List of world records in masters athletics

These are the current world records in the various age groups of Masters athletics, maintained by WMA, the World Association of Masters Athletes, which is designated by the IAAF to conduct the worldwide sport of Masters (Veterans) Athletics (Track and Field).[1] Starting at age 35, each age group starts on the athlete's birthday in years that are evenly divisible by 5 and extends until the next such occurrence. For record purposes, older athletes are not included in younger age groups, except in the case of relay team members. A relay team's age group is determined by the age of the youngest member.

Some Masters events (hurdles, throwing implements) have modified specifications. The combined events use an age-graded result applied against the standard scoring table.
