Trail Running entries for the 16th Australian Masters Games in Tasmania's North West are now open. The run will be approximately 14km along stunning trails through the Tarkine and will start and finish at the Corinna Wilderness Village.
There will be an individual and team event to choose from. Teams must be a mixed team of four consisting of two females and two males. The combined age will determine the category in which each team competes.
More than 10,000 athletes and spectators will come together in Adelaide in 2019 for the 17th Australian Masters Games.
Tasmania’s North West has put on a show during eight days of memorable Australian Masters Games action, according to Games general manager Scott Wade.
It is impressive for anyone to take up a sport in their later years and compete as a Masters athlete, but starting out as a gymnast at the age of 60 is a remarkable achievement by Alexander Beernink.
