but a member of all venues.
If you wish to compete in Athletics Victoria competition on Saturdays, you can be registered with our club. Many of our members keep up their membership of an Athletics Victoria club or a professional league and also join the masters for additional activities.
