Event entry general Information

  • Location: recently refurbished 8/10 lane synthetic Doncaster Athletics Track (Google Maps)
  • Event is open to all athletes aged 30 years and over. Competition is in 5 year age groups for women & men, starting at ages 30-34.
  • The $20 per event entry fee of last year’s State Championships is being subsidised to 50% via Victorian Masters Athletics members registration fees as part of an initiative to celebrate Victorian Masters Athletics’ 50 year anniversary in 2022. So for the 2023 edition of our State Championships this makes it $10 entry fee per event / 5th event free. No entry Admin fee.
  • Interstate and overseas athletes are also welcome to enter “by invitation”.
  • For any athlete who is not affiliated with a Masters Athletics body, $10 is added to the cost of entry which gives them affiliation with Victorian Masters Athletics for the 2022/23 competition season (which also provides the affiliation required access to a number of other VMA, AMA & WMA organised events in 2023) .
  • Medal placings for top three placegetters in each age group of each event to all Victorian athletes. Likewise, medals also to be awarded to athletes competing “by invitation”
  • Entrants required to enter estimated time/distance/height for events.
  • NEW FEATURE: For Victorian athletes a team competition will be based mostly on participation and not just being an event placegetter. Teams will be awarded points for: (i) entering events (ii) performance against their estimated performance (iii) performance, based on age grading. There will be prizes/awards for the top teams across several categories. Refer to the event website for the list of teams currently available for athletes to participate in. There is a possibility new teams might be added.
  • If you are a Victorian but not already part of a team / venue, and would like to be, please get in touch with contact person below and they can facilitate your linking up with one of the teams.
  • With this event being one of the new VMA 2023 Teams Championship, all Victorian athletes are to wear the athletics top of their Masters Venue or if not a member of a Masters Venue, then that of their team or “home track”. The aim is for the VMA top not to be worn unless there is no option for an alternative top.
  • …and lastly if you are seeking even more quality competition then VMA’s new “Great Southern Pentathlon” is just a week after the VMA State Championships on Sunday, February 19th. Here is link to information for this event.  https://vicmastersaths.org.au/event/vma-track-field-championships-2/
