2015 Australian Masters Games


AMBC is proud to announce that it will be hosting the MTB round of the Australian Masters Games. Details are:

Competition Dates: Saturday 10 October 2015

Venue: Craigburn Farm MTB Park, Craigburn Road, Craigburn

Age Groups: 30-39, 40-49, 50-59. 60-69, 70+

This is a separate event to AMBCs Giant XCO Round 2 being held on 11th October.

Seriously, I’m looking at the array of sports on offer in these games and you can compete in Bocce, Futsal (I think that’s indoor soccer), parachuting (seriously!), ROLLER DERBY (OMG – dust of those roller skates – YES!) and probably my favourite – true grit (I’m pretty gritty)!

Age is determined by your age as of 31st December 2015. So if you’re in the lucky category like me – turning 30 in May – YOU’RE TOTALLY ELIGIBLE!

The official word from the guys over at Australian Masters Games:

Entries are now open for the 15th Australian Masters Games to be held in Adelaide this October.

The Games are a great excuse for a week away with friends, whilst enjoying the sport you love and a busy Games social program. Apart from meeting the minimum age requirement, in most sports there is no qualifying standard, so players of all levels and abilities are welcome.

New in 2015, the Airbnb Games Village will be hosted indoors in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD at the world-class Adelaide Convention Centre. The village will feature great food, drinks and nightly entertainment.

Stay tuned for further announcements, including the release of the exciting social program.
