Welcome to the Wolves & Bilston AC Masters Page
This is where you can find out about running as a master (Over 35yrs old). The Club has many long standing athletes who now qualify for the rank of Masters, and new members who also qualify for that category.
It is a fabulous opportunity to compete against people of your own age. If you look at the Midland Masters website here you will see that the age groups range from 35yrs to 80+; so your competing days may never end!
Entry into Masters races is on an individual basis, but it would be great to see a crowd of us entering the competitions and all taking part together; the atmosphere would be electrifying, so please read the information below about the Masters and follow the link to their site for more detailed information.
We are starting off with running, but who knows where the road will take us?
