Tasmanian Masters Athletics Records
Our club maintains a database of state records for Masters athletics. Records are maintained in five year age groups. Tasmanian Masters records can only be set by financial members of TMA or members of other states or countries competing in Tasmania.
Requirements for Records
Athletes are to notify the meet manager if they think they are likely to break a record on a Wednesday night, so that steps can be taken to have appropriate lap recorders, watches and wind gauge available.
