The strongest Masters track & field team in the world

Team USATF has over twice as many internationally ranked Masters track & field athletes than the next two highest countries, Germany and England. However, in the last seven World Masters Athletics (“WMA”) Championships, Team USATF has finished as the top non-host medal winner only twice. Unlike other USA international teams, Team USATF’s Masters athletes must pay all their own travel expenses. As a result, many of the top Team USATF Masters athletes have been unable to participate in WMA Championships because of financial constraints.

The USATF Foundation has partnered with the USATF Masters Track & Field Committee to provide an ongoing source of travel grant support for outstanding Team USATF Masters Track & Field athletes. The WMA Travel Grant Program will award grants to Team USATF Masters Track & Field athletes on an annual basis. The next three WMA World Championships are:

2022: WMA Outdoor Championships

Tampere, Finland; June 29–July 10, 2022

2023: WMA Indoor Championships

Edmonton, Canada; March 27–April 3, 2023

2024: WMA Outdoor Championships

Gothenburg, Sweden; dates TBD

Your support is critical to ensuring the success of Team USATF at WMA Championships.
