WMA PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

21st WORLD MASTERS MOUNTAIN RUNNING CHAMPIONSHIPS 2022

2nd to 4th SEPTEMBER 2022 IN CLONMEL CO. TIPPERARY/ IRELAND

 

Welcome to the 21st World Masters Mountain Running Championships.

The Irish Mountain Running Association (IMRA) is inviting masters athletes to participate in the Championships 2022 (WMMRC). The Comeragh Mountains will offer great scenery, where the LOC promise to provide a challenging and varied course. We all hope that the impact of the covid pandemic will be under control and all participants can enjoy their competition at this international level.

These championships are a win-win situation for the athletes and our organisations: WMRA, responsible for the mountain running competitions in the world, and WMA, responsible for world masters’ competitions in athletics.

I thank WMRA for the successful cooperation, the town of Clonmel and the Irish Mountain Running Association for the invitation of the mountain running family. Thank you for the strong commitment to be the hosts for the 21st World Masters Mountain Running Championships (WMMRC).  All athletes will be glad to discover Irish nature, culture and the hospitality of the Irish people.

On behalf of World Masters Athletics Vice-President Competition Alan Bell will welcome you in Clonmel as participant or official in this World Championships 2021. Enjoy athletics, friendship and new experiences in the Masters Mountain running Athletics family! Stay healthy.

On behalf of the WMA Council,

Margit Jungmann
