    You'd suspect, but you wouldn't know.

    They hold African masters championships.

    But few Kenyans show up at masters worlds. Sigh.

    I wasn't addressing Africa as a whole (South Africa a whole different ball of wax): I was addressing the three nations cited in the thread's headline.

    With Morocco struggling to keep trainers and find talent on the grassroots level, one would be hard-pressed to find a successful Master's programme in the state.

    Presently only three out of 31 WAVA/IAAF affiliated countries in Africa viz South Africa, Namibia and Mauritius are actively involved in the sport of veteran/masters athletics.

    They have been having some big 'runs', however.

    Just guessing, but given the economics of those nations, where running is generally treated as a money-generating activity for your younger days, I would suspect that the thought of a middle-aged person running "for fun" would be viewed as most strange behaviour more often than not.
