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.
QMA established regions (based on postcodes) to conduct and promote Masters Athletics for athletes across Queensland.
The Regions are:
The Track and Field competition in Southern Queensland is usually conducted from October through to March/April.
The Summer Track and Field Program leads up to the State Championships usually held in March and the National Championships which are usually held over the Easter long weekend with the host state changing each year on a rotational basis. Queensland will host the Nationals again in 2020.
During the winter season, QMA members are welcome to compete in the Queensland Athletics Cross Country program. Also during Winter, QMA holds a range of Out-of-Stadia Championships including cross country, road runs (with half and full marathon championships) and road walks. These are usually run in conjunction with events hosted by other organisations.
In North Queensland the Track and Field season is conducted during the Winter months to escape the higher Summer temperatures and humidity.
