At its sole discretion, WMH may contact NAs in mid-September to inform them that more age groups and/or a Spirit of Masters competition have been added, should the NAs wish to enter other teams.
This event is open to women and men in the O40, O45. O50, O55, and O60 age categories. Team registrations can be submitted by going to the link at Team Registration Form Outdoor World Cup As previously announced WMH looks forward to the following outdoor World Cups in 2022:
