National Masters Athletics 2017

April 2, 2017

The 37th National Masters Athletics Championship 2017, conducted by India Masters Athletics, was held at Meenatai Thakre Krida Sankul, Nashik from 24th to 26th March 2017. There were about 1300 veterans, from age 30 years to the 90s, from all over India, who participated. (This meet is not to be confused with a parallel masters’ meet held by Masters Athletics Federation of India in Hyderabad in February.)

The stadium is still a work in progress, so one can find rubble here and there. Nonetheless, the overall facilities provided by the organisers, Nashik District Veterans Athletic Association, were very good. Accommodation (especially the women’s dorms) and food were excellent. The newly laid synthetic track was a pleasure to run on and provided the base for three scorching days of competition. One did miss the trees of Sports Authority Mumbai.

For me, it was a personally fulfilling event. In the Women 45+ age group I won 5 medals – gold in 80m hurdles, 400m and 4x100m relay, silver in 100m and 200m.
