The Provisional Track and Field Programme is currently under review due to higher than anticipated registrations in certain events. The caps in Field events have been increased and events that were closed have now reopened. The revised provisional schedule will be available in Febuary 2017.

Athlete registrations for World Masters Games 2017 close 3 March 2017 (NZT). You must register by this date if you plan to compete in the Games. Note that disciplines/events will close early if they reach capacity as numbers are strictly limited.
