South Island Masters Track & Field

The South Island Masters Track & Field Championships are held every year in late November. They were first held in 1981, six years before the North Island equivalent was founded and twelve years after the first New Zealand Masters Track and Field Championships. Hosting rotates between the four centres of the South Island.

With the Island Champs taking place relatively early in the track season, the level of competition is relatively relaxed in comparison to Nationals. As with all masters championships, there is a high level of camaraderie.

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