The 1500m Classic will be held on the evening of 6 November at the UQ Sport Athletics Centre and as the name suggests, the event features a range of 1500 metre events for all age groups including Masters men and women. The competition will finish with a mile challenge for the elite men and women to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first ever sub four minute mile achieved by Roger Bannister. 

The Masters event starts at 6.10 pm. Entry fee for QMA members is $15. Entries close on-line on Monday 3rd November. (Late entries may be accepted on the night. Late entry fee $25) 

All QMA middle distance runners are encouraged to participate. Wear your QMA singlet!

Queensland Masters Athletics Association (QMA) promotes fitness, fun and fellowship 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 500 members from all walks of life, all levels of ability and all parts of Queensland and northern New South Wales.

The Track and Field competition in Southern Queensland is usually conducted from October through to March/April. Competition is held at three regional venues:

  • The State Athletics Facility (SAF) at Nathan
  • The Gold Coast International Athletics Facility at Griffith University on the Gold Coast, and
  • The Sunshine Coast University track at Sippy Downs on the Sunshine Coast.

The Summer 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 2019.

During the winter season, QMA members are welcome to compete in the Queensland Athletics Cross Country program. QMA conducts 4000m and 8000m cross country championships, and the half and full marathon championships.

In North Queensland the Track and Field season is conducted during the Winter months to escape the higher Summer temperatures and humidity.
