The object of our club is to encourage and promote Masters Athletics, general fitness, and to provide opportunities for training and competition.
To see what Masters Athletics WA (MAWA) offers, head over to the about us page.
Over 30? Why not join us?
Membership is open to men and women 30 years of age and over.
MAWA acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures, and to Elders both past and present.

Winter Track and Field Revised Programme
The programme for the rest of the winter has been revised to show the jumps competition being run by Dave Wyatt.
Note that the beginners’ throws coaching this Thursday is hammer/weight (weather permitting).
Racecourse run – 1st August
This run will start at 7:30 for all runners and walkers in order to avoid what would be a nasty clash with the half marathon event starting at the marathon club.
After this run we will have the postponed presentation breakfast starting around 8:45.
Come and enjoy the delicious food prepared by Elaine and Melissa. Medals and trophies will be presented for the Club Half Marathon, all RRC/RWC events and the Racecourse walk handicap.
AMA 20km Walk Championship
Just need to make one point clear. Unlikely you would want to do this, but it is an option to go to Adelaide and compete in the event. If you were to do this, it would not be necessary to also enter the WA State Championship.
AMA 20km Walk Championship
As with last year a postal option is available.
The WA qualifying event is the 20km Walk State Championships on 15th August at Perry Lakes.
To enter the AMA Champs you will need to both enter the State Championship on line, ($15), and fill in this form to enter the AMA Championships.
Note that close of entries for the AMA Championships is 1st August.
State Cross Country Championships
Don’t miss the opportunity to take part in the inaugural all-ages State Cross Country Championships at Kings Park on 25th July. Masters run in normal age groupings with 70+ runners doing 6km and under 70’s 8km. Medals will be presented.
Entry is just $15 and MAWA members do not have to be registered with Athletics West
Cecil is currently in Fiona Stanley hospital having suffered a fall and a broken ankle.
We are sure he would welcome visitors
In view of the severe weather forecast for early tomorrow morning, the training session is cancelled.
Bardon Bash this week
Parkrun have met with the WA Government this week and have been asked to limit the number of runners to 150 for this weekend. They have cancelled all park runs as they say they cannot guarantee this number.
The MAWA committee believe that we should adhere to the same limit for Bardon Bash. With school holidays this week, the only risk of exceeding that number would be visitors.
We have therefore decided not to allow visitors just for this one week.

In the lead up to Australian Masters Games MAWA will hold jumps competitions at ECAC as follows:
05 August – Long and Triple
12 August – High
19 August – Long and Triple
26 August – High
02 September – Long and Triple
09 September – High
16 September – Long and Triple
23 September – High
30 September – Long and Triple
Many thanks to Dave Wyatt for coming up with the idea and managing the events.
