    "Boston is a for-profit race. So are you saying the World Masters Athletics Championships is (should be) too? Should we then be calling it the “world championships” if only some selected people can afford to participate?"


    Even when there are qualification standards, only selected people can afford to participate.

    Not everyone truly talented enough has the funding to be able to train to the extent required (maybe travelling to altitude or warmer climes) or to have access to the full range of integrated support teams.

    While entry and registration fees are higher for WMA than for a run-of-the-mill track meet, it's not clear why you are fixated on that cost since it would be dwarfed by travel, accommodations and food costs for 99+% of the entrants who don't live within a couple hour drive of the event.

    I was just curious. Having lived a life of entry fee only was curious about people's thoughts. Didn't realize it would start such a fire. But hey people are talking about the WMA now

    Don't forget annual membership to Ontario Masters Athletics is $60, includes Athletics Ontario, Athletics Canada and Canadian Masters Athletics. Frankly WMA seems cheap compared to other sports and clubs.

    Was being facetious. Although I don't recall a coaching code of conduct in the manual. Maybe with all that has happened in Ontario over the last year and a half they should be forward thinking about it.
