Oceania Masters
3000m

The 3000m is an unusual event as it was not included as part of the National Championship from 1981 to 2016. Athletics NZ have recently reinstated it as a separate event. It has not been contested at the Olympics since 1924 for men. It was an Olympic distance for women from 1984 to 1992 and was dropped when women's distances were standardised to be the same as for men.

At Oceanias it was held twice in the early years in the place of the 5000m and for one of those only as a way to separate the distances for men and women.

National association holding athlete registration at time of competition is indicated by country code:

  • AU - Australia

  • CK - Cook Islands

  • FJ - Fiji
