  • Age: Athletes must be 40 years or older on the day of competition.
  • Club affiliation: Athletes must be bona fide members of a 2013 USATF club in order to represent a club and score team points. For more information on Team eligibility see the next paragraph. For more information on team scoring click here.


The formation of club teams must meet all of the parameters as noted in Regulations 4 and 6 in the USATF Governance Manual, Section III and the USATF Rules of Competition, specifically Rule 341.8. This will be strictly enforced. Specifically;

  • All clubs must be registered member clubs in good standing with USATF for 2013 to be eligible to enter teams in the championship. Club membership status can be checked here. If the club's membership is not current for 2013 it can be renewed here. New clubs may register here. Note: USATF Association, Regional, or National “all-star” teams are not eligible to compete in Masters Long Distance Running Team competition.
  • All athletes entering as part of a club must be affiliated with that club as part of their USATF online membership profile (an athlete's current affiliation can be viewed in his/her membership profile and as part of the online entry process) and meet the requirements of USATF Competition Rule 341.8. Athletes wishing to change affiliations can make such a request through their local Association (note that this request must be made by the athlete--see Regulation 4 in the USATF Governance Manual, Section III). Only one athlete per team (i.e., Club M50+ team) who is a non-resident member of the club's Association is eligible to compete for a team.
