Competition Director David Budge said that plans are on track to deliver the best World Masters Athletics Championship ever.
“We look forward to what will be a fantastic spectacle, beginning with the opening ceremony at Perth’s exciting Elizabeth Quay development,” said David.
“We’re expecting an impressive mix of former Olympians, record holders as well as a handful of participants who are over one hundred years old, and we call on all international masters’ athletes, especially those in the Oceania region, to register and join in the excitement as the event draws closer.”
The championship will run from 26th October to 6th November and will include the Athletes’ Party at the Perth Zoo.
Competition will be held at various locations around Perth including the Western Australia Athletics Stadium in Mt Claremont, Ern Clark Athetics Centre in Cannington, with non-stadia events run at Burswood and Perry Lakes.
There are many ways West Australians can get involved by:
- Competing – open to competitors 35 yrs and over, there are no qualifying times so anyone who wants to compete can register. The deadline for online entries is Thursday 25th August 2016.
- Volunteering – we have over 300 various volunteer roles to make the event successful. All roles will give volunteers great exposure to international athletes offering a fulfilling experience. If you would like to volunteer visit our website to register.
