The City of Torun, Poland is the venue for the 2019 World Masters Athletics Indoor Championships. This is a City that is an ideal location for this Championship with a near new Indoor Stadium with outstanding facilities. In addition adjacent to the stadium are all of the needed competition areas to meet the needs of the outdoor events. An added bonus for athletes and their accompanying friends and family is that all of the competition venues are within a short distance from the City centre and the major accommodation facilities.
Torun is a beautiful and historical City with beautifully maintained buildings throughout the City area. The City is fully supporting this Championship and you are assured of a friendly reception and a heartfelt welcome by the city and its people. There are many historic displays to see and lots of things to do in Torun so be prepared to enjoy some time taking in what this City has to offer the Masters athletes from around the world.
The Polish athletics community, and in particular the Masters Athletics are experienced in organising and presented successful and enjoyable athletic championships. In particular they have hosted major IAAF Indoors competitions and European Masters Indoors Championships in recent years. The Local Organising Committee have worked hard to ensure a quality Championship takes place and I have every confidence that this will be a memorable, successful and high quality experience for all who take part.
On behalf of World Masters Athletics I extend to you this invitation to enter and participate in the 2019 WMA Championships, Indoors in Torun. I also thank Waclaw Krankowski and the Polish Masters Athletics for their support in the organisation and management of this competition. I also wish to acknowledge the support of the City of Torun and the sponsors who have contributed to making this Championship possible.
Finally, WMA extends to all participants, officials and volunteers our best wishes for a happy and enjoyable stay in Torun. Thank you for being part of our Masters Athletics family!
