Oceania Masters Championships

The Oceania Masters Championships are held in alternate seasons under the control of Oceania Masters Athletics. Primarily a track and field competition, there are some non-stadia events offered - cross country, 10km road walk and half marathon.

The earlier championships were hosted with no set pattern but now they rotate between New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands. They usually take place in the second half of the track season when in New Zealand or Australia and early in the season when in the Pacific Islands.

The 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.

A standard programme of events has been established by the OMA council. Of these events it is accepted that the Steeplechase and Pole Vault may not be held if the hosting centre does not have such facilities. A decathlon or hepathlon may be offered as optional events and are not mandatory.

Before the standard programme was developed, there was some variation in events. Some events, such as the half marathon or 60m sprint, are more recent additions to the programme. Non-standard events previously contested include a 10km and 16km road run, walks of 1500m, 15km and 20km and a swim-bike-run triathlon.
