Upcoming Events for the WMA and our Regions, including Championships and General Assembly Meetings.
Please be aware we are currently reviewing the entire Masters Athletics schedule for the upcoming championships, once we know more and have some confirmed information we will of course share with everyone.
The 100 km is THE premium discipline in ultra-distance running. Since 1987 national championships have been held for this distance by the German Athletics Association (DLV) and world championships by the International Association of Ultrarunners (IAU).
A fascinating and highly demanding competition which also offers a spectacular experience to the spectators, the top competitors run this distance in well under seven hours. The world record is 6:09:14 hours, which corresponds to an average speed of 16 km/h. This is a speed that fascinates the spectators and keeping them on their toes.
On behalf of the Irish Mountain Running Association, we are delighted and honoured to welcome you to Ireland for the 21st World Masters Mountain Running Championships. It is a privilege to host such a prestigious event and we have endeavored to provide a challenging and exciting course.
The race will start in Clonmel and venture into the Comeragh Mountains in County Waterford.
The championship race events will take place from the 2nd – 4th of September 2022.
We are looking forward to meeting you all and offering you a warm Irish “Céad Míle Fáilte”.
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN IN EARLY SPRING 2022

The city of Toruń, World Masters Athletics (WMA) and Polish Masters Athletics (PMA) are thrilled to announce that the 2023 WMA Indoor Championships will be held in Toruń, Poland! Masters Athletes, Members, Regions and WMA were disappointed that Athletics Alberta made the responsible decision to cancel the event in Edmonton. Subsequently, WMA was determined to find a replacement venue so the bidding process was reopened.
It is an immense challenge to stage a World Championship with this short preparation time. WMA thanks potential organizers representatives from several other member organisations for their interest and their willingness to work with us on this challenge. WMA looks forward to working with these partners on future Championships!
PMA and the city of Toruń can commit to a full WMA Championship plus offer a Mixed 4 x 200m Relay. Many of you have said how PMA and WMA produced an amazing Championship in 2019. Having successfully presented a Championship should give everyone confidence that it can be done again even with a much shorter preparation period. We are excited our team has another opportunity to exceed your expectations.
Toruń is one of the oldest and one of the most beautiful towns in Poland. It charms generation after generation with the beauty of its Gothic Old Town, which was entered onto the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. Its night-time panorama, observed from the bridge or from the Vistula’s left bank, was considered one of the 7 wonders of Poland. Nicolaus Copernicus – the man who “stopped the Sun and moved Earth” – was born in Toruń. Since the Middle Ages the town was famous for its delicious gingerbread.
Nowadays Toruń has a population of over 200 thousand and 40 thousand students, learning at the Nicolaus Copernicus University and other higher schools. Cultural life is thriving – there are numerous festivals, concerts, exhibitions, performances…
The city boasts numerous modern sports facilities. The ARENA Sports Hall, with 5200 seats, is prominent among these. This very facility will house World Masters Athletics Championships Indoor from 26th of March to 1st April 2023. The hall is only a 20-minute walk away from the Old Town.
The city is very friendly and this is appreciated by tourists – every year over 2 million people visit Toruń. Numerous restaurants, serving Polish and other cuisines, cafes, bars and clubs, most of them within the Old Town, await them. Don’t hesitate and visit Toruń as well!
