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.
All Ages State Championships
This year for the first time there will be ‘all-ages’ State Championships for Cross Country and the 20km Road Walk, ie the events will include the normal Masters age groups.
The Cross County will be the normal 8km for under 70’s and 6km for over 70’s and will be held at Kings Park on 25th July. The 20km Walk will be at Perry Lakes on 15th August.
All MAWA members will only pay the ‘AW member’ entry fee.
Further information will be provided when entries open.
Throws Coaching for Beginners
Glenn Bartlett is going to do a series of beginners throws sessions at ECAC starting this week Thursday 10 June, (may not be possible in inclement weather)
10 June 5.30pm – 6.00pm Discus
17 June 5.30pm – 6.00pm Discus
24 June 5.30pm – 6.00pm Shot
1 July 5.30pm – 6.00pm Shot
8 July 5.30pm – 6.00pm Javelin
15 July 5.30pm – 6.00pm Javelin
He will go through the basics so for those who have never had any throws coaching or at best very rudimentary lessons during competition, come along you will learn something.
What to Bring:
A towel: it may be wet or at the least the implements will get wet and will need to be dried to throw
Shoes to throw in: for discus and shot break out those old bald soled shoes that slip on wet concrete. For javelin normal runners will suffice.
If you want , bring an exercise book to make notes to help you remember

RRC and RWC 2021
We had very strong support this year for the 50km Championship, but less so for the walking event. For the short RRC/RWC events, disappointingly we had no female entrants in the run. We will advertise the short championships more strongly next year.
Congratulations to Chris Lark and Clare Wardle on winning the long events with exceptional times of 3:50 and 4:17 min/km.
Club stalwart John McDonagh took out the men’s Walking Championship while Melissa Lewis clocked an outstanding 6:22 min/km over the 30km distance.
Short event Championship wins went to David Adams, Mike Anderson and Liz Gomez.
Please contact Barbara at email@example.com for any mistakes or omissions.
Just a reminder that Sunday Run reports are now posted soon after the run and can be accessed from the Road Tab
