Welcome to QMA - 50 Years Young!
QMA 50th Anniversary Magazine
Queensland Masters Athletics Association (QMA) promotes fitness, fun and friendship through a range of athletic activities for everyone, from beginner to age group elite standard. Membership starts from 30 years through to 100+.
Competition is conducted in 5 year age divisions, .e.g. M40-44, W55-59. The association currently has around 400 members from all walks of life, all levels of ability and all parts of Queensland and northern New South Wales.
Thinking about joining in, but not sure? We welcome visitors to come along to the track and just get a feel for what's going on, or have a go at competition. All are welcome - check the Brisbane Calendar or Gold Coast Calendar for details. If you're not in the South East check out your Local Athletics Club - you'll be welcome to join in there too. And don't forget organized Training Groups for sprinters and distance runners - work at your own pace, all welcome.
Volunteering at the Track
We see them every week - the dedicated handful of volunteers who ensure we have well run track and field masters competitions, in all weathers. We salute you!
But they can't do it alone (or forever) - every competitor (or friend) is urged to put up their hand to help with an event or competition when they can. Volunteers are particularly needed on days when Championship events are on the program.
In Brisbane, you can volunteer to assist on one event on a day when you register to compete. Brisbane members now also have the opportunity to volunteer for a specific day during the rest of the season, and specify what area they prefer - click the link above.

Safety at the Track
A reminder to all track and field competitors that the safety of yourself and others is paramount.
What does this mean in practice? Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Before crossing the track always check if there is an event in progress. Never cross the infield when a competition is on, walk around the outside of the track to get where you're going.
Stay Safe - protect yourself and others.
Group Training - It's For Everyone!
A great way to get involved in Masters Athletics:
