There are no qualifying performance standards for the WMA Championships.
Everyone is welcome.
People compete in five-year age groups.
An age group may contain everyone from a world-class elite athlete to a recreational runner.
Everyone tries their best and has fun!

I have been to 12 World Championships – and I usually finish last. I always give it my best shot and have a great time. The camaraderie is fantastic! – Doug Smith
