Be Treated Like a Celebrity!Go to top

Several prizes available

Athletes who attend the Sierra Gold Masters Track and Field Festival will experience a uniquely different masters' meet. Beginning with the fact that it is called a `Festival` and because athletes compete in the trees, under the lights creating an overall festive atmosphere. Additionally, athletes will also be able to see themselves on a 9'x16' video screen, solidifying our commitment to making this a unique experience. Our entire community will treat our masters athletes as celebrities and heroes. Beginning with the opening ceremonies, complete with Taiko Drummers, cheerleaders, and a Heroes' 4x100m Relay, honoring: police, firefighters, sheriff, search and rescue, highway patrol, and teachers. Just as these men and women are heroes, so too are the men and women athletes, who compete from ages 30 to 100. Masters athletes serve as shining examples to show everyone, that it is possible to be active at any age. We expect over 1,000 cheering spectators to celebrate masters as heroes. Our age-graded awards of gold plated silver dollars, Timex watches, subscriptions to National Masters News, and world class medals to every 5 year age group contribute to the uniqueness of our meet. Moreover, we are giving prize money of $1,000 for setting a World Record and $500 for achieving an American Record. Please come to Grass Valley, California and allow our community to show their appreciation for the heroes masters athletes truly are.

 About this site:

This site is dedicated to serving Masters Athletes providing performance lists and many other features. There are 1,256,301 performances listed representing 166,397 athletes from 184 nations.

Lists on this site are progressive so athletes can see where they stand all year long. MastersRankings does not seek to replace any national ranking list - it will include those lists so World and WMA regional rankings lists are accurate and comprehensive.

It will take time to coordinate everything related to these lists. Visitors will see spikes in the number of performances listed as national federations and MastersRankings develop the protocols for posting national rankings lists within the World and WMA regional lists. A list will be labeled as final once we are confident that the top performers are listed.
