New Zealand Masters Track & Field

The NZ Masters National Track & Field Championships are held every year in late February or early March, apart from the first three which were held over the easter weekend (exceptions are noted below in table). They were first held in 1975 in Christchurch. Hosting rotates between the eleven centres of the country.

Unlike the winter harrier events, Athletics New Zealand championships do not provide for masters. Masters can enter the ANZ Championships but only if they meet the qualifying threshold for senior athletes.

The NZ Masters Track & Field Championships are open to entry for all members with no qualifying performance thresholds. As with all masters championships, there is a high level of camaraderie.

From 2015 a new standard programme has been developed that allows the championship to run from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. The main difference to previous years is the relocation of the throws pentathlon from Monday to Sunday.

Those championships known to me to have taken place on grass tracks are marked [G].
