Masters at Cherrybrook   

Masters is for athletes aged 30 and over, and is divided into 5 year age groups (30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, etc). Cherrybrook Masters compete as part of our Friday night program during the summer season running from September through to the middle of March each year, following basically the same programme as our seniors, as well as a winter and summer program prepared by Athletics NSW.  Masters can also compete during our winter Cross Country season from May through to July each year.

You don't have to have been an athlete in your youth to do Masters events; many people take it up in later life,  to keep fit and have fun, or to try something new.  As well as Friday night club sessions, there are many additional opportunities to compete available, including:

  •     All Comers events at Homebush

  •     Masters State Titles (held each year in late March or early April) 

  •     National Championships (held each Easter in different state capitals) 

  •     Australian and World Masters Games, and many more
